Redeemed & Restored – God Gave Me Back My Voice
I could hardly wait to share this part of my story … when God gave me back my voice! Believe me when I say, whatever God loves, Satan hates. God loves it when you speak up about His saving power, but the enemy will do everything He can to destroy your voice and silence you. He will work hard to wear you out, ruin your testimony, and push you to despair, so that you feel utterly worthless to speak on God’s behalf … we must not listen to His lies! There is power in the word of your testimony! Revelation 12:11 says that we overcome him (our enemy) by the blood of the lamb, by the word of our testimony, and not loving our lives unto death.” There is POWER in the story He has given YOU to proclaim!
Welcome, I'm Athena!
I start each day by tithing the first hour to the Lord in prayer, reading the word, doing word studies of the Text, and asking God how I can live out what I am reading. This time is usually met with meditation on devotionals that are usually written by dead guys like Oswald Chambers, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, AW Tozer, and Andrew Murray.
Right now, I’m reading a daily devotional with a friend called Tozer on the Almighty God for my focus for the day. It's fun to see individually what pulls us in to spur one another on to good deeds!
The Bible is filled with action steps to walk out in practical and intentional ways. This sets my day in motion to walk it out! I hope this is your heart, too.
Consider this a personal invitation to join me in this journey!
