The enemy took some of my fingers. He damaged my feet and right arm. Every day he shows up and attacks and tries to get me to quit.
He tells me I’m too weak. I can’t touch anyone’s heart or make a real difference. He encourages me to sleep in and skip my workout and writing time.
But I’ve learned to use my tears to push through my challenges instead of using them as an excuse to quit.
Satan might have taken things from me and damaged my body, but he can’t take MY STRONG WILL.
Regardless of what the enemy does to me, I WILL GET BACK UP.
I WILL praise my Lord.
I WILL love others.
I WILL share my challenges and how God blesses me to overcome each one.
I WILL fight back and TRUST the Lord to help me.
I WILL write the words on my heart because they matter to me.
I WILL cry if I need to, crawl through the trenches, and withstand each blow.
I WILL make my dreams come true. I WILL show my kids what is possible. I WILL take each step by faith and trust God to catch me when I fall.
I WILL overcome each hardship because greater is HE that lives in me.
Romans 8:28 King James Version
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
What the enemy tried to destroy, God uses for good. Everything I do with my hands and feet is a victory and a slap in the face to the enemy. The enemy wants me to be ashamed of my scars and the challenges they bring. But I’m not ashamed. I have no guilt or shame.
I use each scar to praise my Lord. I am so incredibly grateful for my life.
