Growing Roots

So much has happened, where do I begin? 
God and I have been on a journey that has escalated the last couple of months. This has been a fascinating ride for me. 
I've known for so long that He has been creating ways for me to have deeper roots. This, is not always pleasant. He has also been repeating the words to my heart to "Rise Up" and I've been praying  about that for sometime now. 
This brings me to my devotional blog and website This site has been an adventure for God and I together and a step of faith for me. It's been my "Rise Up"
As I've stepped forward I've had to fight against many of the enemies weapons. I've spent hours praying to God for courage and strength. 
Some of the weapons used against me have been:

This is God's promise: "No weapon forged against you will prevail" Isaiah 54:17 
With prayer, I have found that He raises me up and deeply roots me in Him. When I really begin to feel that internal battle, and I do, I ask a friend or two to pray for me, and fight with me. My courage and strength returns, in time. 
"God's Word is an indispensable weapon" Ephesians 6:17
  What are the weapons forged against you?  
We all have our battles, and our root system. Each one of us will Rise Up in some way, and the enemy is working hard to push us down.  Know the weapons used against you, and perfect the use of the weapons given you. 
Say That again!
