was slowly walking forward on a path. There were all
kinds of strange looking wild animals circling and
hurling themselves at me. Some I recognized, some I

PONDER: HAVING DONE ALL STAND
warrior, how proud I AM of you. How faithful you are to
Me as you walk slowly through boot camp. Yes, it has
been a tough road, and one you would not like to repeat.
You have faced a great many obstacles and have learned
to keep your guard up. This has been a difficult season
for you, but I have been strengthening your spiritual
muscles. Through it all, you have learned to stand
valiantly. You may feel puny and whimpy at times, but
how precious your heart is to Me. I only see your
willingness and courage to keep moving forward and that
pleases Me so much. Smile now as I take a candid picture
of you. "Well done precious one!"
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may
be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done
all, to stand.
