Waking up to another Monday. A new week. A fresh start.
So thankful to see the sun shining past the clouds. Thankful for the air I breathe. Thankful for work I love.
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” I Peter 5:8
Trying to get oriented to the busyness and stress of the week…the long to do list…the pile of laundry…the homework…the obligations…the doctor visits.
Trying to stand up against the anxiety…the fear…the overwhelm…the anger…the hurt…the apathy.
The devil trying to whisper that I’m inadequate…that I’m not strong enough…that I’m in over my head…that I should be afraid…that I’m all alone.
“Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.” I Peter 5:9
I’m alert. I’m praying. I’m singing. I’m standing up.
I’m worthy. I’m strong. I’m loved. I’m not alone.
I’ve got JESUS!
King of Kings! Lord of Lords! The Great I AM!
“And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm, and steadfast.” I Peter 5:10
Run Devil Run!
