Whew…Im Still Standing…

Good morning, Family:

First, I have missed you all so much. I thought about you every day that I have been away. A brief update on where I have been and what has been going on.

I’m almost at the finish line of my Master’s degree. Many of you know that I am working on obtaining my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Couseling from Liberty University. In this season of my life, I am fulfilling my internship requirements with an amazing counseling treatment facility. I am also maintaining my full-time job with an amazing company that I have worked with for the last twenty-one years.

A few weeks ago, I contracted the flu and it had me in complete shut-down mode for about two weeks. Thanks be to God, I am feeling much better. Any time there is a gap in our communication I am always so excited when God releases me to write to you againt. Please know that I thought about each of you and how excited I was in anticipation of reconnecting with you. Thank you for your patience and prayers.

One thing that blesses me so much is that God has always consistently and constantly been faithful in protecting and covering me. Even when the outcome was not what I wanted, or planned, I still always felt God’s presence around me. I guess it’s because I have learned, over the years, to truly trust God.

Trust is a two-way street. As with anyone else, trust takes time. What I have found is that as I have trusted God with different areas of my life my peace increases. I don’t stress out as much as I used to. I lay whatever my worry is at the feet of God and I leave it there….with no take-backs. I’m not sure who this message may be for but I encourage you to trust God and trust the process..

I leave you with the worship video for today entitled Im Still Standing by Bishop Paul Morton under the direction of Kirk Carr.

Ephesians 6:14-17

New International Version

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Be blessed family,

Rev. Marcia Davis
