My husband often times held me back when it came to our children because sometimes they needed to feel the consequences of this crazy and broken world without me softening it. My oldest daughter told me not long ago that I often made everything ok and when she entered into her own world it was hard realizing the world was not gonna treat her like her momma and make everything ok for her. NO matter how hard I wish I still could. We mommas never want to see our babies hurt now, do we?
Yet ~ as I turn on the news this morning my momma's heart is heavy. I want to right the wrongs and fix the broken. Yet, these days "Sunnyville" seems to have slid down the slippery slope along with the beloved "Mayberry." No matter how hard I look for them they are nowhere to be found.
So what are we to do in the current mess we find ourselves in today? This is what I am asking my Heavenly Father. Here is the answer I found in His Word this morning. I am Christ's child and my life belongs to Him. Even though I am walking in the flesh I am not to war according to my flesh. That means even though we live in this world we are not to wage war like the world does. We are not to fight with the world's weapons but with the divine power of our God. We need to realize that our powerful God has the power to pull down strongholds . We need to take our thoughts captive and look at this war through the eyes of God.
