Oh, what a day! When you are about to spend precious time with the Lord, the enemy comes after you with a vengeance! Our women’s group from church planned a getaway to a remote island to get some respite from our everyday challenges. We had sixteen women make it there and every woman has a story of how the forces of evil were trying to stop them. The island is an hour and a half away and being a driver, I decided to pull my car out of the garage to give room for someone to park in it. As I turned the key to crank the car all I heard was “click, click, click!” The battery was dead! I get a grin on my face realizing the trials had begun. The enemy forgot that I had a husband that can do just about anything! He changed out the battery and we were on our way without any delays. That’s just one instance! Just know that the enemy is so jealous of our relationship with God that he will do anything to try and stop us from cultivating it to bring our hearts into alignment with His. Fight for your time with Him, even if it stirs up madness all around you. It’s worth it!
My beloved speaks and says to me: "Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away, for behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. Song of Solomon 2:10-12
