I have inherited Your testimonies forever,
For they are the joy of my heart.
I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes
Forever, even to the end.
Psalm 119: 111, 112

The Armor of God

So...it appears to us that the enemy is on the prowl.  Many of our dear friends and family members have been struck hard this season with flu, sinus infections, bronchitis, RSV, croup and more.  Our pastors wife and my sweet friend (also the worship leader at church) is in the hospital with a nasty kidney infection and kidney stones.  There is even the possibility of surgery.

I returned home from dance rehearsal this Sunday and went about my usual "reminders of the week's events and daily prayer needs" with the family as I bustled around the kitchen clearing items.  My most urgent request was to be in prayer against the forces of darkness and the power of the enemy, which of course holds nothing but a twig in the face of our Lord.  I told my kids to remember to be praying for God's Kingdom to be here with our friends and family and for His almighty power to rest upon all of us.  I said, "We need to pray for miraculous healing and remember this is a battle and God will win, as He always does."  Not 10 seconds had passed as I finished my mini-sermon, when Ty headed into his bedroom, obviously on a mission.  He came back out shortly, looking like this...

Ty wearing his "Armor of God"

Ty was ready to wage battle!  No worries that his armor consists of his baseball helmet and the belt for his dress slacks.  It's a good thing he really does know what the true armor of God consists of!  This was pretty darn funny, though.
