We have been having a great time here. Shopping, eating and watching movies with the family. Overall it’s great. However, sprinkled in between those times are weird images and thoughts. OK, so last night as I was in bed, I closed my eyes and saw horrible/evil faces pop up. Freaky. I opened my eyes up and asked Travis if that ever happened to him. “No” was his response. Great.
But, after some praying they went away. Now, I don’t mean for this to sound ‘preachy’ at all. I want to be understood that I respect you and your experiences. All I have to go off of are my experiences. So my beliefs are based off some of those. Well, those and the bible. Anyhoo, I was amazed that those scary (and they were freaky) faces was not some mask I saw early in the day or from a scary movie. They were faces I have never seen before but they were in my mind. How frustrating!
I know there is an enemy and that he will do everything in his power to hurt, confuse or scare me into thinking that I am nothing but a little skinny 5’4 girly girl who is afraid of Star Trek. (the Star Trek part is true- some of the older episodes. Hehe)
But what I DO know is that I am more than that. The best way I can compare it to is me with a different shadow. There’s me that you see and laugh with. But there is also my shadow-a part of me not easily seen. I know that I have a calling on my life to be a warrior for God and that it will touch and greatly encourage others around me.
And when I see those faces, I know it is an example of how scared I make the enemy.
A also have to admit that I have a love affair with being someone from Lord of the Rings. A fighter and one that brings devastation to my enemies. But no. I realized that I have a different calling than one I ‘romantically’ like. I feel I am called more to be a Sam. I cry every time I see his love and devotion to Frodo.
It is amazing to me the things that the enemy uses to discourage or frighten us – especially when we are entering into the minstry that God has called us to. The enemy must be afraid of you and rightly so. We're praying for you as you are preparing to go to Poland. Blessings, Gail
