This is taken from a book entitled " Sword Scrapbook 2", it contains many clippings from the various issues of the Sword of the LORD newspaper. I hope you enjoy!
I will, like:
Paul - Forget those things which are behind and press forward.
David - Lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from which cometh my help.
Abraham - Trust fully in my God
Enoch - Walk in daily fellowship with my Heavenly Father.
Moses - Choose rather to suffer...than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season.
Daniel - Commune with my God at all times.
Job - Be patient under all circumstances.
Caleb & Joshua - Refuse to be discouraged because of the big crowds against me.
Joseph - Stay true under all temptations to lead me astray.
Gideon - Advance even though my friends be few.
Aaron & Hur - Uphold the hands of my spiritual leaders.
Isaiah - Consecrated myself to do God's work
Andrew - Strive to lead my brother into a closer walk with Christ.
John - Lean upon the bosom of the Master and imbibe of His Spirit.
Stephen - Manifest a forgiving spirit toward all who seek my hurt.
Timothy - Study the Word of God.
The Heavenly Host - Proclaim the message of peace on earth and good will to men.
Jesus - Overcome all earthly allurements by refusing to succumb to their enticement.
Realizing that I cannot hope to achieve these objectives by my own strength, I will rely upon Christ, for "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

I am just an ordinary girl who is loved by an extraordinary God and I seek to love others the same way. I love to bake, read, do puzzles, watch Hallmark movies, and go shopping with my mom! This blog was created as a place where I could share some thoughts that the Lord has shown me and to be an encouragement to others who desire to know Him in a deeper way. My prayer is to learn to sit still and trust God with my future.
