Put on the full amour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
I couldn’t sleep after hearing such tragic news.
My heart was also pounding because I sensed God doing something in me, though I had no idea what it was. There was a strong prompting to read my personal emails, so while Bren went to sleep, I switched on my phone and scrolled down to the next email I was to read.
Side-note: I have many devotional emails in my inbox that are unread simply because I can’t keep up with the sheer amount that I’ve subscribed to, haha. I don’t delete them unless I’ve read them, as I really benefit from those devotionals! So when I do decide to read them, it is usually one that is from long ago!
It is amazing how God works.
The email title was what caught my attention immediately – Today is the day to go after your dreams, by Holley Gerth. Even before I clicked to read the devotional article, my heart was already pouring out to the Lord, saying, “You know me, You know my dream. It is simply to be a Mum, and to stay home to care for my children. How do you want me to go after such a dream? It seems so out of my reach…”
And as if everything fell into place suddenly, a surge of courage just welled up within me to make the decision of faith that I would have to hold on to alone for a long period of time.
A decision of faith that only God knew was out of obedience to Him, but no one could understand my reason for such a decision yet – I knew I had to leave my job.
