every experience in life there are good things and bad things that can happen
to us. Hopefully, the good will out weigh the bad. Yet, In my experiences
I have learned that most important element in this equation is our attitude.
Like a light shining in the darkness, a good attitude will break the back
of a bad attitude every time, thereby turning even the most awful experiences
into a good one.
Each day and sometime moment by moment, we decide
how our life will be lived. Jesus said, “Blessed (or happy) are the peace
We become better and better by our stand, Paul wrote to stand and then stand
firm His prayer was that we would find strength in God no matter what was going
on around us, interesting, isn’t it that his words still ring so very true
Put on the Whole Armor of God
Finally, be strong
in the Lord and in the
strength of his power. Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able
to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For our struggle is
not against enemies
of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against
the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of
evil in the heavenly places.
Therefore take up
the whole armor of God,
so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done
everything, to stand firm.
Stand therefore, and
fasten the belt of
truth around your waist, and put on the breastplate of righteousness. As shoes
for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of
peace. With all of these, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able
to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
