Myspace tagline "It's in God's hands now"

It's neat to see how God has been using my tag line from my myspace page to remind me that He's got everything in His control. I may not understand why something is happening, but my job is to stand firm in Him and just trust.

Satan has really be fighting with me and some of my friends this week. Last night I had such a great night with one of my friends. I was encouraged...we had ran into a mutual friend and was able to have a really good conversation with that friend...and it was really nice to take our focus off our problems. Of course today though, Satan is back at it thinking that if he can just get our focus off again, he will be able to win. While sitting here thinking about what's been happening to my friends and myself, I realized yesterday my perspective was on God...not the problem. Yesterday my focus was that God is in control I just need to continue to pray about the situations and just stand firm. How easy it almost grabbed at me and took me under the water.

God has been faithful to me...and a great Jennifer Knapp song has been running through my head since yesterday. It's entitled "Faithful to me" I'm gonna share it here, because I believe we all need to be encouraged and that we all need to stand with each other and allow God to fight Satan. We don't need to get involved with the fight. God's so much better at fighting Satan than we are. It's easier to stand firm in God's grasp than trying to keep our balance in the battle field. Hope these words will be of some encouragement to you.

"Faithful to Me"

All the chisels I've dulled carving idols of stone
That have crumbled like sand 'neath the waves
I've recklessly built all my dreams in the sand
Just to watch them all wash away

Through another day, anther trial, another chance to reconcile
To One Who sees past all I see
And reaching out my weary hand, I pray that You'd understand
You're the only One Who's faithful to me

All the pennies I've wasted in my wishing well
I have thrown like stones to the sea
I have cast my lots, dropped my guard, searched aimlessly
For a faith to be faithful to me

Through another day, another trial, another chance to reconcile
To the One Who sees past all I see
And reaching out my weary hand, I pray that You'd understand
You're the only One Who's faithful to me

You're the only One Who's faithful to me.
