Dear friends, this will just be a quick post, but an important one. I see God doing so much right now among several of my teenage girls and I see Him on the brink of doing really huge things. With that, spiritual warfare is expected and it is definitely present! I am writing to petition your prayers on my behalf as I am feeling kind of bombarded with stuff right now. My relationship with Jesus is going great and He has definitely been answering my prayer for Him to be my first love again and for me to desire above all else to be in His presence. My time in the Word has been wonderful and ministered to me so much! The discipleship group with the girls is fantastic and is helping to challenge and encourage me in many ways. So much good is going on! But at the same time, there is a lot burdening my heart right now. Many of the relationships I have here are being tested right now, even with a few of the girls. It seems like lately there has just been one conflict or misunderstanding after another. I have found myself questioning various aspects of my calling here lately, thoughts that are definitely not from God.
The sermon at church here on Sunday was extremely applicable to me right now as it referred to times of testing that the Lord will allow us to go through. Although difficult, they are necessary in our growing process. There are also times of spiritual attack from the enemy, in which times we must fervently pray to fight back. During either time, prayer is essential. Therefore, I am writing to petition your prayers with me through this current season and especially for Romans 8:28 to come to pass. God does work all things for good to those who love Him and have been called according to His purpse and I know He will bring much good out of this current season.
Thank you in advance for your prayers!
