Standing, part II

First, let me say thank you for the many kind comments passed along via the blog, facebook and given to me personally. I truly wasn't fishing for complements when I asked the question in my previous post. Still, you have reminded me how blessed I am to be surrounded by such an encouraging group of friends and family.

Now, what do I stand for?

The truth is, there are many things I stand for.

~I stand for children.
~I stand for family.
~I stand for education.
~I stand for the unborn.
~I stand for the oppressed.
~I stand for missions.
~I stand for justice.
~I stand for mercy.
~I stand for compassion.
~I stand for love.

But above all, I stand for truth. Absolute Truth. Yes, though it is an unpopular stance, I believe that there are absolute truths. And I stand on the conviction that they can be found in the unerring Word of God.

"Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes,
you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand."
Ephesians 6:13
