Fighting The Invisible War ...

... put on the full Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,

15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Ephesians 6:10-18
New International Version (NIV)

I learned this about 35 years ago.
Before my feet hit the floor or before I get up in the morning.
My full armour is put on.
I would not face the day or night
any other way.
I smile at your sharing
Love you, Jamie's mom

Great blog! I have a blog too, but I don't get a chance to update it often. I have a nearly 3-year-old daughter.

I am also a freelance writer and I'm working on three parenting books. I need more writers to help with some of the chapters. The one I'm specifically thinking about for you is called "What you can learn about God through children." If you're interested, email and I'll get you some details!
