Yes, the weapons will form, but they won't prosper.

I am reminded of the scripture hope deferred makes the heart sick. But the longing fulfilled is like a tree of life! This morning I am deciding not to allow my hope to be deferred. I will not allow my hope to be determined by the manifestations of His promises. But rather my hope rest in the promise being fulfilled!
Each day that we patiently wait is not a day that we are determined as hopeless, but more that we are redefined as a believer!

Very importantly noted, at the bottom of this picture you will see the stage lighting! I took this picture with my cell phone. This means that I was in the congregation. Being fed!
Leaders must routinely and intentionally plan and take a seat at the table to be fed as well. As my pastor has taught, I refuse to be the starving Baker!

These last few days, I learned when you have something really big and major in front of you, you still have to wait for the clarity and directives so that your execution can be impactful and intentional. As a doer, it can be tasking to force myself to be physically idle. The comforting forehead stroking comes in the realization that I am actually allowing mental stimulation to at an intensified rate. I can not allow my anxiety of deadlines approaching to quench the needed meditation time.
The last few days have truly been peaceful, even though my time clock tick-eth! And tick away it does. But I know that things will work out well. The things and activities that are supposed to occur... will. I have peace.

It feels like I woke up this morning and its just my day to testify or something. My first name, Shauna, means "God is gracious". Along with this scripture and knowing that His grace is sufficient or that His grace is enough, whichever translation I need for the moment, this helps me to know, for the theme of my entire life that I don't have to be "strong" enough. For my entire life, I have been named that I will need Him to be my strength and Source of grace .
When we get to my eulogy, it will be lined with examples of me depending on the grace of God and I'm alright with that. I'm so glad that I found out in my earlier part of my life what my name meant and what my purpose will be based on so that I wouldn't go against it my entire life.
What does your name mean? How is your purpose tied into what you have been named? Just a thought I had to share with you.
