Scripture Memories 5..."I will never leave you, nor forsake you."Scripture Memories 56 months ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
This is a common scripture and verse. A lot of people claim this as their life verse, and you see it plastered all over the place. Sometimes this very verse becomes so common place that we forget the depth of its meaning. I know I did...until these verses came alive to me in ways I never thought possible.
You see...and I say this boldly and without fear...if God did not exist, neither would I. Period. How many times have I left and forsaken God? Too many to count. I have given God the middle finger and told Him to stay out of my life time and time again. I have turned right around and walked away from Him. But then I end up in a place where I feel the darkness creeping in, the loneliness, the depression. Thoughts of suicide and murder haunt my dreams and waking hours. It is then that I begin to wonder...God, have You forsaken me? Then I remember that is was not GOD who forsook me...it was ME who forsook Him! I walked out first!
Scripture Memories 3"But the Lord is my defense; and my God is the Rock of refuge."Scripture Memories 36 months ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
How many times have I been forced to feel like I needed to defend myself, be it physically, emotionally, or spiritually? Sometimes I was given no other choice than to take matters into my own hands, and it led me into some deep trouble. Let me just say I'm blessed and so thankful that I do not have a criminal record...and I should. When I am forced into a corner and my fight or flee instincts kick in, the Holy Spirit is quick to intercede and remind me that He, God, is my defense. That when I feel like everything is being ripped out from under me, I can stand on HIM, and He will be my firm foundation. I can trust in His sure hand, for He defends me at every turn, against both human and demonic forces. I remind myself constantly that I no longer have to defend myself...its not my place to do so, for God vindicates me. His justice is always perfect; all I have to do is trust that He will take care of the problem

I was putting myself down

You kept saying: Jason, I forgive you
I kept asking: Lord Jesus, why do you?
I held my Bible open to the sky; or ceiling

Italy and Germany were once again training, as was the norm for most days of the week.

A cream-colored tabby cat swiftly crept through the forest. It was the beginning of new-leaf and the leaves were just beginning to appear. New plants started to grow and the water swiftly ran down the creek nearby.
The cat stopped and gazed at the night sky. The spirits of her ancestors shone down upon her, watching wistfully, and waiting for her next move.
"Oh, StarClan," the she-cat whispered to herself, hoping her ancestors could hear. "I know what we are doing is against your will, but, please…hear me and I will never meet him again."
The stars above only twinkled in reply.
The cat sighed and continued on her way. As she walked, she could feel kicks and squirms in her belly; her kits would be born soon. Soon, she came to a clearing at the edge of her territory and sat down, waiting for someone else to app
