Good Morning Everybody !!!
As I sit here with my morning coffee, I was thinking about stuff, nothing in particular but just stuff going on in my life and in the lives of my family and friends. The days just roll in and out like the waves of an ocean. And depending on whether or not storms are blowing in or we are having calm sailing weather, is how people live their lives. Down here in the south, ya need to dress accordingly. We have all four seasons in one day. I have even heard people say that we have to roll with the punches. I have seen boxing matches before and they tend to get pretty bloody. I don’t think I want to be in a boxing match with life. Boxers have no armor, no protection at all from the hits and jabs from the opponent. Some people are going through life just in that way too.
When we become a child of the Most High God, we don’t have to live our lives as if we are in a boxing match with life. We are told in Ephesians 6:10-17 to put on the full armor of God. Each piece of the armor is listed in there and it tells what each piece of the armor is for. We are even told in Ephesians 6:12 why we are to wear this armor everyday, not just some days but everyday. And we are even told how to fight these battles of life. Therefore, I say, talking about me here, I am not willing to just roll with the punches. Time to dress accordingly.
