pleasantly confused… and comfortably numb

In his book, This Present Darkness, author, Frank Peretti describes the forces of evil pervading the space around us, seemingly without our knowledge. 

We don’t like to think of the spirit world, but to be honest, I believe the verse that says,

Ephesians 6:12 New Living Translation (NLT)

12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

For me, this past week has been a dance with the spirit world unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.  I refuse to let Satan win – I hold to the scripture 1 John 4:4, “Greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world”

Some of you know that I’ve mentored

people in various ways. One of the things that I always stress to my mentees is the importance of memorizing scripture… the inerrant Word if God, so that when spiritual battles come, and they will, they can stand firm in The power of God.

Psalm 10 No harm will come to you. No sickness will come near your house.  11 He will put his angels in charge of you to protect you in all your ways. 12 They will carry you in their hands so that you never hit your foot against a rock.  13 You will step on lions and cobras. You will trample young lions and snakes.  14 Because you love me, I will rescue you. I will protect you because you know my name.  15 When you call to me, I will answer you. I will be with you when you are in trouble. I will save you and honor you.  16 I will satisfy you with a long life. I will show you how I will save you.

Be blessed today, my friends

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
