A New Sword for My Bride was birthed over several years of journaling, writing poetry, prayers to Father God and a life struggling to be completely free in Christ. The opening prayer with the names of God became a catalyst for each chapter which then discuss an obstacle that keeps many Christians from fully being embraced by their Abba Father. Overcoming obstacles in one life’s journey has taught lessons to the author that will help others. The matching poetry in each chapter were written during that same season and the Scripture Bible lessons affirm that learning. Take a journey through some obstacles that may be holding you back from truly living your destiny in the Kingdom of God and embrace Biblical teaching on the way.
Judy’s prayer is that those who take this journey of faith, as she shares her own journey, will come to realize that they are chosen (John 15:16), precious & anointed (2 Cor. 6:18), redeemed for another Kingdom and don’t need to fit in here (Gal. 1:10). She prays that her readers would come to realize that it is never too late (Joel 2:12), that our King directs us (Isa. 48:17), we can gain an eternal perspective (2 Cor. 4:18), that we can listen to our King (John 10:27), we can pray with mountain moving power (John 14:13-14), can triumph through trials (James 1:3-4), and are forgiven forever (Psalm 86:5).
