Hola from Janet Perez Eckles…Igniting Your Passion to Overcome

No landscape. No fancy doors. Not even a nice front. None of these are priorities for homes in La Paz, Bolivia. The wall you see in this picture is to guard the home. Every house has a protective barrier against thieves.

A house without this structure looks naked, vulnerable and defenseless. And no doubt, a tempting invitation to thieves lurking around. Sort of like you and I without God’s strength around us, without His firm grip and without His shelter.

And lacking the strong wall of His power that serves as our shield, bad news robs our peace. News about violence invades the stillness of our lives, and the uncertainty for tomorrow and worry steals our tranquility.

“But as for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him” (Psalm 18:30). Therefore, our soul declares: “Who is God? He is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold” (Psalm 18:2).

As we work on that next project or dream, discouragement might visit. But protected by God’s wall of security, we lift our head, embrace confidence and count on the divine outcome that He presents on the tray of His grace.
