Securing your cargo
Security - The state or feeling of being safe and protected against loss, attack, or harm; the assurance that something of value will not be taken away.
Isn’t it funny how an attack can make you more aware and alert? It makes you want to be more protective of the unborn baby that you're carrying, providing nourishment and keeping safe so that it will be healthy and vibrant when it is born.
You may be working hard on the purpose that God has called you to do and just like a pregnant woman, you can become frustrated when it isn’t moving as fast as you would like. You find yourself anxious, overwhelmed and restless. It seems like you have been waiting for so long.
Then out of nowhere you are attacked or robbed and it makes you realize how much God and the enemy is moving in the midst of the discouragement. God kept it in place for a reason. The time wasn’t right as the baby is still growing and is vulnerable and needs more security and protection.
My blog was recently hacked into by someone all the way from Vietnam. I was shocked because I thought I had a pretty strong security. When you are working hard on making something come to fruition and you are attacked, that just further validates your mission. A bank robber typically doesn’t rob a bank with an empty vault, just as Satan doesn’t attack a ministry that doesn’t have the ability to spread the gospel to the masses in a society where sex sells. I find it disturbing that pornography, relationship advice and celebrity gossip sites get 20 million times the webhits than the ministry so naturally it can be very frustrating but to know that the blog was hacked by the same target that I am battling really put things in perspective.
My cargo is precious and I must carry it full term to keep it safe from harm.
Although this was a small inconvenience to me, the attack actually made me stronger. It has made me take a deep breath and wait on God to let me know when this baby is ready to see the world. This isn’t my ministry, it’s His ministry. God knows that I have more things to get in order so He will help mold me and shape me into the mother that He needs me to be to this ministry and until then I need to be patient and be on guard against attacks. I expect a lot of pain in birthing this child, but the miracle that it will produce in the end will make me forget all about the waiting and pain and focus on the blessing.
Be careful who you seek to gain understanding or advice from such as those marketing themselves as advice experts.
I write for broken women like me to encourage them to seek answers through CHRIST, not advice.

Be blessed this week!
