Do you ever feel like you pray and God hears you but you feel like you can’t hear Him? It takes away the power in prayer. Why pray when I won’t be able to hear God anyway; and why pray when you’ve prayed before, thought you heard God, and things still ended up badly? What then? It’s a discouraging place to be in. I’ve struggled with this the past couple weeks.
I was able to speak with one of my close close friends and this is what I got out of it.
She told me she heard the phrase “new levels means new devils.” Clever. She reminded me that there is a battle going on inside of me. For some reason, I had completely forgotten. Doubt, frustration, etc, is exactly what Satan wants…and I’m giving it right to him. It’s a spiritual war. I can’t get through a war without weapons, without knowledge of my army’s plan, without a General. I realized I was a soldier not ready for battle, yet I was on the battlefield. Not to mention getting attacked.
She told me prayer, music, reading, honesty is what I needed and I couldn’t agree more. We all go through rough roads, I guess this is just a bump in mine.
Daisy update: She’s fabulous as always. She eats more of human food than her food. Definitely not my fault.
