Voices in my head

This week as been a particularly trying week for me. I have been "off my game" so to speak. I have been struggling to pray, struggling to get up to spend my time with my Savior, and struggling to have a postive attitude about my life. I guess we all have "down" weeks. My struggle really began on Sunday when I had to miss worship. We all have reasons why we have to miss church. I don't like missing and I feel lost when I do.

Finally, it hit me. Light bulb!! The devil will fight us in many different ways. I have seen his power in the big battles of my life. Battles that I know, with God's power, I have been victorious. I have felt like a warrior. A warrior with God's power, that is ready for battle and is strong. This week, however, satan has worked against me in a quiet manner. The voice saying, "sleep a little longer, you can read your Bible later." The voice telling me to feel sorry for myself. The voice saying "you deserve this or that." This week I have chosen to listen to that voice instead of the voice of my GOD. My GOD who has been on my side in thick and thin. My GOD that loves me above all. Why do we choose to listen to satan's voice???

"Choose ye this day whom ye will follow..." Sometimes it's easy to know who we are following. Other days it's a struggle. We quietly follow the easy road and don't realize it. Wake up!! Listen to GOD's voice. His is the only one we need to follow. Make your choice today. Follow GOD.

Following God

I have purposed in my heart to follow you, GOD, and to live healthy. I draw my strength from you.

"But be very careful to keep the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you: to love the LORD your GOD, to walk in all his ways, to obey his commands, to hold fast to him and to serve him with all your heart and your soul." Joshua 22:5

On this day I have committed the rest of my life to serving GOD with all my heart, mind, body and soul.
