Spiritual Warfare

A week ago Sunday I made a fresh commitment to the Lord. I committed to put Him first, our money, my time….everything. It’s been harder than I thought it would be. I/we haven’t tithed in six months. I was angry with God and the situation He allowed to come upon us. Part of me wishes I hadn’t made that new commitment as I am stressin’ like crazy. I keep giving each commitment back to the Lord, but keep taking it back.

Yesterday I had to make a quick run to the doctor. I got pink eye! This morning, I wake up with red splotches of rash and itching. Wednesday morning, Chris and I took Kaitlyn and Christopher on a walk…the kids were going nuts and Kayla had a friend spending the night, so our attempt was to get the kids out so they could sleep. We went through a dirt road/trail and ended up walking all through the woods. We had a good time. Along the way I noticed several patches of a vine. I panicked. I thought it looked like Poison Oak. My concern was quickly tossed aside, as I am know to worry about things. I guess I should have taken my own advice to my kids to wear tennis shoes. I’m the only one that has broken out.

I believe there is a spiritual battle over me and my family right now. One I can’t see…. fortunately, I know who wins; or I’d be more discouraged than I am!

Spend time reflecting today, on what this day means…. Good Friday….. Jesus was born, in order to die, be raised again, in order for us to live! Hallelujah!

  1. Oh, Stacey– I do believe that God is with you and that his plans are to comfort and provide. Stay centered in the Lord and focused on HIM. I personally don’t have all the answers but HE does!
