Welcome to my Monday Blog, Everyone!!
Thanks so much for visiting me here each week! Feel free to leave a comment – I do love hearing from you all.
You know, sometimes when our paths get heavy-laden, dreary, and everyday seems like a rainy Monday coming down, do you ever consider quitting? You know, like, “I’m done here, it’s over, arrivederci, sayonara, maybe Tomorrow, Annie.”
Of course—we all have! Sometimes the dragon wins the battle, but not necessarily the war! I choose to believe that is the precise moment we realize what we’re made of. Are we cowards or courageous!? Which is it? None of us is immune to the dragon. He comes in many forms—to slay us, our hopes and our dreams.
Between you and me, I choose to fight that dragon till there’s no fight left in me, and there’s no one better to fight my battle for me than me. I know what ‘s at stake and how dear it is to me, and noone will fight harder for me than me!
Yep, I talk big, don’t I? Well, when one has faith, in a superior being—it sure makes Life’s challenges a whole lot easier to bear. Remember, David and Goliath? Goliath may as well have been a fire-breathing dragon to David; however, David rose to the occasion and with a small sling shot and a stone, David slew his dragon…literally…right then and there, without anyone’s help—just him and his devout faith.
David had no armor, no experience, no equipment, he was not battle tested, nor was he trained; however, the one thing he did have that Goliath also had was confidence. The huge difference though, was that David’s confidence was in his heavenly Father, God, and not in his own strength – just God in heaven.
“You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, And Your right hand upholds me; And Your gentleness makes me great. —Psalm 18:35
The story of David is only one of many, we have which tells us of the peace and happiness we can achieve in our daily lives as we live our gift of Life here on Earth. This depiction also shows us how scary Life can get sometimes, but more importantly, how our faith in our Heavenly Father can help us slay our dragons, regardless of the form in which they appear to us.
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” —Romans 8:28
“With man this is possible, but with God ALL things are possible.” – Matthew 19-26
What, quit? Never!!
This week, let’s all test our faith and put on our shields of salvation. Let’s allow God to work through us, as both His gentleness and strength makes us greater than we can imagine! Let’s all pray for one another as we know not the trials each other faces. Amen. Hallelujah!!
God is Good! God is Great!! Always!!!
I love you,
