His Lovingkindness, My Stronghold

The Lord’s Lovingkindness has carried me through every distress in my life. Being a Military Wife is an Honor and a Privilege. Military Lifestyle has it’s challenges and without the LORD in my life I would not be able to last a day walking in combat boots. I use that figurative of speech because I am constantly fighting in the battle grounds of my own mind. 

Philippians 4:6 says:
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

When anyone cries out to the LORD, He hears the cries and the pleads. I have learned to approach God’s Throne of Grace boldly, taking my anxious heart and mind to Him because He cares for all of us. As Military Wives we spend many nights apart from our husbands. My heart often feels empty and lonely. My thoughts at night sometimes torment me. But the GOD of the Universe says gently to all of us:  “cast all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you.” {1 Peter 5:7 }

When I take every tear, every fear, every hurt, all of my brokenness and emptiness to the LORD, O He sustains me and fills this broken vessel up over and over again.

1 John 4:18 tells us:
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”

I must admit at times I am tormented with fear and fear grips me. The thought of my dear husband falling out of love with me or finding fulfillment somewhere else. But the devil is a liar and the enemy has only come to kill, steal and destroy. Then God reminds me of the perfect love He pours so graciously in my heart. I refuse to believe the lies of the enemy, I refuse to let my emotions control me, I refuse to disrespect my husband because of the delusional thoughts that try to creep in my mind and steal my joy. I TRUST my LORD and SAVIOR because all of His ways are Prefect and True, He leads me beside quite waters, He Restores my Soul. I am made Complete and Whole in Him alone. God is more than enough. My storms in Life may seem so big at the time but that is when I’m reminded “in times of weakness I am made Strong.” He pours His Strength, Mercy and Grace into my soul, therefore my soul Rejoices in GOD my Savior. His Word is my Daily Bread, His Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. {Psalm 119:105}

LORD, Father GOD I thank You for Your Loving kindness, The GOD of Comfort, The Prince of Peace. Thank You for graciously pouring Your peace within my heart easing and casting away all my anxious thoughts. The emptiness that is within me, You fill me once more till my cup runs over enabling me to extend your Lovingkindness. LORD please keep my mind steadfast upon You. I need you every second, minute, hour all the days as long as I shall live. May I lay my life down and take up my cross daily and faithfully.

Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: {Psalm 103:2}
