How sharp is your sword? Ephesians 6 is the familiar passage encouraging us to put on the whole armor of God: the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, shoes for your feet for the preparation of the Gospel of Peace, the shield of faith and the helmet of salvation. But do not forget your sword, which is the Word of God! You can put on the entire armor, but if you have no sword, you have nothing to do battle with. The Bible tells us that the Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword. It is only beneficial if we learn how to use this powerful weapon. How do we do that? By sharpening our swords daily as we study His Word, meditate on it and apply it to our lives. We are useless soldiers in the Army of God if we do not practice wielding our swords before the enemy. Let me ask you again. How sharp is your sword? Is it dull, tarnished and rusty?
Ask the Lord to show you ways to sharpen your sword, in order that you may fight gallantly in His Army!

"About you"? It is hard to declare any one thing or even a few things that would be of any interest to anyone! I love God. I know that I am His child, and I waver between being totally overwhelmed with His love, grace and mercy in my life, to being overwhelmed with how fast life is passing and how bad a job I have done at living this life He has given me. I often wonder if anyone else is out there walking around trying to act normal (which, if I may insert here, is really a relative term to everyone...what is normal?). About me? I am complicated! I love God with all my heart and want to serve Him with all my heart and want to do something important with all my heart and yet, this life I live everyday, doesn't seem to line up with that. More than anything - I want to be a published writer. I want to have the time to go to places that are surrounded by the sound of crashing waves and breezes and just listen. Or, to sit on a deck of some remote cabin and listen to the whisper of God's voice in the trees. I wonder.....I wonder if those moments will ever come?
