Becky writes the following testimony of God's enduring power as she faces the fires of adversity. Oh that we would trust Him more!
I have walked through the fire and although I am singed, because of God's grace I appear to be intact. I have just had two (2) of the most heartbreaking days I have ever had. And yet, here I sit full of God's love and wrapped in His mercy.
I can see more fires smoldering and burning in the distance and I should be afraid, I should feel powerless, I should feel hopeless...but I do not, because God is fearless, God is all powerful and God is the source of all hope . And because Christ lives in me, I have access to the Father and all He has is mine!
Psalm 18:32 "It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect."
Colossians 1:11 "...being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance."
And finally, this verse which I think will be my theme as I face the fires to come: Proverbs 31:25 "She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come."
