Five Minute Friday...giving him notice...


Five Minute Friday time! One word...five minutes...no editing. Today's word is NOTICE.



Are you feeling discouraged? Do you believe lies that are whispered to you? There is an enemy who wants to destroy you and me...
Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8


I am tired of his lies and deceit so I am giving him notice...

Satan...you have no power here. Your tricks and deceptions will not work on me. I have Jesus on my side...I am leaning on Him for support. He is my strength...He is my shield...He is my defender. These scriptures are what I will listen to...I will not believe your lies, so quit trying...


I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. 
Philippians 4:13

The LORD is my strength and my shield. 
Psalm 38:7

In the day when I called out, You answered me, 
and made me bold with strength in my soul.
 Psalm 138:3

The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; the God of my strength, 
in Him I will trust, my shield and the horn of my salvation, 
my stronghold and my refuge, my Savior, You save me from violence. 
2 Samuel 22:2


(now read those verses again...substituting the I's and me's and my's with your name...)

I've read The Book...Satan loses in the end...he is defeated. So live in victory!!

Five Minute Friday...I Still Do...

Today is Five Minute Friday. A group of bloggers all sharing thoughts on a single word and five minutes to write whatever comes to mind. The word for today is STILL....

GO...


November 14 is just a regular day....
           it is not an anniversary of anything...
                   there are no big date plans....
                          in fact this morning has been quite uneventful...

In the midst of just a regular day...
           in the quietness of my morning routine...
                     I reach for a cup to make my hot chocolate in...
                           this cup says it all...I still Do.



         
Over 26 years of marriage...
            9631 days...many of them just plain ordinary days...
                      but is any day with you just ordinary?
                             In our every day life  know that I still Do!

I still love you...
      I still count it an honor to be your wife...
           I still smile when I think of you...
               My heart skips a beat when I know you are on the way home...
                    I still thank God everyday for you...even on "those" days...
                           I still do!
