When Life Brings You To Your Knees
In tears, shaking, my thoughts feasting on my soul. I was trying to fight back tears that still fell from my weary eyes. Depression was trying to get the very best of me. There was no more facing life alone and without my savior, Jesus Christ. You see, life was breaking me down. I had more bills than money, fighting with my husband, and an eviction notice taped to my front door. Before this time in my life, I thought that my lil' crazy self had life under control. (I was sadly mistaken.) It took me falling to my knees to be brought back to reality. The reality I was facing was that I couldn't live my life without Jesus Christ...
In my situation, I had to put on the full armor of God. I was going underneath a spiritual attack. You maybe have faced several in your lifetime or facing one as you read this. I am here to tell you from my spirit to yours that everything will be ALRIGHT. Let go and let God have his way. If you don't mind, (hopefully, you don't.) I prayed this prayer that I also wrote down in my gratitude journal to share with you all.
Dear Heavenly Father,
I want to thank you for everything that you with store within and upon my life. Thank you for waking me up this morning and starting me on my way. Thank you for the blessings and the lessons that You have brought forth in my life and have taught me. Heavenly Father, I am asking that you strengthen me in every way that You see me stand in need of. For I need You and I can't live this life without you. I am asking that you forgive me for my sins. Renew my heart, my soul, and my mind. For You know me, You understand me, and You can make me whole again. I am asking that You continue to move through my life. As I pray this prayer I am asking that You bless my soul. Help me walk down the path of right righteousness wearing the full armor of God. In Your Heavenly name that I pray,
After praying this prayer I grabbed my phone. Yes, no lie. I turned to Google to find a Bible verse that can give me even more guidance. I was directed to,
Ephesians 6:11 KJV
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”I learned that no matter how rough times may get that we are all able to stand and face our storms. On Gotquestions.com it states, "In our own strength and power, we have no chance of defeating the “spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (v. 12). Only the “full armor of God” will equip us to withstand spiritual attack. We can only be strong in the Lord’s power; it is God’s armor that protects us, and our battle is against spiritual forces of evil in the world.
Do not be shaken and stand strong. I now place my trust in God even when my back is up against a wall. I found and still find the strength to practice what I am saying to you today.
It will get better.
