War Cry

It is a medical fact that if someone loses a kidney, the remaining organ works twice as hard until it goes into failure. Sociological research shows that someone that was denied affectionate love is likely to find themselves seeking alternative donors, statically predisposed to negative, unhealthy outcomes. Internally and externally: voluntary or unintentionally, our natural affinity toward self preservation is wired to compensate for the sake of survival. Our own body will turn on itself if it perceives our very cells within as a threat. If we are careless and unconscious hindsight will reveal that our chosen instruments of replacement were unhealthy and led us toward more damage. What good are my weapons if they destroy me as well as my opponent? Deprivation is always divine. If we are courageous we can take the hard route of sacrificing our felt need to the bigger purpose our circumstances are sent to reveal. We can relinquish our stake in the matter and trust God to expose His perfect plan for our life. We can believe that all things work together for the good of those that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. We can do all this, we can do all things and after time, we will find strength in the scar tissue of character that remains, after all, our battles are already fought and won.

Today ladies, remember, we are more the conquerors.
Be beauty for ashes

  1. Our own body will turn on itself if it perceives our very cells within
    as a threat (example: rheumatoid arthritis (RA) - the immune system
    doesn't recognize the joints so it attacks them!)

    Wouldn't it be great if, before we could do something to harm ourselves
    spiritually, God has a built in terminator to ward them off! We do, it's
    called our conscience or for those that are saved, the power of the Holy
    Spirit that lies within us, to keep us from falling!

    We minimize or simply ignore that power that we think we hold instead of
    trusting God through faith that HE is the source of that power and not
    us!

    I am constantly being set straight by my convictions - ooh wee!!!!!!!!!

  2. That reminds me of one of my favorite songs, which is sung by Yolanda Adams, "The Battle Is Not Yours."
