Tell Me about Your Shield

As we live out this last week before Christmas, here’s something to ponder: What has scuffed the inside of your shield of faith?

I say “the inside” because this is the part that’s facing us as we hold up our shield of faith against the evil one.

Different things have affected us and done a number on us throughout our lives. I strongly urge each one of us to take it to the Lord, throw it on Him – Cast all your anxieties/cares on the Lord for He cares for you   (1 Peter 5:7).

Take a Calgon Moment in this Truth again: Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take up the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints (Eph 6:10-18, NIV).

MERRY CHRISTMAS and God’s blessings to you!

    Dear Patti,
    I know you don’t now me personally, but I am sure you remember me being in Jville High with your brother Scott. Anyway, I had moved to Kansas City,MO. in 2001. My parents had called me and told me about your horrible accident, but I never knew the after math and the tragic recovery you indured afterwards. We new the girl that lost her life my oldest daughter Amber played soccer with her , I also talked with your mom often when my mother and I went into the Melonseed to shop.
    Anyway as I was on facebook and saw your face on Scott’s friends, I click on and I saw where , you had your on website. Well, I was just stunned for a moment, and as I sit here in my bedroom and read and watched all the videos on your life and the wreck and your AMAZING testimonies , you have given. Your story has had a very BIG impact and changed my life, what an AMAZING GOD WE HAVE. You are truly a living an example of just how POWERFUL OUR GOD IS.
    As I sit here this morning, and read and watch you talk to several different people, I felt lead to write you and just let you know how you have touched my life. Praise GOD for people like you, to take the step and to spread the word of GOD and what he has brought you through. I will be in prayer with you each and everyday, and your pics are wonderful , by looking at you, you would have known you had went thru what you did.
    I also have a 14 yr daughter that watched your video and cried for a very long time just because it showed her that when we believe in GOD than he does show proof of how strong his power is with us.

    I just want to close with this May GOD be with you each and everyday where you go and may lives be touched like you have touched mind and my daughters to others. You are a Beautiful young lady , I am THANKFUL THAT I was able to view your story, and continue to do what GOD has in stored for you.
    WITH LOVE,

    Melissa
