"Don't allow it"

     Hey my sweet followers! I would like to tell you a little about the last couple of days. Well first off I want to tell you as a christian we all have our moments and days. I would like to tell you not to let the enemy steal your peace. "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." (John 14:27) I would be an absolute wreck right now if it was not for the comfort of Jesus and prayers from my friends I would be a crying mess. The last couple days the enemy has tried to send me distractions. My brother was recently shot my heart dropped when I heard that news, and he is now fighting for his life. The circumstance of why it happened just filled my heart with so much worry "When I am afraid, I put my TRUST in you" (Psalm 56:3). That verse is so short but so sweet and comforting to me right now. I put my trust in God because I could sense I was letting worry come into the door of my heart. So then I told myself I should be happy my brother is alive and healing. When you let worry in distractions from the enemy will keep coming, because the next day my car breaks down, and I find out my nephew has broken his leg. I'm thankful the angels were protecting me when my car almost blew up. So for now it's undrivable until it gets fixed. But I'm thankful I'm alive because that could have been a bad situation. I want to tell you guys God sends his angels out to protect all of us, in every situation. He loves all of you unconditionally including I. "The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the spirit is life and peace" (Romans 8:6)
When our focus is on other people instead of God we do not get our freedom.  A reminder is to not hold onto thoughts that are not of God.
"Turn your burdens over to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will never let the righteous person stumble" (Psalm 55:22)

"All day long we praise our God. We give thank to you forever" (Psalm 44:8)

"Let go of your of your concerns! Then you will know that I am God. I rule the nations. I rule the earth. (Psalm 46:10)

Comforting verses to me right now. I hope you guys stay strong and know that God is real.
And to know the power of prayer is real is absolutely awesome. Dont give up, you prayer warriors.


I want to leave you guys with a couple songs that have been my strength lately.

With Love, Sarah Elizabeth.

"All things are possible through Christ who strengthens you" (Philippians 4:13)

"Be strong and courageous, nor discouraged, or dismayed for the Lord you God is with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9)

I'm so thankful for your presence this morning Jesus!!!!
