I know that since the dawn of time individuals have been trying to make truth what they want. Somehow people think that if they just say something or feel something then that is what is true. Like a magic lamp and poof!, truth is what I say it is.
This is a big fat lie! Anyone that lives like this has an agenda whether they realize it or not. That agenda is this: “I get to live however I want and when I want no matter how it hurts others or hurts me. I do not care if it is an abomination to the Creator of love.”
Injustices occur all of the time. Sin destroys people.
Truth exists to set everyone free from the above.
If hatred, anger, vulgar talk, gossip and lies are coming out of your mouth like a venomous snake, let me tell you a not-so-little secret. Truth always wins. Lies will rise to the surface and light will expose what is malevolent.
Be ready to be exposed.
Your game can only be played for so long before justice comes running in to save the ones you are bent on destroying. Love wins. His name is Jesus, perfector of truth and savior for all.
Victory is here.
We are facing giants.
Everywhere we look one stands. It is our responsibility for us to take the land. We must be like Caleb who knew that it would be fine to move forward.
We know God has given us the promised land. It flows with milk, honey and blessings beyond what we could imagine.
The question is, “how do we move forward? How do we slay giants?”
We are so close. We are almost close enough to grasp it.
These giants may be loud, obnoxious and cocky but they don’t know what is coming. Let them shout. Let them laugh in our faces as we come to take what is ours.
We were meant to walk this path to show others that with God the impossible happens.
My little family of 3 is worth trudging through the mud for!
Due to our current dynamics (other blended families can relate) we often face ongoing challenges that require a good lifestyle of forgiveness, self-control, patience, joy, peace, kindness, goodness & love. Oh wait, you mean all families should require that too? Uh… Yeah!
Exclusion and slander have become just a normal thing we face on a regular basis (sadly by multiple people). The unfortunate part about this is that our daughter is the one that pays for it. I want to write a book about all of the ways that kids are getting damaged by selfish, deceitful adults who exclude, lie and slander those whose intentions are pure… So stayed tuned for several years about how selfish adults actions affect the next generation & ways to reverse the damage (insert wink emoji here for added light hearted effect which won’t work anyways).
I have reached a point where just pretending to put a smile on my face around these people is not good enough anymore. If you know anything about me I have always struggled when things are not complete, are not reconciled & when injustices continue to occur. I have also come to the realization that I have at times unknowingly partnered with the thief by just sitting back and allowing a heavy cloak of the wrong identity to be placed on me that was never mine. Consider this post a step to break free from the ongoing bondage I unknowingly partnered with.
Is my family worth it? Yes!
Will I continue to attempt to ensure that my family will be included and given time together that they deserve? Yes, just with a different attempt & with those that are in our lives to lift us up. I have every right to protect and guard those I love especially my own husband and daughter.
Here is to victory after victory!
Here is to triumph after triumph!
Hear the roar of justice! He is coming.
Winter is about to end.
