Get Up

I woke up thinking about when I was in the middle of the fight for our marriage

It felt like I was on the front lines of a battle…which I was and bricks were being hurled at me trying to hit me in the face

Never my body

Just my face

As I would stand there God gave me divine strength and insight to know when to just stand there and take it like a man and when to duck like a girl

I learned what the Bible meant when it talks about praying without ceasing

And you are going to learn this skill too

It is a learned skill

I also woke up thinking about those of you who are divorced

How difficult it is for you still

Not all of you


Some of you were thinking

By divorcing

The battle would be over

But you have begun to realize it was a trick

And you are still standing on the front lines

Taking brick after brick

The bricks are different

But they are

Just as heavy


Just as sharp

I am sure you have learned what it means to pray without ceasing

But God is not finished with this part of your life yet and he wants to teach you

He wants to teach you

What bricks to take

And when you too need to duck

My friend you are not off the hook for this

God still has great plans for you

Plans for you to become a skilled warrior

Listen to me

He is going to come help you

I promise

I think you know

He is not mad at you

And He is not

But you have to start fighting

So you have to get up


I Peter 4:7

The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.

1 Peter 5:8

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
