When life hands you lemons...pucker up!
So many times we face life's day to day struggles and we are just not prepared to handle them. I know myself that even a flat tire or a busted water pipe in my yard can mess up my entire day or week. Why do we let these minor things get to us so badly? It's because we are all human and created to be very emotional beings. But, there is a solution! It's right there in black and white! How could we have let this slip by us? We are just not dressed for the occassion. Ephesians 6 10:-13 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand agaist the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Plain and simple..things are going to happen, but we must be prepared so that we won't let it shake us up. God has given us the tools we need to handle life's ups and downs. So, what are you waiting for? Get dressed and ready to pucker up!
