Fight the Good Fight

I find this song, Battles by the Afters,  to be very fitting for me right now. And I’m sure it’s fitting for a lot of you as well.  The Lord is constantly fighting our battles for us. It’s such a good reminder.

Satan is always going to be on the warpath, constantly whispering in our ears, “You’re not good enough. Just give it up, you’ll never win.” Little does HE know.

We know better, right? Because with God on our side, we will be victorious! There is coming a day when Satan will be banished to spend eternity in hell and WE will be spending our eternity with our Creator, who loves us and fights for us.

I long for the day when I see Jesus face to face! To hear Him say “Well done my good and faithful servant.”

 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him
James 1:12

We must continue to fight the good fight!

Battles

The Afters-video

This current is trying to wreck me
Like castles of sand, castles of sand
My fear, like an enemy army
Is marching again, but I’m making a stand

You surround me on every side
Your love is my armor, I fear no evil
Darkness runs from Your light
So I won’t be afraid, I won’t be afraid

You’re going before me and oceans are parting
You’re fighting my battles
When my feet are failing and my heart is shaking
You’re fighting my battles

You’re fighting my battles
You’re fighting my battles
You’re fighting my battles

Time after time, You’re my refuge
You heal every scar, You’re guarding my heart
Your promise, the hope that I cling to
My rescue, my friend, You come rushing in

And surround me on every side
Your love is my armor, I fear no evil
Darkness runs from Your light
So I won’t be afraid, I won’t be afraid

You’re going before me and oceans are parting
You’re fighting my battles
When my feet are failing and my heart is shaking
You’re fighting my battles

You’re fighting my battles
You’re fighting my battles
You’re fighting my battles

You’re fighting my battles
You’re fighting my battles
You’re fighting my battles

In my weakness, You are strong
Every trouble, You have overcome
In my weakness, You are strong
Every trouble, You have overcome
In my weakness, You are strong
Every trouble, You have overcome
You have overcome

You’re going before me and oceans are parting
You’re fighting my battles
When my feet are failing and my heart is shaking
You’re fighting my battles

From Discouraged to Victorious!

I will admit, I’m feeling very discouraged today. I had a doctor’s appointment and as usual, they weighed me. The second I saw those numbers, I immediately became discouraged. This is definitely not where I want to be.

 

Unfortunately, two of my medications cause weight gain. (not trying to blame the medicine but it definitely doesn’t help!)

So I have to work extra hard to lose the weight. I will also admit, I haven’t been doing my very best. I make feeble attempts to lose weight. But I’ve never actually given my battle with weight loss to the Lord.

Until now.

I’m going to ask you all a favor. Would you please hold me accountable and encourage me as I make this journey into losing weight? It’s going to be a struggle, this much I know. But with God’s help and your encouragement, I think know I can do this.

I just came across a verse that is going to help me.

 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize
1 Corinthians 9:24

I’m going to win this battle. Satan is not going to defeat me again on this.

What is something you battle Satan with? Are you tired of feeling like you’re losing the battle?

Look to Jesus. He will lift you up and with Him on your side, you WILL be victorious!
