between praise and warfare

Things have been so hectic the last several months. Between extended family issues (they are never ending), my health, my nephew’s future, Hannah’s growing pains and now my brother’s health; I have found myself asking God for some down time. Please Jesus, can things be calm for a bit?

This morning I was listening to LifeWay Women Devotions and I came across Tammie Head. I have never heard her speak before, but this morning, her words were what I needed to hear.

We are between two worlds. We are set in here for a reason. We are always between praise and warfare, just as Jesus was and I need to be okay with that. Not only okay with it, but able to recover from one quickly to move to the next.

I say I need to be able to, but I will never be able to on my own. I must always have my face fixed on Jesus. I must always stay fixed on Him. Where my face is fixed, my body and mind will follow.

About Teresa Neal

I am a Jesus girl. I have been redeemed by his blood and his love. I am also a wife, mother, daughter, aunt, sister, employee, friend, searcher, grace receiver, mercy needer and stumbler. I am fully in love with our God. I cannot do anything without him, although I try all too often. I write about the things Jesus is doing in my life, about what the Holy Spirit whispers to my soul, my struggles with depression, anxiety and OCD, and sometimes my family.
