When I think of today’s title I not only think about physical defense but I think about mental defense. The world we live in can be frustrating, tiring and scary. Anyone 25 years old or older would agree that life is very really different today than when they were growing up. Some would say it seems as if the world is going in a negative direction.
For the glass half full person, like me, you may be thinking the world is different but you see great process in many areas, just as technology. I like change. I thrive on it. I get bored easily and lose interest when I fall into the ho hums of the same ole daily grind. What I love most about change is the challenge to make change work.
Proverbs 4:6-7 says Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
Wake up everyday ready to battle not only those who want to harm you physically but those who want to harm you mentally. After many months of posting my blogs in a new venue and receiving likes, thanks and positive comments every day, I opened a comment to read “quit posting this crap every day”. I must admit my first instinct was to think my stuff was crap and ALL my reader hated what I was saying. For days I barely even looked at my website and I simply pushed any words I wanted to type to the back of my mind. But after a few days of feeling sorry for myself, I pulled my big girl britches up and decided to get back to writing again. My blogs certainly may not be wanted by everyone who sees them or reads them , but my words of encouragement are for everyone. So for the lady who hated my post, may you not read it when you see and if you do, may you be encouraged my crap that you have read.
I encourage you take a few minutes to physically and mentally prepare yourself for attack. Become wise in the ways of the enemy so you can expect his next move and plan how to win the battle. Every battle you win can boost your self-confidence. Go win today.
