Get Out Of The Pit Of Despair

So, I came across some of my old writings when typewriters were a thing ... oh goodness.. 18 or so years ago?!?! before I blogged.. but I obviously still had the desire to share my heart with others..... and I thought I would share it with you... so this is straight from my former self ... when I was in my late 20's.

Get up, get up, get up! Get out of that pit that you have dug for yourself. Get out of despair! But I can't Lord, there are so many things going on, it's just too much to bear. Get up! Put on the whole armor of God and face the day.
"Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand. Stand therefore having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;" Ephesians 6:13-18

Hmmmmm above all taking on the shield of faith so you can quench all of the fiery darts of the wicked. What are fiery darts? My fiery darts are doubts, negative thoughts, trying to figure out what God is doing, why certain things are happening, trying to make things work on my own strength. But we can take the shield of faith and by doing so we can get rid of those fiery darts. We can put out, destroy those negative thoughts that bring us down. I say again, get out of that pit that you are in. Get up!

"Finally, brethren whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of a good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Phillipians 4:8.

Our mind is to be set on these things. Our mind is to be on whatever is true, whatever is honest and just and pure, whatever is lovely, a good report, and if there is any virtue, any praise think on these things. We aren't to be down in the dumps. If you let your mind slip, you will follow it. In other words, if you let yourself dwell on negative things, before you know it, you are down.

Don't allow it. Take the shield of faith, of knowing that your Lord loves you and cares for you. Destroy those negative thoughts. Think on good things and get out of that pit. GET UP!
