Changes for My Walk Monday

My Walk Monday

Okay ladies... I need a huge dose of forgiveness from you guys for my slacker attitude here!
Last time I posted for My Walk Monday was 11 weeks ago!!! One of my reasons for starting this was to get myself to continue a good steady walk with the Lord, well it has been nowhere near steady.

God gave me a verse of encouragement yesterday while going through an unspoken trial these past couple weeks, and I'd like to share it with you.
Genesis 15 : 1b "Do not fear, (Carolyn), I am a shield to you; Your reward shall be very great."
And He is no pitally shield either like the one on Braveheart (pictured below)... He is an BIG metal shield with spikes that is lightweight and perfect to deflect our enemy's flaming arrows.
I praise God that He is not only with me in battle, but He is my protection and shield... He will take the hits for me as long as I am faithful to pick Him up and stick Him out in front of me! :o) God is good.

Hi Carolyn! You’re so right. How can we pour out to others if our cup is empty!! I’ll be praying for you, my friend!!! Don’t forget to take mini breaks in between your cleaning. It is really hot today!!

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men. Col. 3:23

I appreciate your prayers too!!!!

I like that verse-I need to keep that written in my little notepad I carry around, to remember that He is my shield when things seem too hard to keep going!! thank you and I am glad your walk Monday is back!

Hi Carolyn,

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Thanks for hosting My Walk Monday. I am rather overwhelmed at the moment and will not be able to participate in My Walk Monday yet. But I enjoyed your post and am encouraged by it.

Thank God that He is our shield and our protector. Thank God for sustaining you in the difficult trial. You are in my prayers.

I thank God that He enables us to meet through blogging. I am thankful to God that I can meet you and many others through blogging. I am in the midst of listing out blogging friends that I like to share 2 awards with. I have included your blog as well. I like to share Share The Love Award and Friendship Award with you. Do come over and receive them when you have time. You can copy the images and paste them to your side bars or posts. And feel free to pass them to your blogging buddies. Take care and God bless you and family always!

With appreciation and prayers,
Nancie
