“Sure?” I replied, a little confused.
Smack, smack, ugh, UGH were the sounds emanating from my ten-and-a-half year old daughter and the punching bag. Red faced and hair was flying, I released a belly laugh at the sight of my pink wearing, accessory loving, I-don’t-like-to-sweat daughter punching a stationary bag. “Mom, I need boxing gloves.” she grunts between punches. I stifle another laugh.
Do you ever feel like your in a battle with an invisible opponent? Me too.
Shortly after our trip to the sporting goods store, I found this verse:
“Do not be afraid of them. The Lord your God himself will fight for you.” (Deuteronomy 3:22, NIV)
I’ve been grunting and throwing punches, fighting an invisible illness. All the while, exhausting myself. Last Friday, I shared how God is teaching me to “Cease Striving” but today I want to encourage you to lay down the boxing gloves, “The Lord your God Himself will fight for you.”
