The Tide Is Rising


I’ve cried more today than I ever have in my life. My body has been shaken to the core. My entire nervous system is a train wreck. It’s an understatement to say that my strength is gone and I’m out of breath. By far this is the most intense battle I’ve ever faced.

Fortunately, I know this is how the enemy operates. Just when you’re on the brink of your breakthrough he pounces on you. It may feel like just a series of coincidences, but it’s a strategic attack. Satan knows you see light, but he will do anything to keep you in the darkness.

I’m having to crawl and fight just to hold on. My patience is gone and my body is so weary. Only a clear mind and secured heart in Christ stabilizes me as bombs continuously go off around me. My suffering steals my joy each second. Even still my eyes are fixated on the only Savior I know Jesus Christ.

“I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”
Psalm 16:8
