Things are getting hard. Work is becoming more challenging, we are anticipating our next move (new state, new jobs, new everything), uncertainty is growing, and it becomes easy to let the cares of this world dull HE who sparkles in us, through us, and before us.
I am reminded of the verse above from Matthew. I refuse to allow satan to dim this light of mine and deceive me into believing that the cares of this world are more important than the mission I am here for. What is that mission? To love the Lord with ALL my heart, and His people. To let His love drive me, not fear. To surrender to HIM that He may be my EVERYTHING so when all the external temporary things around me become more difficult and seem hopeless, I remember that my identity and worth is not built on those things, but Him. I pray that you be encouraged if you are reading this today. Discouragement has been a powerful weapon that the enemy has been using against me but I am leaning on the promise I made for this new year that I would trust in God with all that I have and seek Him FIRST. "Zip it, satan, I am not listening to you."
