I watched The War Room again a few evenings ago.
If you have not seen this movie - PLEASE! Watch it.
But I offer this warning: It will change your life.
Lord only knows how much we ALL need our lives changed in these days.
My take away with this watching:
- I wrestle not against flesh and blood ... not even against my own.
I never once thought about it like that.
I have prayed that verse in the Bible for years - reminding myself, reminding others
“We wrestle not against flesh and blood”
But not once have I prayed that verse over my own life, for ME
- I wrestle not against my own flesh or blood
God, the battle is Yours
For my mind, my thoughts
My body, my very life
The Victory in the Battle belongs to You, God
Just like I do
Teach me Your ways to pray over me
Teach me Your ways to live this life
Rising above the circumstances that life has placed me in
- a widow, alone
God, teach me how to let You love me dearly
And teach me how to love myself - like You do
So that I may learn to love others the way You already do
God, you know the thoughts that I have wrestled with for oh so long
- some for longer than Rick has been gone. Those were the ones that only You and he knew about.
- others I have shared in the words of my blog, and at different times with others
- and then there are those kept in darkness and secret, that only I know ... well, You and I.
God, I am oh so tired and weary of the struggles
There is nothing good in me, of my own self
Galatians 6:14 - May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
The only good in me is You, God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
But no where in Your Word does it tell me to beat myself up - on any level
God, You have forgiven me of my sin
How can I do less?
Romans 6:1 - 2 - What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?
This is true repentance
And it is a gift of God’s Amazing Grace
With the Faith You have given to me, I accept the gift of repentance
Teach me Your ways to live it out in my day to day life
Teach me Your ways of Honoring You with every word I speak, every move I make, and every breath I take
God, I love You.
Oh how I love You.
In Jesus’ Name
And for Your Praise
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
