In the Face of Mercy

I am a “mercy” girl.  My heart goes out to those who struggle with many different things mostly the things I too have struggled with.  I yearn to speak Truth in love to those the Lord puts in my path.  And I have been blessed with many godly women who have spoken Truth into my life.  But God has a wonderful sense of humor in who He brings me.  He brings me strong women of God with what I like to call “in your face mercy”.  See all my prayer partners and dearest friends will tell me like it is, no sugar coating just the hard plain facts!!  I guess He knew in order to get through my stubbornness they would have to say it plain and sometimes much more bluntly than I like it.  However each and every time one of my friends has done this it has been for my good!!  My most recent conversation had me rolling after I picked myself back up!  As I was describing my lack of faith and dismal spiritual state I got a text that said “Hmmm, I let you move out of state and you start growing bugs in your brain!  You USED to think this way… “danger, danger turn back Will Robinson”…” As soon as I read this I knew she was right, I had let the enemy creep back into my thoughts and build a big ole nest there!!  God had already given me victory in this area and I just got tired of standing firm so I laid down and gave up the ‘land’ God already won for me!!  It was up to me then to take captive my thoughts unto the obedience of Christ.

2 Corinthians 10: 5.  We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,  I thank God for all the godly women who have taken the opportunity to speak the truth to me even when it hurts for each and every time it was for my good and God’s glory.”

Proverbs 27: 6 “Faithful are the wounds of a friend, profuse are the kisses of an enemy.” NASB
