My thoughts haven't been in a praise-worthy place the last few weeks. Satan knows I am weakest on the battlefield of my mind, and he gains small victories in my life every day with his stratagies; playing on the fact that I don't fully trust God with ALL of my life.
I have been consumed with resentment, disappointment, anger, intolerance, narrow vision, feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, ignored, disrespected and belittled.
In such a place as I have been, there is little room to glorify God. There is no room to be grateful. No room to be thankful. No room to breathe. No room to see.
Coming out of such a place is a decision. It is a choice to put away the darkness and re-embrace the light that Jesus offers. It is a battle of wills, to tell Satan his attacks are lost and I choose to glorify God in my struggles and then to ask for forgiveness for my stubbornness and self-centeredness.
The first thing I have to do is go back to the cross, get face down and beg God to fill me with His fire again. I am choosing to start with glorifying him with this song.
