Well, I had another very strange day today. I found myself getting so frustrated with all the unusual ways in which the day steered me as I’m watching it unravel. So, I’ve come to realize that you just have to “Go with it”.
Anytime you see your day going out in left field, rather than get so very uptight about it as I did today and every other day that I’ve seen things going awry, you should exercise more positive thought patterns and just try to role with the punches. Now, as far as I knew I was rolling with it today,
I remember that I stopped for a moment, got on my knees, and prayed to God, our Father, in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ over how the day was going and I felt hopeful that the roller coaster would stop because there really was no logical reason why the day was so unpredictable.
Phillipians 2:10,11 “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Finally, the solution was revealed to me. But my thought process was, “Why couldn’t this have been resolved for me sooner?” So my heart was not in the right place at that moment because I was questioning God. Came to realize that God simply wasn’t ready to resolve it for me yet.
Phillipians 4:7 “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
After the day was over, I found myself feeling like I had just left a battlefield.
When I think about it in spiritual terms, I actually did just have a day out on the battlefield. Because these weird things don’t just come out of nowhere. I believe the enemy meant to steal my joy and I must admit, he almost did because I felt so beaten, broken, and physically drained afterwards.
Then, I realized that it is not the battle that I must be concerned about, its the war. I plan on winning the war when its all said and done because I claim victory over the enemy every time, no matter how frazzled I may become after his nasty and sneaky attacks.
While he may interfere with my joy or your joy, he cannot take it away unless we let him. Don’t ever give him that power over you!!!
So, in closing this day’s journal, I may have lost the battle today, but I have not lost the war and I don’t plan on it.
Our Father in Heaven has the final say!
