Challenges and lions

I’m being challenged. Again. To write. Again. Not just copious blogging, but actually getting out a pen and paper (so old-fashioned, I know) and write. I don’t know what I will be writing. I don’t know what it is that I have to offer aside from an offbeat sense of humor and my observations on life. So, I will begin that journey. I actually have a cool journal that will probably take the brunt of my writing. We will either be best friends or bitter enemies.

Yesterday was one of the most difficult days I’ve had in a while. I bounced between crying and being frustrated and asking the wrong questions. Right now I’m in the gap between my past and my future. I’m paying for past mistakes, and yesterday I allowed my present circumstances to dictate my perception of my future. Which is just silly. All things work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. (I fit into that category.) God will never leave me nor forsake me. God is restoring what the locusts have stolen–even if I left the door open for those things to be eaten.

Today’s challenge is to remind myself of the Truth when the lies rear their ugly head. You know, I’d like to see Aslan take on the devil. I have a sneaking suspicion which lion would win 🙂
