When I told the Lord, “YES I’m yours. Use me, send me, I’ll do whatever you tell me to do” I knew it was not always going to be an easy road. I counted the cost and chose to do things His way. However, when enemy fire begins, I still find myself gasping for air and questioning myself. I have never been in the military and fought a physical war, but I can only imagine a soldier’s first battle (or even the second, third). When they enlist, they know what they are signing on for. They counted the cost and chose to serve anyway. They agreed to protect their people from their enemies. They go through extensive training and have an idea of what they will face. However, I can also imagine that even with the very best training and leaders, when it becomes REAL, their hearts pound, and at some points when enemy fire is coming in, they may ask themselves what in the world have they done. Then once that battle is over, they get up ready to go again. They are a soldier, a warrior, at their very core.
As I go behind enemy lines, to bring out each child, the enemy thought they had, the incoming fire gets more intense. Each time, I wonder what i was thinking when I signed on for this. Then I breathe, recuperate and remember what Jesus did for me. Anything I do for Him is minuscule in comparison. He gave His ALL for me, so I can give all I am back to Him. I also know we don’t win battles with one soldier. We have our fellow soldiers’ back💜💜💜
Thank you, Jesus for receiving my yes. Help me to remember that the battle belongs to you and that you said yes first. Thank you for being my strength, especially in my weakness. Thank you for sending me yourSpirit to help me to fulfill your purposes. In Jesus name, amen.
