My goal with this blog is to keep a journal type account of my walk with Christ, my children and my grandchildren. To share what wisdom I have been given and have learned. To share the occasional recipe, photograph, funny story and possibly a teary one. God's mercies are new every morning. We each get a fresh, clean slate each day. So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

In a battle?
Is anyone out there in a battle besides me? Is your armor shaky at best? Are you running scared? Are you standing there with your eyes closed tight and your just waiting for the hammer to fall or are you fighting, scratching and screaming your way through the mire? I just read the best list of advice on this matter and thought I would post it to help someone else. I know that the battle I am fighting is a hard one. Aren't they all?? But remember this....Satan is a liar. He is a liar, through and through. Not one speck of truth is in him.
Right this very minute there are some things you and I must cling and hold to as if our lives depended on it:
1. God loves us and He will not leave us. 2. This battle isn’t ours. The battle belongs to the Lord. Let Him fight for you. Save your emotional energy and use it to dig into His Word like never before. Our job is to be obedient to God. God’s job is winning this battle. 3. The battle might not be easy or short-lived, but victory will be there for those who trust God. 4. God is good even when the circumstances are darker than you ever imagined. God is good even when people are not. God is good even when things seem stinking hopeless. God is good and can be trusted when you feel suspicious of everyone and everything around you. 5. Lastly, God is good at being God. Don’t try to fix what He hasn’t assigned you to fix. Don’t try to manipulate or control or spend all your emotions trying to figure it out. Let Him be God. Free yourself from this impossible assignment.
