who were building the wall. Those who carried materials did their work with one hand and held a weapon in the other,
Nehemiah 4:17 NIV
Sometimes while in your purpose you have to guard and protect your position. Work by day and watch by night.
That's exactly how it went for the people rebuilding the wall in Jerusalem.
And if you've ever had to start over in life or make a change like I have, then you know it can bring opposition, attacks, and you have to stay alert.
Your change is a choice that everyone might not be ready for. Keep working and keep your weapon ready.
Happy New Year!
