Fear is paralyzing. It is something that I have dealt with all of my life and even though God has delivered me from so much fear, it’s still something I have to keep in check. My dad says all the time, “The enemy will not roll over and play dead when you are doing something of for God”. He’s right. We have the authority over fear through the blood of Jesus but the doesn’t mean the devil won’t keep trying to make you stumble.
Being in ministry was something I always knew I’d do. As a little girl, my dad was in ministry, so I grew up working in ministry. God placed a desire in my heart to work in ministry and I just had an inner feeling that I would grow up and marry a pastor.
My husband recently challenged me to read a Proverb a day. Proverbs is the wisdom book in the bible. We have been studying wisdom on Wednesday nights at our church. There is something so blunt about this book and I love that. It’s practical, profound and deep all at the same time. It cuts to the chase if you know what I mean.
