Wow. So, WordPress sends me a 2012 report. They show me my most popular posts, my followers, my stats, my visits, and other intriguing information. And they show me this as well.
I. Have. Changed.
So much. I can’t even begin to say the work that God has done to this heart. To this Jesus Girl. A smile sits on my face and a song in my heart. ‘Cuz this Jesus Girl loves Jesus even more today then she did a year ago. Praise, Jesus. For change.
A blessed, 2013 to every one of my writing friends! Those I’ve met, and those I haven’t. You are loved.

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Notice the armor of God is for the front of us? We are to stand; to not back down from darkness and evil but to face forward, stand strong, and advance. Don’t even turn your back. The armor is in front of you. You got the full armor of God? Stand your ground and go forward and fight.

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
I don’t know what to say. Sometimes all you can do is hold onto the promises. And believe that they are true. Because they are.

“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” – Isaiah 54:10
Trust in the midst of turmoil; love in the midst of hate; compassion in the midst of judgment; peace in the midst of confusion. Try to wrap your mind around it. You can’t. You won’t. Not completely. The Father God – the Ancient of Days – His ways to our ways may be compare to a drop to an ocean. There is no comparison – the mass, the depth, and the movement between the two is vastly distinct; one clearly more powerful than the other. That’s our ways and God’s ways. He is God. And there is none like Him.
