It’s Friday and time for another link up with the Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday…”a time when we write for 5 minutes not worrying if everything is just right.” If you would like to join in CLICK HERE.
For years, I had this verse written on a slip of paper and hanging on my fridge door. It inspired me to be brave during a season in my life when I was feeling anything but. Every time I wanted to take a drink, it was a daily reminder to me that the One I was clinging to was infinitely bigger.
I didn’t have to hide anymore. I didn’t have to run away in fear anymore. I could turn and face the giant who was pursuing me. I could stand up to him. I could be brave.
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.
His strength filled me up in a way that alcohol never ever could.
I’m not sure whatever happened to that verse on my fridge door. But, I do know, that it now hangs permanently on the door to my heart.
