Reflecting Battlegrounds

Our recent experience with nature's battle between Spring and Winter caused me to meditate on life. I really thought by May Spring would have won it’s right to exist; but winter refused to give up, so we began the new month with winter’s cold and snow; however Spring continued to valiantly battle; so by the weekend warmer temperatures did prevail. I believe the same war is being waged in the spiritual world as well.

The Word tells us in the last days hearts will grow cold. . . the battle for the hearts of God’s children is being executed today. We need to watch and stay close to the Lord in obedience.

Lord, You are my Lord!
There is so much to 'take in' in this age. Perhaps I do not wish to “take it in.” Rather I’d like to leave it out. Evil is eagerly gobbling up every opportunity to spread it’s vileness; laws are being passed to destroy our values and constitutional rights. Our children are taught falsehood and are being treated like criminals at young ages.

Youngsters are suspended or expelled for silly reasons. How many of you played “cops and robbers” as kids and had a cap gun? I saw a documentary where 6 kindergarteners were suspended for playing that using fingers as “guns”. A young child was kicked out for pointing a potato nibbled into a gun-like shape in the lunch room; some children as young as 10 and 11 are being arrested, handcuffed, fingerprinted and sent to jail for innocuous reasons in the name of zero tolerance. One of them threw a spit wad across the room at a girl. He was arrested and accused of assault. I recall being kept after school in first grade for the same offense. Why should good kids be treated as criminals? What better place than jail to learn evil?

This is something that needs to be halted. Our children are our biggest treasure and our greatest asset! Our problem is we get upset, but as the irritation continues, we begin to accept it. It's kinda like the continued snow storms here in Colorado (when it’s suppose to be Spring), began to weary people. Trying to stay positive and look for God’s hand in all this was difficult. So then I look at the nation and all the battles evil is promoting in so many areas, and I can see why their persistence can wear good men down and they could win the war. For war it is!

Either God fearing people stand up and fight in all these areas to defend our children, our values and our rights or evil will win! Everyone no matter their physical condition can pray, and prayer is absolutely required to win! Also necessary is to speak out about God and do not be afraid to stand behind our Christian beliefs. The Bible holds absolute truth and weapons. Look at Ephesians:

Ephesians 6:10-24 (AMP)
10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].
11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.
12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.
13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].
14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,
15 And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.
16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].
17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.
18 Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).

My friends, do not allow yourselves to grow weary in well doing!
2 Thessalonians 3:13 (AMP)
And as for you, brethren, do not become weary or lose heart in doing right [but continue in well-doing without weakening].

We must stay strong and wary of the enemy’s moves, for he is subtle, but deadly. He hatefully seeks the hearts of God's children with a vengeance! Do not close eyes to his calculating goals! Pray and put on God’s armor and join the militia that’s fighting for our children and for God to  rule in our nation and in the world.

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Excellent work!
