Conviction: a fixed or firm belief.
This weekend, I realized that I am in the lion's den.
I am being tested.
Daniel has officially been gone for one week.
One week. Seven days.
It feels like a lifetime.
I know it will be over in the blink of an eye,
but each night as I close my eyes to sleep,
I think about him being all alone down in Texas.
I pray for his heart and this journey he is on.
I thank God that he's not overseas, and that we are able to keep in contact.
I'm so thankful.
But I'm still being tested.
My convictions are being tested.
My power of prayer.
My faithfulness and committment.
all of it—
is making me a better person.
A better Christian.
A better soon-to-be-wife.
A better friend.
A better disciple.
A better example of peace.
Peace of mind. Peace of heart. Peace in Him.
THIS is the lion's den.
THIS is a test.
And THIS is something that I... we... will overcome.
"...For He is the living God, and He will endure forever. His kingdom will never be destroyed and His rule will never end. He rescues and saves his people: He performs miraculous signs and wonders in the heavens and on earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions." - Daniel 6:26-27
