If you're not familiar, here are the verses on the armor of God:
After I wrote down "control" as my issue, Pricilla wrote something that totally caught me off guard: "Everything you wrote is not your real problem" The real culprit is the one working behind the scenes to try to take away all the joy and peace we are given though a relationship with God, and you guessed it, it's Satan. This is a pretty bold statement, but I believe it is entirely true. She goes on to reassure us that once we are God's we can't be taken from Him, but Satan will do what he can to get us off track and make our lives as free from peace as he can.
My anger at lack of control shouldn't be directed towards any one person, but I need to understand the real source of the problem, then take up the full armor of God to defend myself and my family in the midst of trials.
I'm really excited to see where this study goes and what it really looks like to take up the full armor of God. I plan to share what I'm learning with you all in the coming weeks, but I hope you'll begin to consider your life and struggles too. Consider what you think your issue is, and then work with God to do something about it.
I've shared thredUp with all a bunch of times on here, and I'm doing it again today. I recently got this top and cardigan-both from J.Crew with credits from thredUP. I mentioned last week a need I had for tee shirts to wear while I'm at home with Hannah, so I love this polka dot one! This cardigan was new with tags and only $10! I actually wore this last week for a women's bible study at church, but it was definitely cozy for time at home too. Use this link for $20 off your first purchase from thredup, which, by the way, would have gotten you both these pieces for free!
