So I’m not going to lie to you. Spiritual warfare exists. I have lived it for the past three days. Today the battle hit its peak and I was nearly overcome with the pressure. I couldn’t stop crying all day long, and I was saying things to people in a way that I never meant to say them. More than once today I shut the door to my bedroom and cried hard.
Then this afternoon, we left to lead a Bible Study. My partner was the one teaching this week, so all I had to do was welcome the people, take prayer requests and lead the song. This was our third Bible Study this week, so I had already heard the lesson a few times. However, the message hit me again in a new way.
As we were talking about being conquerors and valiant in our faith, God began to light the fire again in my heart. Suddenly I remembered that anything is possible with God. I remembered that I am His child and I am infinitely loved. Looking back through the last few days, God has shown me His mercy in small ways…like a little llama keychain given to me by a friend.
As I sat on my bed tonight eating Jello cups, I thought about all of God’s goodness and what an honor it is to be called by Him to serve in His Kingdom. My God is a God who saves, and He is stronger than any enemy. I choose to walk every day of this life in victory!
And you know what? God’s goodness is something worth proclaiming. So I will do it every chance I get.
