Thankful Thursday

This week has been nuts with a number of things going wrong. I've been feeling discouraged, worried and exhausted. Yesterday I started to think this feels like some kind of battle.  I'm really thankful to take the time to focus on the 5 Things I'm grateful for this week:

1. Armour of God: it's awesome knowing I have tools to fight against the 'schemes of the enemy' and that I don't haved to go it alone in my own measley strength. 
2. Belt of truth: knowing the truth - that He is in control even when things look out of control....and that nothing will touch my life that He doesn't allow. 
3. Shield of faith: having the ability to trust,  to let go - knowing He has already won the battles
4.Sword of the Spirit: having the Bible verses to remind me of the truth....and to quiet the crazy thoughts in my head.
5. Helmet of Salvation knowing I belong on His team, the winning team, the team that cannot be defeated.

2 Cor 10: 4 & 5 Taking every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ...not as easy as it sounds, it takes work! You are definitely working at it and His word will not return empty!
May you rest in His strength and see His mighty hand moving on your behalf!!
Stand firm!
