NO !!!!! I have Changed My Mind.......

I had post earlier this week about something that was on my mind and was something that I struggled with and sooooooooooooooooooooo NOW i have changed my mind and my heart it light and full tonight and I am not going to share anything with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified............


I am having quite a week and it will continue through the weekend and into next week...... I promise that I will share with you everything when this is finished! It will be so much fun to show you what I am trying soooooooooooo hard to keep secret! But.......... This post has noting to do with that................


While standing by the side of my bed this morning folding clothes my mind was wondering here and there about life and how wonderful my life is today........... My mind went back in time to the years before I was born again and then on to the few years after that......... My goodness what a journey.


I went into my Christian life with the though that "Whew, now my life will be fine and everything will be perfect and my troubles are over" OMG.............. was I wrong!


You see, when you are lost and your spirit man is dead Satan does not even know your name. He does not care on hoot about you and he care not if you are dead or alive. He does not care if you are happy or sad or young or old or a hard worker or lazy. He does not care........ He only wants you to remain in his kingdom......... Now, when you are born again all of a sudden he knows your name. You have his attention and now it is his mission to destroy you...... Oh, now he cannot take your soul but he really wants you unhappy and a defeated Christian. Heaven knows he does not want you triumph in your life......... So starts the war.

My gosh, how many of us can relate to that........

What a war it is......... The word of God tells us that


Eph 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].


Now if the word of God uses the word wrestle, then we are going to be thrown to the mat on occasions...... BUT !!!


He knows your name........... Now, you might ask what in the world has this got to do with my happy heart.............. We are MORE than conqueror!!!

Rom 8:37
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

We are more! More than a conqueror!


How can you be MORE than a conqueror? Because we have Jesus and HE rose from that tomb.......... He is alive and we have available to us the host of heaven and all the power that it contains! He is watching and He knows our comings and our goings.....


While folding clothes this morning I had a thought........ (be nice) I was thinking of my friend over at MelanieJoy and this is what the Father dropped into my spirit man.........


Just when you think that God is not watching........... He winks!


Be blessed this day girls........ we win..............

Denise i so needed to hear this post. I really think this post was meant for me! laughs. I have been under attack by Satan of late, i know it is because I am not his, that he can not have me. I am already taken, taken by Jesus. :) However the attacks against me in the physical sense, my health has been coming left and right and everywhere! I did sit with God and pray that he protect me, and i am feeling and getting answers from God. Slowly things are turning, and i am coming up for air again out of that depression Satan tries to hold me. Hugssssss

Ty again for always being so wonderfully in Tune with God and what he wants or needs you to say or show.

Oh Denise, this is so awesome for you. Have I ever told you lately that I'm really happy to have 'stumbled upon' your blog and having you in blogland that I call friend? Well, if I haven't, I am now.

You are so inspirational to all who come your way!

AND!!!!!!!!! you're teasing us too. If may be hard on you to keep a secret but you're toying with us. Excitement is building just reading and not knowing what it'll all be about.

Well lets try this again.
I guess I need to keep it short and sweet this time.;)
Good stuff here...God has been teaching me from the same area in Ephesians. Some good stuff on the sword and the spirit man.
Can't wait to hear what you are learning.
Can't wait to catch up.
Love ya girl

I too agree with my (Twin Tracy's comment, but i am in a different situation. Unlike my sister she is in a lot of physical pain, where i am
only broken hearted due to my 14yr.
old son's actions!!!
I have enjoyed reading your blog, and i too am waiting to hear to what is so wild in your life right now....
