The Faith Builder

Today has been another one of those days where my faith has been put to the test. I've come up with a new name for it--Faith Buster! The enemy is determined to bust through my faith and send me running. He has been flinging arrows of doubt my way all day long, and frankly, I'm sick of it.
I have been praying a lot today that I will see His truth and grace and that I will be armored with God's armor. I have been praying that my feet will be firmly planted with the gospel of peace so that I do not fall over in the midst of this battle. To be firmly planted in the gospel of peace, I have to know the gospel, read the gospel, and live the gospel. Everyday, the story of Jesus, must be my story, confirming who I am, deep within me. Building me up, loving others, and restoring my faith. I have to reclaim all that the faith buster takes from me!
I am seeing that as I continue to dedicate my life to Jesus, and my husband has turned our business over to HIM, our life has become more and more challenging. The battle rages, our faith grows, and some days it feels busted. I feel tired right now as I come before the Throne daily and ask God what He wants of me next? Where does He want me to go next? What should I do? What is He going to do now? It's all up to Him at this point.
Jesus, Say That Again, the Faith Buster had his day today, but You are the Faith Builder and I need you so much! Be my strength, Jesus, and build me up!
