Life in the Battle

Do you ever have those days when the devil sneaks up on you and says...

So, you think everything is hunkey dorey? Well...take this!


And don't forget about...THIS!

And here's a bill! Heh-heh-heh

Surprise! Here's another one! How's your God gonna take care of that??

And by the way...You stink at THAT!

And just look at your house...

And have you looked in the mirror lately? You need a new wrinkle cream!

Phhhhtttt!!! (I have no idea how to type a raspberry...) ; )

Yeaaaaah...that was how my day went.

But it's nice that when you know God, those attacks from the devil don't have to last long. We have so much ammo to fight back with. First of all, my little Ben coming up to me with hugs and sweet "I love you's" goes a long way in the blessing department. And Sarah running up to me calling, "Cuddle, Mommy!" is pretty good for the soul.

But most of all, my sweet heavenly Father never lets me stay down for long. Here is some of what I read in my devotional book this morning...

It's all right to be human.
Simply return your attention to Me.
Rejoice in My love for you which has no limits or conditions.
Whisper My Name in loving contentment, assured that I will never leave you nor forsake you.
My strength and power show themselves most effective in your weakness.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9--
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.
Take that, Satan.


  1. Oh Holly. I SO needed to hear that!!! The enemy has been riding me so much lately. I just might print your post off and put it where I can read it over and over!!

    Praying for you, friend!!!

  2. You go, girl! Win those battles!
    Thanks for the reminder.
