When it rains it pours!
Well hello, friends,
Its been a while since I last posted and for good reasons. I feel like this last year everything concerning my life has been under attack by the devil. I am physically and emotionally drained from it all. Sometimes when you think life is going along all hunky dory.....then BAM! Life throws a curveball. Let me tell you all that we have had anything and everything that could go wrong with our vehicles you name, it happened. My car needed a whole new front end and new tires. My husband needed new tires. My sons truck is always needing something. And the clutch went out on the little commuter car we have. Sigh....... Not only did all that happen it all happened in the same month. I am having some physical problems which I won't go into. We have animals needing vet visits. Financial stress, Doctors bills to pay and not to mention just daily life. Not only am I emotionally spent but it is taking a toll on my relationships with my kids and husband. And now here we are with Thanksgiving and Christmas at my door. I am sure at this point you are thinking... Why am I telling you all this? I am telling you this because I feel there are far too many blogs that just like to post feel-good articles which is fine. But I am wanting to be real with you all about being a mom, wife and homeschooling parent. I have real problems that I face daily just like you. And I know that sometimes these things can really depress us and make us feel like our life just sucks. But I want you to know that you are not alone and when you just feel like crying in your pillow, by all means, go ahead. But know that doing that will not make your problems or the craziness of life go away. You, my friend, have to cry out to Jesus. Just as I do in my time of need. He is there to comfort and protect you and to give you peace in every aspect of your life.... in your marriage, homeschool, work, children, finances whatever you may be dealing with God can see you through. When all is bleak and dark and Satan tries to tell you that your worthless and no good remember that fear is a liar. Satan wants to seek and destroy! And he will do everything in his power to do so. But if we put on the whole armor of God we can fight against the Prince of Darkness and all his evil. Stand firm on the word of God and claim VICTORY over your life and everything in it. My friends now is the time to grab your Bible and Pray daily and rebuke Satan and Trust in God for he is the author and finisher of our lives. I will not stand by quietly and let my life and home and family crumble. Just as if an intruder where trying to break in and steal your children.... would you just sit there and let them? No, you would fight with all your might to save them.
Let us remember what the bible says about this.
Ephesians 6:12, KJV: "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
Make reading your bible and praying a daily priority in your life and see what God can do. I hope this encourages you to stand strong and let God has his way in your life. This is just what was on my heart today and I felt lead to share it. God Bless all of you.
