Recently, I was given a chance to meet with one of the people who had made an impact and great change in my life, Tara. If not for them or for what her mom had done, I would not be able to endure this journey that I have taken on, I felt very privilege talking and be able to share my love for my Lord with her and she had given me hope and insights which will be very helpful for me in the narrow road that I am taking right now. It felt so good talking to someone like minded who also share the same passion and love I have for my HH.
She then told me about Yvonne she knew to now be a worker@home and in my heart ii felt that this opportunity is knocking on me as I have always dreamed and prayed for this chance to be able to work at home while i take care of my son after i gave birth. I cannot believe how the LORD had sent what i had prayed for even so much more than i deserve, right after, i received an email with many promises which are all fulfilling, being offered a position to be a worker@home but i let the enemy steal this joy for me as i felt sudden fear.
I feared that if i submit myself, and become an instrument for my Beloved, i will be an easy prey and trials will come my way. I am ashamed to admit, i was defeated that time so i cried to my HH in His lap and asked Him to deliver me from this feeling, to forgive me for not following His will for my life and to help me follow where He leads me. The moment i woke up today, He answered me through my daily devotional “Jesus told us that we should not hide our light under a stand, but we are to let it shine so that the world can see it and come to that light. Let it rise and shine today. ”
I got an encouraging email after I backed away, this wise woman said, “Yes, Cherie, It’s true that we are often attacked, but everyone is. By doing something for Him, however, we are richly blessed in the end—not to mention, the sweeter relationship we encounter with Him.”
I won’t let the enemy have a field day on me, not today, not tomorrow, not ever. Starting from now, I will no longer be afraid, for i have my Beloved with me. He will walk with me through the valley of shadow and death and He will deliver me. His perfect love will cast out all my fears. This is for His glory and it’s what i had been praying for, for Him to use me and my life for His glory.
I love You so much my HH, my Lord and my Life and i am very grateful for your grace and mercy. Thank you so much for the people You keep sending to my life to aid in this journey that i am having.
For behold, darkness will cover the earth, and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you, and His glory will appear upon you” (Is. 60:2).
Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Psalm 27:13-14 I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.
