Memory Verse Monday!


Ephesians 6:10-18
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 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, to stand. 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 with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

This is a passage that I feel the Lord has been leading me to all week. Especially since my "New Year's" post. I was talking to my sister, Demetria last night, and she was saying how she was kinda surprised by my New Year's post , and didn't find that to be true about what she knew of me. I told her it's not something I project outwardly, as much as it's an internal struggle. It's something I need to work on in order to prepare a clean heart and find a new level of intimacy with the Lord. I know that now that I have admitted to myself that this is something I struggle with, the devil is going to find new and cleaver ways to try and discourage me, or lead me to stumble and fall. So, I need to protect myself, with the armor of God. I am also starting a prayer journal with my morning quiet time, and I will be praying daily for all my bloggy land friends by name. Those of you I know, as well as those of you I just enjoy reading everyday. If there are any of you that read my page, and would like to be added to the prayer list, please leave me a comment and introduce yourself. I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Blessings to all!
