Understand your "attacks"

Did you ever have a time in your life when maybe "the enemy" came after you? I personally don't like to give the devil too much credit but I don't ever doubt that there is one and he'd like to distract us. 

I happen to be in a time of preparation, learning, resting (for me), listening. And I feel like in the last week the enemy has tried to distract me. I could tell you stories, but I won't... Sometimes it's hurtful and sometimes it's amusing. I just think "I must be on the right track or he wouldn't be working hard to shove me off in front of the train.

So... In the past week, I've had a couple "things" come at me, things that would have been considered "big guns" in the past... But I know who I am! I know who God made me to be, I have learned that things that seem "like big guns" are only distractions, they are like water guns and so it's important to know what we are fighting against.  I just had to blow dry my super cute hair after that "attack" lol 

I thankful for the times that I rest and spend time with Jesus! 

And now I'm singing the jingle "on the right track to nine mile and Mack"

Eph 6:10-17 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 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. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
