Five Minute Friday: Fight

"Outside.
Now"

Is it only on Eastenders that people actually say that?
I can't imagine wanting to invite people to come outside and inflict pain on me.

But fight?
I know it well.
We are companions on the road.
Along with battle

And struggle.

Maybe that's just the way life is?

I know Jesus never promised it would be easy.
In fact he warned of the the opposite.

But with the warning came the promise
"I've won!!"

So at the start of this year
I'm ready..... ish.
We're in this together
He and I.

We're fighting for joy
And love
And peace of heart and mind.
We're fighting against
things that threaten to floor me.

And the really good news?

"I will fight for you.
All you have to do is be still"
Exodus 14:14

Ssssh!!!

Oh
(I'm whispering....)

And Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I'm your neighbor over at Lisa-Jo's place.

I wrote about our battle not being against flesh and blood and how we are on the winning team. ;-)

I pray you have an awesome 2014 and I'm thankful that the Lord goes with us wherever we go.

Blessings!
Beth

Love the name of your blog, plus my heart holds a special things for all things England. This world seems to frown on the notion of 'being still', but in this season of life I'm embracing it. Happy 2014! Visiting from FMF today.

'...holds a special affection for all things England...' typo, grrr.

I lived in the UK for six years before moving back to the states in 2009...lots of happy family memories made for us there.
