I have been feeling a tad bit “off”.
Not down-trodden; just as something is not quite 100 percent.
And I, have this mind that thinks of a million things, some completely off the wall. These thoughts are come at me like arrows. And to top it off, as of late I have been plagued with arguments in my head of doubt.
And that leaves me with reciting 2 Corinthians 10:5 over and over again. And it works.
And then another one occurs and another.
At times it is torturous and man-oh-man, it leaves me tired.
During this particular rough patch, I feel distant from the LORD.
Some would call this an attack. I don’t like to use that term “an attack”. Not sure why.
And then, I read below an excerpt in the “Jesus Calling” devotional:
“I AM TRAINING YOU IN STEADINESS. Too many things interrupt your awareness of Me. I know that you live in a world of sight and sound, but you must not be a slave to those stimuli.”
I can have a million thought bubbles floating around and arrows of perceptions, ideas, concepts and observations coming my way - but!
Yep, there is a but! I am NOT a slave to none of it! I am the daughter of a KING! I am as strong as my allegiance to HIM.
Will I continue to fight against the thoughts?
Will I win?
Because I shall keep fighting with GOD at my side. GOD fights with me and for me. I am never alone! So this girl is gonna be #winning!
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
