OK, so here I am… on a Monday morning, well, it’s actually arv now, but oh well. I am severely battle weary today. Growing in the Lord comes with it’s struggles, but I am certain of two things…. One, He won’t take me to it if he can’t take me through it… and Two, with all struggles comes learning and growth.
Philippians 4:13. I can do all things through HIM that strengthens me.
At times, I am extremely happy with where I am in my walk with the Lord… at other times, not so much. My prayer life is good…. I am in almost constant communication with Him, which I love, but…. I’m not always great at setting aside quality prayer time.. uninterrupted etc. It is something I really must work on more diligently.
I loved a slogan I saw yest which said “Live in such a way that if anyone was to speak badly of you, no-one would believe it”
I so want to live like that and to some degree, I think I achieve it…. but then there are the times that I slip back into ‘sinful human’ mode… and I react to hurts from others in ways that would not be pleasing to the Lord. Yet another thing to work on.
I am in such an extremely strange season at the mo….. I have such wonderful friends that surround me, but at times I feel the most overwhelming loneliness. It is not logical, as I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am not alone. Attacks?? I’m not sure, as I don’t like to give the enemy more credit than he deserves.
I am grateful though for a loving family… my own little one, and my original 5 (+ spouses). Not everyone is so blessed !!
I will continue to grow and walk in the Lord !
See you next time peeps !!!
