“…know the weight of your moment in history…” – Girls With Swords

Do you know that you have a divine purpose and have been chosen, equipped, armed and commissioned as a strategic part of this spiritual battle raging daily around us?

C.S. Lewis said: “There is no neutral ground in the universe; every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God, and counter-claimed by Satan.”

Too few recognize that they have been divinely placed in where they are and in the time that they are in for a reason. It is time for women to reach a recognition of position. As daughters of the King there is a measure of authority that you walk in. However, it is your choice as to the position that you take in this battle be it an unarmed civilian, victim, a prisoner of war, or a hero. There is no safe middle ground.

Lisa states that women taking hold of their identity is a crucial part to taking up their swords (the Word of God) with the power and authority that is delegated to them.

Riddled with profound truths  Girls With Swords is a must-read for women. It is all about recognition of position and recognition of who God is. 

You are a target. The attacks that you experience have much more to do with who you might be in the future than who you have been in the past. “…know the weight of your moment in history…” If you have ever wondered why you are here, what your purpose is, who you are or why you are in the circumstances that you are, this is the book to read. You have a divine purpose in your time at this very moment. Girls With Swords will open your eyes to the war, the weapons and the worth! I highly recommend it.

Other books by Lisa Bevere include:

Lioness Arising, Nurture, Fight Like a Girl, Kissed the Girls and Made them Cry, and The True Measure of a Women. These are just a few of her titles and each come highly recommended.

Lisa Bevere is a best-selling author, international speaker and co-host of The Messenger television program.

Waiting Past Midnight


Growing up, when it came to thinking about when my Mr. Knightly would come, I never thought it would be a fairy tale. Although I did not expect Cinderella, I seem to have subconsciously given myself a deadline in which He should be here by. Now, at 20 years old I find myself to be waiting past midnight.

I am nowhere near where I dreamed I would be at this age. Growing up, had you asked me, I would have said I’d be married at 18 and I expected by age 20 to have started a family. But here I am still waiting and dreaming and longing – although I rarely have time for that. For the longest time I believed that life really began at “I do”.

I was wrong.

I came across this quote by Elisabeth Elliot one day that really turned my way of thinking:

“Single life may be only a stage of a life’s journey, but even a stage is a gift. God may replace it with another gift, but the receiver accepts His gifts with thanksgiving.”

My singleness is a gift.

Yes, you read that right. My singleness is a gift. As much as a may dream about married life or where I thought I would be now, I am confident that I am right where God wants me. I am enjoying this single season in my life. It is a gift in such a way that I am free to do, be and act accordingly to that which I feel God calling me to.

In this stage, I am called to walk with God and let Him be all He is to me so that I can be all He called me to be. In this stage of life’s journey, being single allows me to serve and go places that I may not be able to as the same capacity when I am in another stage of life and my responsibility is my husband and family.

So while I sometimes feel like I am waiting past midnight, I recognize the gift that I have in this season and the beauty and blessings that are part of walking in it. I’m no Cinderella, and my life is not a fairy tale, but in this chapter of my life can say a lot about how my story goes.

Next chapter!

Are you waiting past midnight? How is your singleness a gift?
