For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,
against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and
against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Last week I let Satan and his lies beat me up. He lied and I bought it hook, line, and sinker. I try to prepare myself for his attacks, knowing they are coming but I still somehow allow the noose to get tighter and tighter until I feel like I’m going to hang myself. I broke. For the first time ever, I let those thoughts take me to a pretty dark place.
I sought help and I am fighting back! At least each time he takes me down, the time gets shorter and shorter as to how long I stay there. I’m not staying in the pit. I will do what ever it takes to stay out of it for good.
I’m okay with what has happened. It keeps me humble and seeking the Lord. I’m not one to get real big on myself, I mean, I know who I am. If God works all things for good, then let Him work this for good! I’m game!
Without certain life experiences, we can’t help anyone else. When the flies disperse from the crap, there will be some gold nuggets left behind.
Are you struggling with depression or something else? I would love to be your prayer warrior! Leave a comment. It will NOT be published (I don’t auto publish comments due to their sensitive nature).
Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
