When I questioned her wording, she pointed out an essential truth. To "stand firm", one can’t be moving. God says to put on His armor and then wait: still, firm, and ready. With the truth of the situation and the truth of the Word of God in hand, I can stand still and confident, because I'm His child, and have been saved by and experienced His intervention. Historically, God always does the fighting on behalf of His people. He wants us to recognize His hand in our lives, and that it is Him who brings us through our battles. He brought Greg and me through the most difficult years of figuring out our marriage and specifically our physical relationship. And the change it created keeps us loving and enjoying one another in every area of our life and the work we do together.
Greg and I would also like to communicate something that we believe is significant. We trust, if it is important, God will bring it about as we stand still and watch Him work out the details. It has made a huge difference in our lives, and in the lives of a few others. It was the kind of difference that feels right. Like a good plan, from a good God. We know we can't communicate this alone. And trust that He'll show us through His people how to complete that which He's begun. Thanks for taking the time to read this blog, and for your continued interest and support.
