what's that buzzzin?

It's me! I've been as busy as a bee these days! And have a cold to prove it. My goodness. Things went from relatively calm to over-drive in a matter of hours I think. We had a big meeting on Sunday that helped kick things along though. I'm so excited for this new program our church is going to do! I don't wanna spill to much so I won't, but lemme tell ya... most posts in January just might thrill ya'll to death! I'm going to be one busy gal for the next few months with church, but that's allright! You know how when you're excited for a new job, the mountain of work doesn't seem so daunting? I'm at that point right now. However, I know when we get knee deep in it, I'll need some prayer. So pray me up now girls! :) I can not wait to see how this team that God has assembled carries out His work. And glory to Him that He chose me to be on it! I'm actually feeling quiet confident where normally I would feel inadequately chosen. I know that my God will give me what I need to complete the task He gave me, and I think that might excite me more than anything else. How exciting that He's chosen me to help in this task! I'm ready Lord! Let's ride!

Other than that excitement for the week, as usual when God gives you something amazing satan swoops in to steal your joy and discourage you. So we're doing some spiritual battle with him. Praying him off of certain people he's found it thrilling to attack relentlessly. In my family he's chosen to attack our health. Our allergies are getting to us now. I have little voice left and my sweet babies have runny noses and scratchy throats. He's also decided to make my husband less available to me by messing things up at his work so that he has to work longer and more hours. I guess it puts feet to the phrase, "you know you're in God's will when satan won't let up". We are in God's will, and WE won't be letting up. I'm tired of seeing satan win small victories in my life and the life of my friends and Sistah's. I'm fed up. It's time to get back in his face and tell him to MOVE out of the way! He as no business here and he knows it. It's almost sad to see satan scramble so, but then I am reminded that he chose this life for himself. He may have lost the war already, but let's choose to also take small victories away from him! Feel like being a little short with your husband or kids? Wanna gossip just a tad? Want to fall back into a sinful pattern or stronghold in your life? Fight ladies! Don't let satan smile! He wants nothing more than for us to step away from our Jesus, even if just for a moment, and sin. The more small victories he can build up in our lives, the further away from Christ he can pull us. I for one, and tired of him winning. I am revved up and ready to do battle. Who's with me?

Jen - I also rebuke Satan in my life and in the lives of my family and friends. Thanks for reminding me that "when we are in God's will, Satan is upset and relentless." Blessings dear one and had such a good time today at Christmas in November. Hanging with you and Debbie was a blast!

Jen--He chose you because He can use you. He called you, He will equip you. May He abundant blessings be upon you.

Yes we can fight the good fight of faith. Submit yourselves to God, resist the enemy and he must flee. James 4:7

Blessings in Christ--
