Claiming victory...

Isn't it crazy how you can start a day out with a beautiful, powerful, go get em' attitude and then by the afternoon have an ugly, defeatist attitude? That is how my day was today. I woke up with an amazing attitude. I was able to spend time in prayer and read my book that our FLOCK ladies are reading. I cleaned the kitchen and washed bottles all before 8:30! Then by the time 1:30 came around I was beat. Satan really started to get to me with my thoughts. I cried a lot this afternoon. I know part of it is because I was REALLY tired and didn't feel good. But I know that is just the foot in the door that Satan looks for. He sees that as an opportunity to get us down so we are not as useful in furthering the Kingdom of God.

No more my friends. Tonight I decided to claim victory over this. We know that in Christ we already have won the battle. I will no longer feel overwhelmed. I am going to make a schedule to help with that. I can't do to much about the tiredness, but will do my best to recognize the symptoms that go along with it so I can warn the people I am around. :)

Thank you Lord for giving me victory over these things in my life!

Amen! I love this post. Let's not let Satan get any footholds in our lives because we know the truth is that we are more than conquerers in Christ. I am so thankful to have friends like you to help keep me accountable and that we can encourage each other...

Love you, friend!
You are a blessing :)
