Being One & Having One! (My 500th Post!)

My Family!

I woke up this morning thinking about how blessed I am to have two amazing little girls!  They have taught me so much about life and everyday seems to bring a new lesson and some greater understanding!  If God has blessed you with children, then He has blessed you with a very good thing.  Be sure to not take the very special gift for granted!

I love my children more than I can come up with words to explain.  Even when they are challenging (and that is most days – they are just like their Daddy!), I still love them and I am thankful for them!  I was thinking this morning about how God loves and protects His children.  God through His Word promises divine protection for His children!  I believe that God has His Angels encamped all around us.  I believe that these Angels are all around us to protect and keep us from danger and harm!

As a child of God, I know that I have and will have to go through the fire, but I have not and will not be burned!  I know that, while I find myself in the flood waters, they cannot overtake me!  I may walk through the valley of the shadow of death, but I do not and will not fear any evil, because I know that God – my loving Heavenly Father is with me!  He has promised me, that no weapon formed against me shall prosper!

Today I am praying for my children, that God will be their refuge and strength.  I am asking God to deliver them from their enemies and the traps that their enemies may set!  I pray that God’s truth will be a continual shield of protection upon their lives.  May they never fall prey to the schemes and traps of the evil one.  May they everyday of their lives walk in wisdom and discernment by hearing and responding to the voice of our Creator.  I pray that they will discover, understand and fulfill the plans and purposes that God has for them as they make a difference in this world by living lives that bring God glory!

God loves me, I love them and may we all together love Him back!
