Australia Ministry Trip (Sept 26-November 10, 2017)
From September 26 to November 10, 2017, my husband, daughter and I will be on a ministry trip in Australia and New Zealand. The places we will be visiting are shown on the map above - along with the dates in which we'll be in these places (and what we'll be doing while there). Please keep this ministry trip and all of us in your prayers! Blogs will appear daily throughout this time, as I have written them and scheduled them in advance. I welcome your comments - and enjoy them! Just know I will not have Internet access for much of this time. So, I will look forward to reading your responses upon my return. Thank you for your understanding! And please keep reading to complete the "Reading the Bible in a Year" challenge and blessing! I am very grateful to Claire for her faithful blog comments (please everyone - join her in sharing each day as a discussion blesses everyone so much more!) And I am thankful that Claire has graciously agreed to add a bit more into her daily comments during my time of absence. Please direct special comments or questions which require immediate responses to her (on this blog). Blessings as you continue your journey through God's Word this year!

Proverbs 24:10

Scripture Doodle: Proverbs 24:10

One of the things I enjoy doing in my spare time is illustrating Scriptures on the side panel of my Bible. Doing this helps me memorize Scripture and is a fun way to find Spiritual encouragement. This week, just for fun, I will share some of my Scripture doodles from my Bible. I hope you enjoy them.

The first one I will share is Proverbs 24:10. This Scripture is a powerful Spiritual Warfare principle. It means that you have to develop spiritual strength day-by-day. Only then, will you have the strength you need to face a major test. 

If you prepare ahead of time, developing your relationship with God and deepening your understanding of His Word - DAILY, you will be strong (in Him) and better equipped to face the bigger trials and tests along life's way.

This Scripture encourages us to develop spiritual strength in much the same way a warrior develops physical fighting skills. Because the warrior has practiced and prepared - training for battle ahead of time - the warrior will be ready when a real battle comes. 

However, if someone decided to run into battle without any training or preparation, he might be in danger of "fainting" in the day of adversity.

Spiritual warfare principle from this first Scripture Doodle: A good Spiritual Warrior will develop Spiritual Strength through taking time with God daily.
