Welcome Dear Friends!

I am honored that you stopped by! I pray you will be encouraged and blessed. I believe when we share our heartaches and victories, our faith is strengthened. Knowing God is with us, and our steps are ordered by Him, gives us hope for the future!

Warfare!

Photobucket
Ephesians 6:13 (The Message)

13-18. Be prepared. You're up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it's all over but the shouting you'll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You'll need them throughout your life. God's Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other's spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.


I have been involved in such a battle! For the past week, sleep has not been easy! I am not sure what all is going on, some of it is a cold I am dealing with, but much of it is spiritual warfare. Fear has been a mainstay in my life from the time of being a little girl. My sister and I had polio when we were children, and there is a lot I don't remember, so I have always attributed that fear was from that. Now I know what the Bible tells me about fear. 2 Timothy 1:7" For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind"
So what is the problem, why do I still have fear? Because the battle we fight is in our mind, the enemy will come at us continually. Now what I do with it is of course up to me! There is still more going on here though, family and friends that I have been "fighting" for. As the scripture states again we can't handle this on our own, it is to big, we must have God, we must read the Word and keep praying. I am not going to give up and when it is all over but the shouting, I will be standing on my feet! Please pray for me, I always pray for everyone that reads my blog. The main purpose is to encourage people, but it is also to share my heart. We all have problems and we must pray for each other. God Bless you, my sweet friends!

Shirley - I will pray for you. Galatians 6:2 tells us to bear one another's burdens.

Thank you for visiting my blog today - 2 Timothy 1:7 is a wonderful verse. I wrote about fear for Spiritual Sundays this past week - God's word tells us not to fear, but I too struggle with fear from time to time.

Blessings,

Joan
