|Official UN- Invite to my Pity Party! |
Please don't come, but I am accepting gifts of PRAYER!
I will not pretend it has been a good day. I will not lie or wear happy face mask.
Today has been one of those days where you know the enemy is working overtime.
By the time I realize his handiwork I have already walked
into a few of his discouragement traps!
Have you ever found yourself ill prepared for the day?
Ever get sucker punched by Satan?
Well this chick fights back!
I will not have a pity party. I will not give into guilt.
I will stand on the Rock,
I will trust and wait upon the Lord.
I will Armour UP!
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 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. 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,
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
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 saints.
Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

I'm Still Standing!
Oh, and guess what? I am giving thanks today in these YUCKY circumstances and am here to say-
even on my worst day I am still GRATEFUL to belong to the King of Kings!
He is faithful EVEN on the yucky days!
Special thank you to Cecelia at Following My King today for the sweet Bloggy award.
Pop on over and visit her site to check it out!
Wasn't God thoughtful to lay it on her heart to give me my first Blog award on a YUCKY day?
That disqualifies it somewhat from being a completely YUCKY day!
Is yucky an actual word?
Have an UN-YUCKY day Friends!
The joy of the Lord is our strength,
Armour up and Fight With Me!
