Fighting the Good Fight of Faith (Continued)

Written by  //  February 24, 2016  //  Jump to Article  // 

I started singing my favorite praise and worship songs. But the tears were still coming so I felt that I needed to pull out the big guns. I put on my “Atomic Power of Prayer” CD by Dr. Cindy Trimm and it was on! When I say that Dr. Trimm casts out every kind of demon in that CD, it is no exaggeration. She prays with such authority and uses scripture to enforce it. I felt that sense of heaviness lifting off of me as I prayed in my heavenly language, repeated what she was saying and moaned when I couldn’t get out anything else.

As I started to feel myself coming back to a strong state of mind, I remembered that I’m responsible for fighting the good fight of faith. I knew that I had to stir myself up like David. I am resilient.

God doesn’t promise us that we won’t go through trials and tribulations. What He does promise is that He will never leave us nor forsake us. And since that time, I have learned how to be content. I have learned how to stretch a meal, cook better, and use far less. In the period of lack came a level of resourcefulness I had never known before.

Someone asked me recently, “with everything that has come against you, how do you make it?’ My answer, “God is my hope. He said in my weakness I am made perfect. He won’t leave me in this valley forever. I know that my breakthrough is coming. I’ll have double for my trouble; beauty for ashes; gain for my shame. He loves me.” Keeping the faith and continuing to write about His goodness and grace as I run this race!
