This post is a little bit different. In the end, we always know that God always wins in a ‘fight’ in His own way; if He were a boxer. In this case, He made sure to help my spirit whenever it lost its way.
There I was walking through my home’s hallway when all of a sudden, my thoughts began to ramble on and on, making me feel powerless to control them and then “Bam”, I was hit with a scripture from God. In 1 Peter 2:11 (NIV), it reads, “Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul.”
Okay. I was minding my business again and received an unexpected call and text message from my ex. After ignoring his calls for days, his disrespect towards my mother blew me up. I finally told him off in my last text message to him and then “Bam”. I was hit again by God. In Proverbs 20:9 (NIV), it said, “Who can say, “I have kept my heart pure; I am clean and without sin?” I did remember the many lessons I had learned in bible study and church of how not one person was perfect, and the only one man that was perfect was Jesus himself before ascending to Heaven.
Now, back to me again. I am trying to change my meals for the sake of my health and my fight while battling my MS thing and “Bam”; God works nonstop. In Psalms 103:2-5 (NIV), it quotes, “Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
This was the last verse that I read afterwards for the day. In 1 Corinthians 15:56-57 (NIV), it reads, “The sting of death is sin, and the power of the sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
So when we tally it up, the Lord delivered 3 hits to my spirit, which was ironic of how much I continue to give praise to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Wow! 🙂
Stay strong everyone and we will chat again soon. 🙂
