I Need To Know This…

From the lips of infants and children you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. Psalm 8:2 Do you ever feel as if the enemy, the Devil himself, has a plot against you? Do you ever think that He is on your tale, bombarding you with conflict after … Continue reading

Now .. Where Did I Put My Passion?

This summer, the enemy made a solid effort around here … trying to steal from God’s people. Like a little girl fumbling around in the dark, trying to find her favorite Lovie, I fumbled in the dark many days. Running my hands across hardship and life stress. Patting along chaos and confusion. I knew it … Continue reading

A Spiritual Demolition Derby

For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. 2 Corinthians 10:3 I must remember this. I am in a battle. And the closer I get to the front lines, the more dangerous the fight. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh… 2 Corinthians … Continue reading

Fighting Over Nothing – 101

The van. Arguably, one of the most stressful places on the face of the earth. Confined space, three boys, a tired mama, unbalanced tires, a floor full of crushed Fruit Loops, torn interior and a whole lot of noise. Stress. So, in hopes to minimize further chaos, I rarely allow Ethan and Grant to sit … Continue reading

Roman soldiers were trained to lock shields in formation, creating an impenetrable defensive wall bristling with spear points. When shields were locked in place, they would march forward as a whole, advancing the enemy. They called it a Tortoise formation. Unstoppable. Stronger together than apart. In all circumstances, take up the shield of faith, with … Continue reading

Before I typed the first letter this morning, I just sat and stared at the blank page. A full cup of joe sitting to the left of the screen. My Bible open. My nail kit in view sitting behind the computer. (Yes, I sometimes paint my nails while I read my Bible and blog. Just … Continue reading

This blog is not about me…

Sometimes I have to regroup. What exactly am I doing with this blog? When the Lord stirred this blog in my heart, my prayer was to open up a piece of what God was teaching me to hopefully bless someone else. A place to grab a cup of joe and read some Bible. What a … Continue reading

Today I am more than O.K.

I’m surprised my cell phone didn’t explode in a Holy Fire yesterday morning. Seriously. I received this text from a friend in regards to my “Today I was not O.K.” post. How’s this for the best text ever… You first win spiritual victories in your mind. If you cave into feelings of fear and doubt, … Continue reading

Today I was not O.K.

One word….attack. Spiritual attack that is. You know, you’d think the enemy would get a little more creative. Maybe pick something new to come at me with. A new trick. But no. I am attacked in the same areas every stinkin’ time. And you would think I could see it comin’, be prepared or at … Continue reading

Gearing up

“…Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the … Continue reading
