I have been feeling really troubled lately with the things that are going on with Tori, I have let my emotions get the better of me.  Today I was reading Ephesians 6.  Below is what is encouraging me today!

10In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].



John 14

1DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me.

 And I love Joyce Meyer’s notes in The Everyday Life Bible about putting on the whole armor of God to prepare us for our day.  Here are some scriptures to reflect on.
13Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].

    14Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,

15And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the [a]firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness [b]produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.(B)

16Lift up over all the [covering] shield of [c]saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].

17And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit [d]wields, which is the Word of God.

18Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).


Today I am praying that all of us moms (and dads) will have God’s perfect peace and continue to have faith in the midst of all of our therapy and doctors appointments!  Lord flood us with perfect peace today and help us to go out prepared for our day with your armor!
