Winning the battle

Lately I’ve been in a warfare of sorts. An internal battle which engulfs me and entangles me to the point of not being able to shake free. I feel pulled down to where it becomes difficult to find the way out, to see the light for the darkness.

Some days are harder than others. There are days when my past failures flash before my eyes; comparisons drown me; and self-doubt makes me wonder if I would be missed were I not here.

I’ve been taken prisoner by the lies of the enemy.

And while I know the way to freedom — the key to opening the door to this cell I’ve been locked away in — there are days where I feel zapped of all my strength to pray.

“When hard pressed, I cried to the LORD; he brought me into a spacious place.”  ~Psalm 118:5


This post today over at Ann Voskamp’s blog really spoke to me this morning as I woke up determined to fight this battle I’m in — determined to win over those lies which distort my thinking and view of myself.

If you are battling lies in your life, please jump over to Ann’s blog and read her post, and remember that God is bigger than any battle we may be in and He has already won it for us.

“Save me, for I am yours;
    I have sought out your precepts.”  ~Psalm 119:94
