Pause For The Lie Shuffle



Pause.

Deep breath in…1…2…3

Exhale out...1…2…3

God, thank you for these dear reader friends. The lies are on shuffle in our minds. They come on, and we let them run through our minds. They cripple us, reminding us of our past. They taunt us, and distract us. We are struggling. We are spent. Please strengthen us in this battle, to stop the shuffle by listening to truth. Remind us that our battle is not with the people in our lives, or ourselves, but we are in a spiritual war with spiritual beings and powers that we cannot see. You are holding us close, the truth is right there before us and in us. Help us to believe it, to resist how sweet the lies sound and trust the truth. We are chosen. We are beautiful. We are filled with purpose. We are wanted. We are Yours. We are capable. We are strong. We are brave. We can. We will. Our past has no hold over us. Because of You. Because of You, the lies have no value, they are worthless. Thank you for being our constant source of truth and loving us through the process of leaving our water jars behind and for your overflowing never ending truth. We love you.

Deep breath in…1…2…3

Exhale out…1…2…3

"If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine!" Matthew 5:14 (MSG)
