encouragement to live to fight another day

This morning I woke with the same sluggish, less than hopeful, depressed view that I went to bed with.  While taking my boys to school this morning though, the Lord brought to mind a verse.

"Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.  Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it, but one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."

Today I know I have a battle raging inside of me and today I will press on.  I will fight and I will lean on the strength of the Lord to carry me through.


  1. thank you for writing <3 I was looking for some encouragement and wanting spiritual encouragement to fight the beast~ God is greater than this... and tomorrow morning will be a great day for life and breakfast... Jeremiah 30:16,17; "But all who devour you will be devoured; all your enemies will go into exile. Those who plunder you will be plundered; all who make spoil of you I will despoil. But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, ' declares the LORD, ..." My God give you the victory as you continue to fight against the lies of the enemy~ God's peace and strength~ Thank you for pressing on!

  2. thank you. Your kind words and encouragement were perfect for today!
