I’ve learned that whenever I try to
post for “The Silver Lining,” that something bad seems to happen to try and discourage me…just like it did tonight. Honestly, it makes me want to see red!
I realize that it’s because the devil hates what I am doing to share God’s truth, and help people find freedom in Christ. I see that he wants me to become discouraged and give up. It would be easy to take this road…quit so the devil wouldn’t harass me and my family…but my heart won’t let me. God has given me the gift of knowing and applying scripture to daily life. The devil doesn’t seem to get the fact, that I’m going to lean on it to get out of the messes he creates. He may stir up trouble, but God can turn it around to bring healing to our lives and others’. We might start to tear our hair out, but then God gives us a nice scalp massage and styles our hair into a nice French twist. Then He sends us off, refreshed and ready to do His work. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28). So…”If the devil doesn’t like it, he can sit on a tack!”
I’m still gonna post my article about chain posts and tell everybody the truth about him!
