Life is War

Life is war. We are all battling an enemy, fighting for the next moment, and trying to gain a victory.

This world puts us in the middle of so much chaos, distraction, and pain that we often forget that we are not alone.

“Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Our God is a God who saves, from the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death.”

— Psalm 68:19-20

Wars are not won in an instant, but one battle, one move at a time. When my daughter was receiving treatment I found myself laying all requests at his feet and praising God for every victory. Each moment that composed each day held a different need. Healing, a fever, a desire to eat, a quick admission, a quiet clinic neighbor… By literally pouring out my heart to God, I was giving Him control, and allowing him to fight for me.

God wants us to constantly approach Him with prayer, praise, and conversation. Wars are not won by one person alone. We can’t live this life by ourselves. I find that when I am overwhelmed, overcome, and feeling defeat it is because I have failed to lay my burdens at the feet of Jesus. Everyone has their own struggles, and I pray that when you seek Him you will find peace, comfort, joy, and strength.

Don’t miss an opportunity to lay your burdens at His feet and free your heart and mind for living in this blessed moment you have been given. 1 Peter 5:7 “Cast your anxiety on Him because he cares for you”, and He is just waiting to be there for you.
