With His Might, We Fight!

It was my birthday last Thursday
and I received these beautiful flowers
from my sisters in the Lord
after they honored me.
One of our "traditions" in our community,
The Joy of the Lord,
is we honor each other on our birthdays,
and my sisters encouraged me
and pointed out my good qualities!

The next day, I brought my flowers
to my mother's bedside.
As some of you know,
my mother is sick and I have been so appreciative
of your support and prayers.
Today's bible verse resonated with me.
"Only say the word and my servant 
will be healed." Matthew 8:8

In The Word Among Us, I read:
"It can be hard to believe but it's true:
Jesus is thrilled when we
 proclaim our faith and trust in Him.
It puts a smile on His face and fills Him with Joy.
So let's make this the cry of our hearts this Advent:
'Lord, I am not worthy, but only
say the word and __________ will be healed.'
"Believe that He is a good God.
Trust that He will take care of you."

Yes God is good!
He sent Dr. Tony Mix to help in her healing.
He came to visit her the other day,
wearing this chicken hat!
Of course my mom could not help but smile!
He also stayed the night to see what her nurse
and caregiver were doing!
I don't know of any other doctor
who is more committed than that!

Yesterday I read from both 
Matthew 24:42 and Romans 13:11
that we should STAY AWAKE!
Some of us do not know that we are at war
and are very complacent!
We are at war against evil in our society,
in our homes, even in our heart sometimes!

But we are not alone in our fight!
We fight with God's might,
His strength, and His wisdom!

Last November 30 was the Feast Day
of St. Andrew.
He was first a disciple of John the Baptist
until John pointed out Jesus
and said, "There is the lamb of God."

After that Andrew followed Him
and called his brother Simon,
who became St. Peter.
We too are called to share the Good News
like St. Andrew and to point Him out to others!

Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it soooo much!

This week, chose

  3. "Creation" just exuberates from your site! I have watched my 7 yr old go from stick men to elaborate princess-like drawings almost overnight, and I see how the ability to draw/create/do art is such a gift from God. So sorry I missed stopping by to say "Happy Birthday" last Thursday! Hope is was such a blessed one! Praying this year the Creator continues to pour out His creations in and through you, friend! Thanks again for UNITING! ~ Jen
