Last week I realized all these battles being waged were not strictly flesh and blood but powers and principalities as well.  And I'm not not to proud to tell you in a weak moment I wimpered to Chris it was just too much.  I'd walk away from writing the Sirach Bible Study and Journal.  I'd walk away from blogging.  In that moment I'd walk away from anything I was doing that was putting me in the enemy's cross hairs. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Ever felt that way? 
Ever heard of a guy named Peter?  Or how about Jonah? ---------------------------------------------------------------------In the back of the Sirach Bible Study and Journal I thank you all.  I see you show up everyday when you'd rather hide. I see you get up when you'd rather stay down. I see you...and you encourage me to keep showing up too.  Thank you. ----------------------------------------------------------------- --We are down to just a couple of weeks--at most--before the Study is launched...catapulted from my heart to yours, meant to encourage and equip on those days when we make the choice to keep fighting the good fight. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Tonight, this picture, I realized I'm old enough to keep Vaseline and lotion by my bed for my dry heels.  It's all good.  The battles are real my friends--spiritual and physical.

  • melodyereynoldsOh how this speaks to my heart. I'm creating a bible study and it's been a bit too much for me. Attacks and testing and I was ready to give up. To take the easier road. Thank you for posting. 🙌🏻
  • thelittlestway@melodyereynolds prayers for you girl🙏
  • a_mommas_lifeI felt this way also as I was being attacked as well.. I am determined to keep fighting the good fight. Thank you for sharing it's by sharing we give strength to one another. 🙏🏽🙏🏽 Thank you our Lord Jesus Christ!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻
  • sistyciaPraying for you! Miss you each morning :)
  • 1derwomancindyI am feeling this way as my youngest who had come home to visit and her father are in a heated battle.
  • lynn_love_never_failsYes, the battles are real and I've been experiencing this too, only I didn't fully realize it was the spiritual realm until a few days ago. Why do I forget this and then have to be reminded again? I guess because I'm only human. I also felt the weight of it all and I complained also 😉 so don't feel alone in that! But today, Is a new day !
