You Shoot Me Down, But I Won't Fall, I Am Titanium....Because Of Jesus.

Editors Note: This Was written Very Quickly. Unfortunately My Brain Can't Slow Down Enough Lately To Work In Synch With My Fingers.
   I Had One Of Those Very Sudden 'Epip
hanies' While Praying Today.
  See, It Was 15 Degrees And -3 Wind Chill Earlier This Afternoon. I'm Happy That I Took Heed And Went To The Store Earlier This Afternoon. Currently, It's 10 Degrees And -8 Wind Chill. But That Can Change By The Hour. As We've Seen In The Past.
   Seeing As I Have No Car, I Have To Make This Particular Trek To The Store Each Day. Rain Or Shine And 'Urban Forage' For Sustenance For My Family, LOL! But Today Was A Lot Less Exhausting As Other Days. It Was On My Walk Home That I Was Praying And Beseeching The Lord For A Friendly Ride, Or At Least His Strength To Carry Me Home. Why You Might Ask?
   I Was Carrying A Backpack Filled With Anywhere From 40-50 Pounds Of Consumables. And With Freezing Hands & Fingertips, Another 1-2 Bags.
   5-10 Pounds Each. And As I Struggled On This Journey, I Was Just Attempting To PrayAnd Trust Him To Get Me Back Home Safely One Step At A Time. And It Made Me Think Of How Our Servicemen Train. You Look At Only The Next Step, Yet Be Aware.
   My Father, A Col. And Veteran Of Both Army Service And A Long Air Force Career, Instilled In Us Both ( My Sister Included) A Drive That Went Beyond The Values Held Then, Versus Those That Seem To Be Held Round The World Today. An Ancient  Blessing Of a  'Stick-To-It-Ness'  Spirit. It Just Means In Your Heart That You Will Keep Trusting In Him, His Grace And Strength To Keep Putting That One Foot In Front Of The Other Every Day. Not Looking Behind, For That Road Hasn't Changed. Nor Looking Ahead, To Paths Not Seen Yet. Ignore All The Distractions And Stay Focused On The Next Step.
   By Our Salvation Through Jesus And The Acceptance Of His Sacrifice, We've Been Set Free. And We Can Raise Our Voices In This New Year..Finally. The Fire Suppressed Over Years Is Already Exploding Around The World. Just Check Out The News.
    I Hope I Have Learned This Through Out My Life  Now, And Only Because Of Jesus And His Love & Grace Throughout My Life Since I Was A Child. He Has Kept Me Alive For His Purposes. I'm Not Special. Don't Know Why He's Kept Me Alive After Multiple Hospitalizations, Injuries, stitches, MRI's, CT Scans And Specialists Pronouncing 'DOOM!' Over My Life.
   Yet, I Still Stand. Time And Again At Death's Door, He Has Said, "No. Not Yet." Like Many Now Reading This Message From Every Point Of The Globe. Learn To Just Step Out And Listen To Your Heart Everyday. With It Comes Peace And Awesome Miraculous Surprises. A Father Loves To Surprise His Children. don't You? Be Prepared....<3'n Jesus Always,k..
