This question popped in my mind during lecture this week and I’ve been mulling it over ever since.
We were talking about embracing suffering…
I have been fighting demons every day and it seems like I lose every day.
I woke up this morning with a new thought: one day at a time.
In my other bible study (yes, I am now doing two and I’m not for sure why besides out of pure insanity) one lady talks about how her husband has not had a drink in 18 months. Admittedly, this annoyed me. Until I realized it was a good idea.
Taking life one step at a time, one moment at a time, striving to do better, to be better–all under God’s grace.
To overcome whatever lies the devil is speaking to our hearts. To think before act. To remain calm when society says this world is anything but.
Am I broken? Yes. We all are. And that is okay.
We don’t have to have it all together because if we did we’d be perfect. And we all know the only One who’s perfect.
Yet in my brokenness I can still be all God wants me to be. And more.
If I only choose to believe. In me. In Him. In His purpose for my life. And in my ability to overcome my demons. In God’s power to do so. Rebuke them and put them where they belong. All as God’s grace and mercy flow. Perpetually. Forever. Amen.
