But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.
Yesterday Tim and I got talking about how good it is to have something to fight for! From the beginning of our lives, we both learned how to fight quickly so we just do not know life without a fight. And now that life is good for both of us, we see ourselves fighting again, in lots of different ways, for lots of different things. And it wasn’t till yesterday that we stood still and realized the blessing of a good fight. We just can’t imagine living life without having something to fight for.
The blessing is that the fight is hard, and we can’t fight alone. We are required to spend time with God daily to get our focus, our strength, wisdom, to get care for our heart. And that is such an amazing thing. Any fight is hard, and painful, and a great source of stress. It takes energy and to sit in my car last night being filled with God’s presence is such an amazing thing. I just can describe it, you have to live it to understand. And all I could do was praise over and over again: God, thank you for being faithful to my heart!
I write this post in honor of my friend Vicky , who fights a good fight. Her fight, like so many, is pretty unfair, yet, she won’t tell you that. Vicky only speaks of how good God is in the fight!!
I love that you are here and I would certainly love to hear from you. To leave a comment go HERE !
