Under Attack

I've been under attack in so many ways over the last few months, but right now, I'm feeling especially weak and vulnerable.  I'm sure a lot of it is the two shots I've had in my back in a short span of time. Yes, they help in so many ways, but the shots themselves wreak havoc with my mental attitude for a little while.  Some of it is the fact that the economy is creating a difficulty for us because my husband's business has been hit hard. Yes, I struggle personally and we struggle as a family, but we do not struggle alone, even though at times it may feel that way.

I'm in a low spot, but you know what? I won't stay here. I'm going to dig my way out of this pit and I know the Lord is reaching down to take my hand and pull me up.  He doesn't want me in this state of mind anymore than I want to be.

I'm allowing myself to mourn the loss of certain things in my life.  I'm not going to pretend that this isn't difficult or that I don't miss so many of the things in my life I did. However, I also know that the Lord is working through this just like he works through every area of my life.  I'm where I am right now and things aren't peachy-keen. However, things will get better. I know they will.

I refuse to be devoured by the enemy of my soul. I will keep my eyes on THE ONE who gives me life and gives me hope - Jesus Christ.

Blessings - Julie


  1. Stay strong and continue to be thankful. You will persevere!

  2. Julie, you are a strong woman and the enemy won't win. I agree about those takes a while to sort it out. I personally gained 10-15 lbs per shot and it took years to get off. In my case, they didn't help but so glad they help you. Hang in there.....I'll be praying for you.

  3. i wish there was more I could to help you. You KNOW I KNOW what you're going through. I am only an e mail away.. Hugs to you..
