Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.
WOW! I bet you all thought I was not coming back from my date!!!! LOL!!!!!! Well, I need to tell you that we had the best time. We went to Brussels to the Amedeo Restaurant. They serve all you can eat spareribs. Oh my goodness, it was absolutely wonderful! Randy and I laughed and talked about everything! It was awesome. I loved it!!!
Randy and I are trying to rekindle our romantic side of our relationship. Randy is gone most of the time due to his military schedule, and GOD has been really speaking to both of us to stay connected. So, Randy asked me for a date, and obviously I accepted. TEE HEE! ( I giggle like school girl)
GOD has been working on me for over a year to be the BIBLICAL wife HE created me to be. GOD has revealed to me things I was falling short in, so I have been growing and changing and it is awesome, but don't you know when you try to bring GOD in on anything you do, Satan wants to ruin that.
I was reminded by a sister in CHRIST the other day about King David. David decided to bring the Ark of the Covenant back to Jerusalem and when he did, he was attacked from ALL the Philistines. When the BIBLE says ALL, it means ALL. That was a huge attack. It is the same with Christians who are REALLY trying to grow closer to GOD in obedience. When we do what GOD asks, here comes the enemy to attack trying to knock us off our axis. The enemy doesn't want us to have a closer relationship with our wonderful GOD. So, Satan came in and stirred up some trouble.
Like I said earlier, we had a great time on our date, but then the next day Randy got sick, and I became extremely hormonal, and it all went to pot after that. It was a rough few days for us. The enemy was really trying to knock us back down, but with much prayer and love, we are fine and happy.
We started to follow the enemy, but GOD stepped in and told me not to follow after the wrong emotions. HE told me to take every bad thought and emotion captive to the obedience of CHRIST, to be meek and humble, and HE will fight my battle as I give it to HIM in obedience. I gave it to HIM, and HE being faithful, brought Randy and I back together in love.
I am in awe of GOD, HE is so amazing! Thank YOU GOD for taking good care of me and my family, fighting off the enemy when we are too weak to battle.
I know it is good that we are tested in our faith, it produces a stronger relationship with our FATHER. PRAISE GOD!
As my Pastor says... A faith not tested, is a faith not trusted.
GOD Bless You!
