If there is nothing else left to do, just STAND!.

Ephesians 6:13

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

My God! that verse hit me good when I was homeless and out in the streets.

I wrote about that ordeal where I didn’t have anywhere else to go or anything to do but just stand. How I saw the miracle happening right before my eyes!

God showed up in time.

To stand means just that.

To stand!

That’s faith right there.

I have stood on many occasions in my life. But this one when I was on the streets was the test of tests..man!

To stand meant that I had to exercise all the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit working in me and wear my armor. Not start crying and giving in. Imagine facing a lion and going about your business like there was nothing. That was how I wanted to stand. God was happy

I didn’t want to think poor me as I was out and hungry in the streets. A child of God is not poor. I didn’t even look desperate. I wasn’t begging or crying to mortals. Never. My heart only cried to God and my spirit groaned deeply within, until a person called out of nowhere and I was taken out of there streets. You can read my story here.

To really stand for something, one must make difficult decisions, mostly about what you won’t do. What I was not gonna do is to let fear paralyze me. Fear of whether people will judge me or how I was gonna get out of that situation.

I know that it was my standing and grace of God that moved heavens such that someone called out of nowhere saying she couldn’t help thinking about me.

I remember how shocked she was when she found me in the streets. She knew me so she was shocked that I was on the streets so asked me what I had been doing before she called me wondering what someone would be doing, I told her just that



I am so proud I am still celebrating my victory and miracle and will be doing that for a very long long long long time. What a testimony.
