Philippians 4:1 Therefore, my beloved and longed-for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved.
I am my beloved's! He came after me relentlessly. He fights for me. He found me. Now, Im to stand firmly planted in the Lord. Since Im His beloved, where else would I go? I honestly have battled a lot since being His beloved. As a christian, we all do. I often battle discouragement, though Ive experienced a full lifes share of comforts and encouragements. I often dont know how Im going to move deeper in the Lord yet He simply takes me step by step. Over the years, I have learned that this journey can be a grind, a battle of inches! Im going to hold my ground! Im going to stand firm in Gods word! Now that, I can do. When I cant do anyrhing but barely stand, I will stand firm until the Lord strengthens me to move forward.
