Putting On Our Armor



I said I wasn't going to post anything else this week, but this needs to be said. We (or at least I) seem to be fighting against some strong and evil forces recently. To which I say, Bring.It.On. My girl is in Ghana. I am coming for her. There is nothing more powerful than the love of a Mother (or Father) for a child. My Heavenly Father is on my side, so do not stand in our way!
I am reminded of the words in Ephesians Chapter 6:

"...Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God...
Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen."

For my LDS friends, the same message is in D&C 27.

Game on. Let's get ready to rumble.

You go, girl! Sometimes you need to just put your head down and plow forward, like you're ready to knock down anything that gets in your way. Look to the future, picture your BEAUTIFUL girl and the family that is about to be complete.

We're all praying Little Sister home!
