Ephesians 6:11 - Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Good morning! It's been an "exciting" morning. From the time I woke up, which was exceptionally early due to early rising children, the enemy has been on the prowl! He's working extra hard at trying to make me feel defeated and unworthy. I can only conclude that the Lord's will is underway! YES! That's right ... on Sunday ... the Lord blessed us. We now have a flight leaving to Honduras this evening! We'll be arriving at 7:30pm their time, 9:30pm our time! God really provided for this one. In while we were sitting in debate ... another "miracle" happened and our tickets were purchased! Confirmation that we were definitely in His will for this trip.
Meanwhile, 2 major things happened in the last 2 days to both Naomi (my traveling buddy) and I that we HAD to be here for! It's AWESOME how God's timing is just right! We don't see it when we're going through things ... but it's true!!! His timing is JUST PERFECT! Thank you Lord for working all of this out. I know I would of not been right if I would of missed this calling ... but persevering through what seemed to be opposition turned out to be a means to strengthen me. At last minute all things pulled through! I'm SO grateful! I honestly don't like going through those ... but I know the outcome is best.
Right now, I'm on my way to finish packing and getting ready. Naomi will be here around 2pm or so and we'll be getting a ride to the airport. Now that our mini vacation is over ... we've been blessed and ready for the work of the Lord! PLEASE pray for us as we continue to get attacked here and there and that we may be in the Word daily, for safety and not harm, for me and dying to myself (really need this one) ... AND that we may be an example in love to each other (within our family/church family)to all the people there so we can be received and Jesus' Word can be understood in a tangible way. We all love you guys and thank you for your continued prayers ... We will pray for you when He brings you to our minds :D
In the meantime, here are the two links to the 2 long-term missionaries living in Peña Blanca, Honduras ... It's a great place to see the "going-ons" of where we'll be! Stay tuned amigos!!
Ephesians 6:12-20 - For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, [fn] against spiritual [hosts] of wickedness in the heavenly [places]. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints-- and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
