Trials and Temptations

While I have been participating in the OBS, What Happens When Women Say Yes To God, I have learned a lot about myself and what I would like to do and what The Lord is calling me to do.  Great things are in my future.

I have said YES!  Many of us have said Yes before, but did you really say YES.  I understand when I said YES things were really going to get hard.  The harder I work at being what God has called, the harder the devil works at telling me how wrong I am.  
I’m a sinner and I’m not perfect, however, God loves me.  I would like to make each day count and do what The Lord has for me to do.  It is hard for me to listen at times, so having my Quiet Time in my White Space is what I have to do.  Everyday though, the devil tempts me and tries to take this time I have set aside for God away.  It takes every ounce of me to fight….. But I have a great person fighting with me.  He gives me the strength I need.
Today I read James chapters 1 and 2.  As I read scripture wrote so long ago, I can tell it was written for me to read today, September 4, 2013.  I am facing a lot of trials and temptation in my life, BUT I know The Lord has my back.  It is a great feeling to know, no matter what, He is there for me.  I will persevere so I will receive the Crown of Life.
My goal today is to take this day and make the most of it.  I am not worrying about tomorrow or next week or next year.  The Lord has a plan and I know these trials I have now will make me into the woman God wants me to be.  I have put my trust in Him and I feel great knowing He is guiding my footsteps.
Dear Lord, thank you for another beautiful day.  Thank you for the 1000 gifts you have given me. I am so Blessed and I’m saying YES to you everyday.  I know it will be hard, but I also know you will be there.  Thank you for being my loving Father, Protector, Friend, and Great Physician.  Amen.
