I had a random revelation today and decided I had to fulfill it. I want my blog to be about more than just physical health, and I haven’t talked about that a whole lot yet. I have a dream that my blog will become a place that women can come and talk, gather, and feel like they belong. So I’m going to try out Thoughtful Thursdays- where I write about what I’m learning or feeling that week and make a place where we can be honest and talk about our struggles. Sound good? Come on in 🙂
Lately, I have really been struggling with letting Satan drag me down when something good happens. Anyone else? I know I’m not the only one. It’s like whenever something good happens, Satan’s goal is to dig in deep and remind me of something bad that happened in the past or the possibility of something bad happening in the future. THIS IS SO POINTLESS AND TOXIC. I had this happen to me today. I was literally driving in the car and I was like NO SATAN. (Yes, I yelled this in my car.) I clinged to the name of Jesus and turned on my worship tunes. I was immediately in such a better place! Now, this does not always fix it that easily, and I still have doubts and struggles that hold on from time to time. I know that Jesus is for me and has such a bigger plan for me than anything Satan can throw at me. I have to remind myself of that constantly. And usually, the things that Satan is using to harm me are things that I have moved on from or dealt with. He’s just trying to do what he does best, bringing on the dark. The bible says that “A thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so that you may have life and have it to it’s fullest” John 10:10. Satan comes to kill our joy and destroy our lives. Christ came to give us life and create in us joy.
Please, do not let Satan use the past to darken what God is trying to brighten in the present and the future.
