Colossians 2:6-7 NIV
I find myself in a continuous struggle with Satan. Every step I take I find him tempting me to veer down a different path. Every spare moment I have, I find him creeping into my life. Many times it is overwhelming. More times than I dare to think about, I have given in. I've allowed his influence to overpower my love for God, and in return, has lessened my resolve to live a life centered on my faith.
I have discovered that in order to stay deeply rooted in my faith, I need constant reminders and constant encouragement. That is one of the primary reasons for this blog. By expressing my faith in a public forum, I have people looking to me to carry out my faith in my daily life. Anything less is just words on a page.
Much like a strong house has to be built on a strong foundation, I realize now more than ever that Jesus is my solid rock I stand on. I am forever thankful for our father's love and live knowing my actions are an expression of my love for him. I just continue to pray that he will guide and direct me to do his will in every walk of life.
I pray tonight that he will continue to strengthen my faith and allow me to work towards his will. I know that the devil does his best to work in all of us, but it is ultimately through God's saving grace that we achieve salvation.
