anchored.steadfast3anchored.steadfast3anchored in Jesus. HIS beloved bride. Give thanks HIS steadfast love endures...

 i love me a visual. tell me something and it might go in one ear and out the other. but a picture, i can understand that. they say it is worth 1000 words. agreed. 

after 41 years of failures and findings of my faith. Gods Word and His Spirit have etched truths deep in my soul. i breathe in the Word of God daily but even then

i still stumble and fall. my heart needed a visual testifying to the truths so that i can hold fast as i battle satan daily. life is war. i need all the help i can get.

truth all around me and the power of Jesus in me. you may not agree with tattoos, i respect that. i am in no way trying advocate or encourage rather just share

what led me to this place. 

i am a wife and mother of 6 it may strike some of you as odd or you may think "leah is having a mid-life crisis" well i can assure you i am not.

you see when i read Revelation 19.16 about Jesus returning on a white horse and "on HIS robe and on HIS thigh He has this name written: 

KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS." i get charged up about that visual, did you read that? JESUS has written on HIS thigh…not a sign above him like that on 

the cross mocking who he is but this time He is coming with His TRUE NAME etched on his thigh.

so my desire in the tattoos i have chosen is to declare truth.

the TRUTH about who Jesus says i am -- HIS "beloved". the bride of Christ and dually i am the beloved bride of Ryan Fry.  {Hosea 1-14 & Song of Songs 6.3}

the TRUTH of THE ANCHOR who gives me HOPE and it is found ONLY in  Jesus {Hebrews 6.19}.

the TRUTH that HIS "steadfast love endures"  and i desire to give Him thanks {Psalm 136}

my prayer is to overcome the battles satan wages in my mind with the visual reminders of TRUTH. 

anchored. steadfast. beloved.

I love these words. The power of God in you is so much greater than that which battles against you; Satan doesn't stand a chance. Much love.
