It’s the fight that counts

OK everybody up! Rise and shine! Good Morning to you!  It’s the weekend! Remember…nothing is better than this day. And you say, wait a minute, that’s what you say every day. And you’re right, of course, because it’s true! Nothing is better than this new day. I’ve been thinking a lot about that lately. Must be all the conflict going around. We need a vaccine so we don’t catch it. We need the tools and ammunition to fight off the conflicts and negative thinking. In fact, we have the tools on board; we were born with them.  They are heart and attitude. We can’t stop the anxiety from cascading around us, but we can put up a fight so it doesn’t overtake us.

Ephesians 6:10-13 (CEV) Finally, let the mighty strength of the Lord make you strong. Put on all the armor that God gives, so you can defend yourself against the devil’s tricks. We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world.  So put on all the armor that God gives.

It’s so easy to let our guard down and let discouragement seep in.  I think it’s that wide path of least resistance we so easily gravitate toward. We get weary and worn out trying to stay centered on the narrow path.  Well, come on …. the wider path is easier, but the narrow path is rewarding. Remember that life is a contact sport and we can get beat up if we don’t fight back. Let’s fight the good fight – the GOOD fight. It’s the fight that counts, that makes the difference.  1 Timothy 6:12 Fight a good fight for the faith and claim eternal life. God offered it to you when you clearly told about your faith, while so many people listened.

Life can make us bitter, God can make us better. Lean on God, lean on friends, lean on family and let’s get out there and rock the world till it tilts toward what’s good….
Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

The battle rages on . . . raise your white flag……
