Be Strong in the Lord

Posted on the 20 June 2012 by Brittany_tyd @Brittany_TYD
This morning I woke up and saw Megan's picture on twitter showing her bible, journal and coffee. I couldn't resist. During seasons of GMG I had quiet time every single morning (barring a few unexpected circumstances), but now quiet time happens at different times of the day for me, and not quite as often. 
I have a few different potential opportunities floating around right now, and I'm not quite sure what the Lord is trying to show me through them. I know which option would be great to grasp onto in fear and protect my heart, and which would follow what he's told me to do - but involves being vulnerable and open hearted. 
Yesterday I was really going with fear, and even emailed a girlfriend pouring out my heart on the subject. So I prayed about it. It's funny how when you pray something and feel confirmation - it's really easy to either (1) forget about it; or (2) start to doubt that it could be true. My attitude changed on the spot. If that's not proof of God's will, I don't know what is.
Then this morning I opened my bible and came up on the verses on the Armor of God. It starts, "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might." Be Strong in the Lord I felt like God was speaking straight to my heart. Yesterday I was believing lies. Yesterday I was grasping onto the fear that the evil one was placing right in front of my face.
So, today. Today I am going to be strong in the Lord. I'm going to accept that I can't even rest in my own strength, but in the strength of his might. And I'm going to pray for a shield of faith to extinguish the darts of the evil one. 
PS. I've decided to stop doing Truth-Filled Thursday. I tried it for about two months and it just never garnered much participation or attention, except from my lovely friend Jenna. Instead, I'm linking up at at a new blog-hop called "Into the Word Wednesday." It's a similar idea and still satisfies my urge to find faith-bloggers who care about the Word of God.
