Today I've been fighting the battle of depression with not working, a steady rain, darkness all around with the rain, out of sick days so no pay. Isn't it amazing how quickly you can be overcome with sadness when circumstances come together like this? For me this is a constant battle to keep Christ front and center and Satan no where near where he can whisper in my ear any suggestions or ideas he has to make my moment more upsetting.
I know I need to get back to my Bible reading and my Sunday School reading and book study. I need to ask God to again help me get back to these. I know it's not something that has to wait for me to be ready to do it or to feel like doing it, I just have to do it!
I pray that you will be on board praying for me to begin again to battle Satan and his horrible ways so that I can grow closer to God again and leave this darkness behind.
Tonight I asked Ben to go with me shopping. It's just what I needed, to get out of the house. It was later than usual but it also gave me some 1-1 time with my young man. I can't call him a boy anymore, he's taller than I am, has a deep voice and hair on his legs............when did all of this happen? He even started shaving!! That's probably the last thing a mama sees which confirms her little boy has disappeared.
Anyway having him with me encouraged me. Sometimes I get them candy and tonight we hit the dollar aisle and got something for each of us and something for Tim who was fixing the ugly viruses that attacked my computer today.
Tonight I did stamp a card for the SCS color challenge. Here it is. The colors were Rose Red, Going Gray, Daffodil Delight and a color of your choice. I chose Pear Pizzaz for the stem of the flower. I like the pearls in the middle.
I can't do it at work so I will have to get creative as to how I do it. How do you show Christ is in you?
Do you act differently than others? Let your light shine for God. Let others know there IS something different about you.
There should be a packed house in heaven when we get there. There should be people we know because we shared Christ with them.
Here's a video that has encouraged me more times than I can count. See what you think.
Tough subject today I know, but sometimes it's not all sunshine and sunflowers. We have to help each other through the muddy, rainy days. We all have them and it's easier to get through them knowing we all share them at one time or another. Isn't it wonderful though that God brings us through these times? He knows just what to do for us. We just have to ask.................sometimes that's hard isn't it?
Hugs and Blessings to you for hanging in there tonight.
