Big Question





Here's a big question.

What is God doing when you are in a bind?
I know what we are doing.
Nibbling our nails like corn on the cob,
Pacing the floors .
But what does God do?
He Fights for us.
He steps into the ring and points
us to our corner and he takes over.
"Remain Calm, the Lord will fight for you"
Exodus 14:14

His job is to fight.
Our job is to Trust.
Just Trust,
Not Direct
Not Question.
Our job is to pray and wait.

He is my defender, I will not be defeated
Psalm 62:6

Hey Karen,
Sorry for taking so long to get back to you... I had my posts scheduled for the past few weeks on the SPA Diaries page due to a fairly busy schedule. Thank you so much for sharing your story with us and letting us know how God ultimately used Fireproof to impact your life in such a huge and blessed way!

Karen,
I am visiting from Tiffany's blog.

Trust.... everything always comes back to trust, I believe. What would I do without the Mighty Warrior fighting my battles. I do not know.

It's great to meet you!
