Soldier Sisters

“Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”
2nd Timothy 2:3, 4
So thankful for the opportunity to be able to share, with my
"Soldier Sisters" in Christ, of FBC, Bentonville, AR. They are beautiful both inside and out....they continue to exude the love of Christ, by loving others, and I am so thankful to know all of them, and know without doubt their love for me.
Satan's job is to still, kill, and destroy, but God is greater than that
and I know He wants what is best for me.  Since beginning this journey many times I have felt like I have been on public display, but I still say "yes".  Most of the times I am able to mask the way NMO, affects my mental capacity and the ability to convey what is in my head through my mouth, which is so frustrating.  I have done public speaking for various organization so I know when it doesn't go so well.  An example of the love the women of FBC is how they sat and tentively listen while I struggled to literally connect words that made sentences.
Sunday evening started  all of my reflections of just how far the Lord has bought me.  While taking the "Lord's Supper" I thought to myself He has bought me from a mighty long way.
Nancy was sitting next to me and I reached to get the cracker and realized that I would make a mess so I asked her to hand me a craker, from that moment I began to cry because there was a noticeable difference, I took the cracker with control and held it between my index, middle finger, and thumb until it was time to eat it. Glory!
I was trying to compare the Modern Soldier, with the Christian Soldier during my testimony the above is an example of what the results can be of the Soldier that keeps on keeping on in order to accomplish the mission matter the mission ...mine happens to be Living to Win this NMO fight, after all we know the end of the story.... God is Glorified!!!! 


  1. Kelly, and Bethany are prime examples of the "Soldier Sisters" I spoke of in an earlier post. Beautiful inside and out with the joy of serving the Lord seeping out of them. I want to Thank EVERYONE for your generousity, especially the overwhelming response since Bethany, and Kelly's post. To God be the Glory GREAT things He has done.
