Synonyms: ward off, fend off, deflect, hold off, block
It’s a constant battle,
You are always at war.
They claw and scratch;
Ripping at your soul.
Your insides are rattled,
Chaos to your core.
Ruthlessly they attach;
Fight against them!
Fend them off!
He is on your side.
As they latch on your hem;
Point and scoff.
Don’t allow any squirm.
Help is always provided…
God thrives inside.
Quite obvious the topic choice. After reading the synonyms my first thought was… what lurks in the darkness. They come in many forms; we constantly fight them off. But for me I don’t fear them, because I have the light of God inside of me. Don’t fear because God loves everyone!!
Whenever I think about battling darkness, I think of that intense novel, This Present Darkness, by Frank E. Peretti. I love that book! But a piece of advice…don’t read it at night. I stayed up until 4am when I read it the first time.
Have a strong and faithful day!! ❤️
That’s someone darkness does not want to mess with. You are toast, if you do dare.
You are all probably thinking… “what just happened…???”
Don’t worry. I should be fine. Hopefully…
I went to mom’s group, left baby at home with dad, and then returned to a sweet baby.
But around 3pm…she switched into her chaotic terrible two disaster.
The poem above, I actually don’t know if it even counts…but it was the best my brain can manage.
Imagine everything going completely wrong in your entire life, while adding a screaming angry two year old. Then roll of of it into a single day, and you will achieve the second half of my day yesterday.
…I am happy it is currently bed time. Because that means I will soon have some alone, peace and quiet time! 😳
Enjoy your quiet time. Because once kids come into the mix you will miss it terribly. Don’t get me wrong I love her dearly, it’s just sometimes she pushes my buttons.
At least I’ve been told, that once they reach 5 years old that life changes for the parent…so meaning, I have 2-3 years of utter chaos to go….
“Love is a complicated thing”…that’s what most people say.
I don’t; fake love, forced love, or even a wanted love that God indicates it’s not the right time, of course, are complicated. Believing that love is there when it’s blatantly not, is always complicated. Or forced love…forced love is almost exactly like fake love but it feels worse. Because if it has to be forced, then occasionally the other person is not faithful, or they are manipulating you for their own gain. But the one that got me countless times was the wanted love…wanting, but God implying it was not the one for you or that it is not the time. Wanting something so badly and constantly being shut down or cut off, also, if you ignore the signs given to you, you result to either fake or forced.
But don’t fret; there are many roosters in the world, but to find one that is loyal you must have outside help. For me when the right rooster came along it was easy; we were perfect. It had its ups and downs but my rooster stayed with me through the toughest of times. God helped me find my rooster and without His help, I was only finding fake or manipulating ones.
Now my rooster and I have been married almost 6 months, and we are thinking about having some miniature ones. It won’t be until we are a little more settled, but soon, we will have baby chickens or roosters running around.❤️
I know this post is a little odd, but I wanted to tie in the daily prompt to my daily drawings…I won’t do this every day, but I thought it would be fun for a while.
