"Satan is no gentleman for sure, he doesn't back off when we are hurting or when the unimaginable has happened to us - he came at me with everything he had with lie after lie...he tried to get me to believe that my life was over, that we wouldn't have happiness again, and that we shouldn't have other children. Thankfully, our great GOD pursued me even harder..."
How beautiful. He saves me. At the depth of my hopelessness, GOD shows up. He tells me He is here. In our home. Surrounding our family. How great is GOD's love. Pursue me, LORD. You will have the victory.
Another friend wrote, "With the passing of time our wounds heal but usually not before the scab gets knocked off several times!"
I had to smile when I read this because it describes my feelings so accurately. I feel "knocked" around sometimes, pounded on, more like run over. GOD is hurting with us. He picks up my pieces.
One of my precious roommates at Baylor sent me this powerful verse.
These two things cannot change: God cannot lie when He makes a promise, and He cannot lie when He makes an oath. These things encourage us who came to God for safety. They give us strength to hold on to the hope we have been given. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, sure and strong.
