I Almost Forgot

I almost forgot sister Lisa's invitation to have another story of mine be revealed through her LOAM postings...If you want to know more about me and this was something you didn't know about me, please head on over to Sister Lisa's...

I want to thank all of you for keeping me in your prayers. This week, as I pray for the Lord's leading and His perfect timing, it will be a time for me to stand up and defend myself...The battle is really big and in His perfect time, I will reveal what it was about as I'm not sure right now what the purpose is...I want to let you all know that I deeply appreciate your love, friendships, leaving me email addresses and those precious Scriptures that I will read now and strengthen me....I know I was never alone and to Him be the glory Who gives me everything I need including all of you in my life. I love all of you and know that we are truly One in Spirit. May all the glory be given to our Lord Jesus Christ....For now, as I soak in His power and might, please forgive me if I might not be able to visit you for a while. But when I come back, I will reveal all the victory in His precious, wonderful Name!!!!

May God bless all of you, protect you and may you remember always to be strong in His mighty power! To Him be the glory forever and ever in all ages to come.

"Those who love your instructions have great peace and do not stumble." -Psalm 119:165 [NLT]

  1. My dearest Rose..
    I read your story about leaving the Phillipians and going to live with your Uncle.
    What a huge sacrifice for all of you. You may think you got the better deal? But you left your homeland and there is much grief in doing that.
    I know you love you your parents and wish to repay all.
    As a parent of grown children I know that all your parents want is to know you are well. You are probably their inspiration of a better way of life. You can visit and that is something they can look forward to. You could also in time, have them migrate to live with you. That is what many people do in Australia.
    I pray for your load you are carrying.
    May it be lightened and may the Lord direct your path.. Proverbs 3:5.
    Much love Crystal

  2. Hi Rosel, glad you shared, erm... we have something in common, you were adopted, I was fostered, at least you know who your biological parents are. I'm very sure you'll find a way to re-unite with your family in the Philipines. May the Lord grant you strength and wisdom as you go through your present challenge at your work place. Take care. :)

  3. Rosel I read your story over at Lisa's blog. What a sad story with a beautiful ending. Hope I can read the rest of your story. Where is your uncle now, and how did you get out of his control?

    Blessings to you. I keep on praying for victory for you.

    Love

  4. I haven't been able to be on the internet lately, so I went back and read a couple of the posts prior to this one so I'd know more what was going on. I KNOW God's hand is on you and He IS working in your life and situations. I am praying for you my sister in Christ. I look forward to when you return here, to hearing about the great things God has done!

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]


Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.


Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.


All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.


When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.


The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.


When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himseld and ended up injuring his attacker severely.


[Source: Life Application Bible]:


We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.


“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14


Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].


Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.


Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.


Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
