Last night Eric and I were laying in bed and I thought what in the world they are winning. Here are the TWO MOST COMPETIVE people in the whole world and we are letting the Devil and his evil agents win. We are so tired, so over selling our house, dealing with finances, and just being robbed of our joy. I leaned over to Eric who was already sound asleep and just smiled. Here laid “sexy scuba Steve” because he had already put on his sleep apnea mask, I nudged him and said, “Do you think they are laughing at us right now?” He removed the mask and said, “Who?” The demons… (now I am not trying to get real theological here) but there is a battle or war that is RAGING, the war has been won, but each day the battle continues! A battle for our hearts, minds, marriages, families, anything that tries to lie to us about the FACT that we belong to a MIGHTY GOD…His promises are true, and their lies are not!
We both started to laugh and said, yep they are laughing. I am no longing letting them win. They have messed with the wrong Southern Belle! I am still without my van (well at least for the next few hours) and I have just bathed in the WORD of the Almighty. Isn’t it funny how that ALWAYS seems to work, but at least for me it is often a “last resort”?
The LORD has put two Scriptures on my heart over the past few days so I thought some of you might find them uplifting as well!
The first is John 10:10 “The thief has come to steal, kill, and destroy; I have some so that you may have life, and have it to the full”
The second is Psalm 94:18-19 “When I said, “Help, I am slipping” your love, O Lord, supported me. When the anxiety was TOO GREAT within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul!
As I type we are waiting for our first written offer to be emailed over…. So keep praying! His ways are HIGHER than ours, right?
