We are constantly under attack from the forces of darkness and evil. Often the attacks are subtle and slowly take you away from faith with temptations and self comforts. The prince of darkness wants you to believe he is not real or not trying to lead you astray. Like this morning, as I went to start writing, the device I usually write on is not running correctly as I worked to see what was wrong, time was slipping away, maybe I will run out of time and not publish today…it is only one day, no big deal…right where evil wants me. Then a thought comes to mind…what about a different way to publish today? Why not try to write on a different piece of technology we have in this house? That will be different but let’s try it and see…(mostly because I have fat thumbs). While this is certainly not a critical issue or a matter of life or death, it is a small sample that shows us everyday, every decision is a step in the faith journey…we are either stepping closer to God or we are stepping away. By the way, as I am finishing my computer is still not operating…May God’s peace be with you.
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
