Becoming a Woman of Courage

There is peace in salvation. There is peace in Jesus. There is forgiveness and rest in the Lord. But, may I be so bold – now what? We have been transferred from the Kingdom of Darkness and brought into the Kingdom of Light. Can I ask, “What do we do now?”

“For He has rescued us and has drawn us to Himself from the dominion of darkness, and has transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,  in whom we have redemption [because of His sacrifice, resulting in] the forgiveness of our sins [and the cancellation of sins’ penalty.” “- Colossians 1:13-14 AMP

 

That is my saga. My Pastor challenged us today. He said, “Don’t stop.” Two simple words that rocked me in the spirit. Don’t stop Diana. God is not done yet. There is a battle to be fought, souls to be won, and new life to be given.

“being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;” -Phillipains 1;6 NKJV

There are those who have been taken captive by the Enemy’s lies and have believed the Liar. They are suffering, hopeless, and think that nobody cares or sees. That is not true. We are still here in the Kingdom and if God did it for us, He will bring them hope as well. God is no respecter of persons. He is not willing that any should perish.

God has raised us up Body of Christ for such a time as this. We are the light of the world and can grab them back from the edge of the cliff. We see and we hear their cries. We can step out with the compassion of Christ and make a difference.

Get up, look up, and don’t stop. God is not finished yet. He has raised you up for such a time as this!

“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,  keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

And on some have compassion, making a distinction;  but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.” – Jude 1:20-23 NKJV

The Mother With One Eye

As many of you know, My oldest daughter is getting married this weekend, so I may be reblogging some of  your posts for the next few days. Thank you all for your prayers during this time. I am excited and calm – way better than a month ago when I was complaining about having to see the ex!

I am such a proud mama and I will share pictures after Saturday.  Let me just say – it is right out of a fairy-tale.  The wedding ceremony is private at a park – only immediate family for that part, with a Cello player (thank you Stephanie E!) and the the Bride and Groom will travel by boat to the reception…with more surprises to come!  Then the big party on the Lake with family and friends, and….more to come!

This story by Coach Muller reminded me of a mother’s love for her children – enjoy! And be sure to follow Coach Muller at his blog Good Time Stories

My Precious Child

MY PRECIOUS CHILD 

(Paraphrased from Isaiah 49, 51, 54 AMP)

My precious child,  I have not forgotten you.
Can a mother forget her own child?
Walk away from the baby she bore?
Though she may forget, I will never forget you.
I have you engraved on the palms of My Hands.
Your walls are forever before me.
Before you were born I called you,
From your mothers womb I have spoken your name.
 I am your Maker and your Husband,
the Lord of hosts is my Name.
The Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer.
For a brief moment I forsook you,
But with great compassion and mercy,
I will gather you to Me again.
In a little burst of wrath I hid my face,
But I have taken the terrible cup from your hands,
you will drink no more of my fury.
With age enduring love and kindness,
I will have compassion and mercy on you.
For though the mountains should depart,
and the hills be shaken or removed,
Yet my love and kindness shall not depart from you.
Nor shall my covenant of peace and completeness be removed,
Says the Lord, who has compassion on You.
