"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
This verse from the New Testament book of Ephesians, chapter six, verses ten through twenty are a powerful reminder and encouragement to me. Shortly after I announced the release of my first book, Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey, a dear friend shared a tidbit many Christian authors aren't aware of.
Similar to you and others you know that desire to serve the Lord and do things that bring Him glory ~ satan doesn't want you to do this and he uses your weakest points against you. We are all gifted in different ways to serve God and we each have different aspects of our life that have the potential to keep us from serving God and fulfilling His purpose for our lives.
As the April 3, 2013 release date gets closer, it seems satan is working harder to keep me down ~ emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I have Good News though, I serve an Amazing and Powerful God who is bigger, stronger, and more determined than the one trying to keep me from finishing this journey to share Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey will all of you.
From today forward, I choose to give it all to God and let Him fight this fight because it is bigger and broader than I can ever defend on my own. With the Armor of God on, I look forward to the day you read my first book and pray you see how God worked in one sister's life after she lost her best friend and only sister, Heidi M. Allen.
"The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
