Covered by His Blood Warfare, and waiting!

Hello There:

       I am still in the blogging world!  Hope you guys are well!  I apologize for my absence from your blogs and my own.  You may have heard me say before that I've had some battles with depression/anxiety.   While I only had a few blue days this time, it was kind of  disappointing after the progress the Lord has given to me.  This time was different, I felt it was more spiritual attack than anything else.  I know it is not popular to say in this culture that there is Spiritual Warfare, but after speaking with my pastor and one person I greatly trust, I am convinced that it is biblical to believe spiritual warfare is in fact a real thing!  Please don't misunderstand, I don't mean I am demon possessed or anything.  In fact, I want to remind all that Greater is He that is in us than one who is in the world.  Paraphrase of 1 John 4:4  You see to be frank I let my guard down spiritually.  I got lazy and indifferent, apathetic.What I really got too comfortable, and it began to cause me to be prone to attack, but in recent days I have been reminded that Christ has secured the victory for me!  His blood covers me, and therefore God's eternal judgement passes over me, because my soul is covered by the blood of Christ!!!!!!!!!!   Wow!  What would it be like if we truly took hold of that truth!    

      I have been waiting for some time for God to restore a broken realtionship in my life.  I want something to happen, but clearly has  said to me you are to wait and pray.  My response has been Lord I'm tired of waiting and praying for something to change, but the truth is, I am called first to obey, and trust God has heard my prayer and will act in His time!   Are you tired of living an unfulfilled dream, or tired of waiting for God's healing hand?  If you are, I hope like me you will pour out your heart to your Abba Father, and ask him for hope and comfort as you wait upon our Great and Mighty God!!!!

In your hard times, you still have that resounding faith that holds you up. I've friends who suffer from depression and anxiety - there are so many out there and around us. I lift you up in prayer. Yet your faith is still there to minister. I can relate to God's timing - I like things "fixed" and God's timing is sometimes very hard to be patient for. Blessings my friend.

How well i know that spiritual warfare is real! I will pray for you sweet TJ. I too deal with anxiety and it is not fun. But our God is so good and He is the one that we can turn to and depend on to keep us on the right path.

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble! Therefore we will not be afraid, though the earth trembles and the mountains topple into the depths of the seas!" Psalm 46:1-2

God will sustain you through this!
I always try to imagine who I might be able to help with the same problem , after Ive gotten through it.
Going through the refiners fire is never easy, but He's in control of the heat!
Hang in there girlfriend!!

Girl.. spiritual warfare is totally totally totally real alive and active in our world today-- take it from someone who has fought some ?HUGE spiritual battles here.. and can say that most of the battles occur primarily in the mind really. Soemtimes you cannot even fight.. you just have to ask God to fight for you when you are to tired to fight them. and He does in his way and his time. I am praying for you sweet sis and will see you in ONE month.

There is so many excellent comments that i am just going to say i agree with what they said. I have also been waiting for God to heal or mend a broken relationship-meanwhile i pray for that person and move on with my life. You are in my prayers my wise friend. Dee
