“Therefore, put on the full ARMOR of GOD
so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. 

Then after the BATTLE you will still be standing firm.
Stand your ground, 

By putting on the 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 you will be fully prepared. 

to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. 

Put on salvation as your HELMET,
and take the SWORD of the Spirit,
which is the Word of God.” 

Chapter 2
All Things for Good

Why would God let this happen to Erin, not just having to face getting home on her own the first time, missing her bus several times until it was dark, but also having to do it each time Adrian wanted to send her home alone? Erin knew God loved her, so why did He let this happen? Why do bad things happen?

Would you believe that what happened was all God’s plan? It’s true. God used this and every difficulty in Erin’s life for GOOD. God allowed this crisis to happen in order to prepare Erin for her future and even her children’s future. It’s the same with you!!

That night, as she lay in bed, Erin realized no one could be with her all the time. There was no one to guide or protect her or make her feel safe all the time. Erin knew her mother loved her, but her mother hadn’t understood her fear, and she couldn’t always be with her. 

Erin had lots of older siblings, but none could hold her hand to make her feel safe and not miss another bus. That night Erin longed for a brother, a mother, a father, a friend—Someone who would be with her all the time. Someone who would never forsake or abandon, or desert her. Someone who understood. Does this sound like Someone you would want to meet, Someone you would want to know?

Now, stop to relax, grab your coffee or cold beverage, and talk to the Lord, your Maker, and ask Him questions. Listen to what He's telling you in your heart. Then when He leads you—pour your heart into your journal, writing down what you've learned

Post your Praise 🥳

From GOD, Your Father!!
