I have not blogged in a very long time. I have had some struggles that I needed to come to a place of peace concerning. There was someone in my life who was really critical of the fact that I blog. This was someone with whom I have close contact with and will continue to have close contact. She for a long time did not let up of her criticism of me. Finally there was some break through and I have had some healing to do. She and I do not agree on sharing what the Lord is doing in our lives-- that is supposed to be private according to her. I believe we grow from hearing each others struggles and victories. I decided to see what scripture had to say. A verse that has continued to come to me has been Revelation 12:11 "They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death."
I am not going to get into the deep theology or events of any part of the Book of Revelation. I am going to comment on the part of this verse the Lord seemed to highlight to me as I have prayed about the issue mentioned above. They overcame by the Blood of the Lamb and by The Word Of Their Testimony. Our testimony has power. When we speak about what the Lord has done, is doing, and what we struggle with there is power. The power to overcome whatever we are facing in life. So I will not continue to keep quiet. I will blog confidently and boldly. We need to share for not only ourselves but for others. If I am open about what the Lord has done or some struggle I have then there might be something I say the Lord uses to help someone else. We never know. So share what God is doing and has done because it has power to overcome whatever you are facing.
