Yesterday was the 7th day of the new year – 7 days in and I’ve already crashed and burned. So I am taking a break till Tuesday because I am tired and weary. I need to renew my strength and resolve for this fight called life. And life is a fight – otherwise we would not need the armor of God.
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
12 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.
13 Therefore put on the full armor of God,so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Four years ago today I signed up with WordPress and on 1/13 it will be 4 years that I published my first post. So there will be a brief anniversary post on Tuesday and then I will go away for awhile.
You will have a better chance of finding me over on my photography blog OgleOhio since no words are necessary there.
You are able to reach me by either completing the contact form at the bottom of this post or at michele dot kearns at joyreturns.com
Until such time as I see fit to return:
May the God of Hope fill you with all Joy and Peace as you trust in Him.
