Learning along the way

This is the second of my old journal entries it is from
Aug 28

I awoke under attack, my mind drifted into thoughts of being without Andrea. It had been a while since this has happened. But by God’s strength I overcame. It is a perfect morning, I’m sitting outside with Andrea and I know God is here. I see His handiwork all around me and it gives me peace to know I serve the creator. And it gives me peace as I read His word about His love for us and the clarity of His plan.

Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

Satan has no power over us, our life or our death. Jesus released us we are free indeed! And Christ who came to earth took the form of man, was tempted but did not sin; he can sympathize with our weakness
Hebrews 4:13-16

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

God you are our answer. At your throne do I seek answers. At your throne do I find all my needs met. God you provide all I need. I do not need to fear. I only need to hold on to your word, your son, my savior. By faith I hear your words to me. By faith you speak comfort in my time of need. By faith you bring me peace. By faith you bring us into your rest

Father thank you for loving us so much. Thank you for offering us salvation through your son’s suffering and death. I submit my life to you. I seek you in every way, in every day. I know you will be faithful and provide my strength. Help me to be faithful in my service to you. Search my soul and show me my sins that I might confess them to you and remove any barrio to my spiritual growth. There is no part of me or my life I do not want to give over to you. For you I want to live.
