A day doesn’t seem to go by where we don’t hear about some heinous act of evil.  A week ago we mourned with those in Charleston over their loss.  Today in France we see results of more evil, hateful minds.  The devil is  active even though he’s been defeated by the Son of God.  As followers of Christ, we must never forget that he continues to have the ability to infest souls and infect hearts with his ugly plans to win us back.

The devil is referred to as a roaring lion on the prowl – sneaking around in the shadows, waiting to devour his next victim.  Sometimes we try to diminish his power, but he is still alive and well. We may not see him as vividly as we have in these recent events.  He can wheedle his way into our thoughts, our words and our actions without a problem.  It’s enough to make even the staunchest quiver and fall.  We are all victims.

Our life here on this planet is will be filled with Satan’s influence until we succumb to death.  God has given us a free will.  We can choose to continue living an eternity in  the depths of the evil one’s kingdom. Consider this – hell will be like the news headlines of today multiplied to infinity, with no hope of relief.

The better choice is to trust in the power of God – know that He has taken the sting and finality out of death – provided a room for us in paradise – where the devil will have no power over us again.  Sounds too easy, doesn’t it?  It is!  That’s the beauty of it.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  1. Thank you Kathy. How we need to pray for those in the front line! There are many true Christ Warriors out there -standing for the Truth. Many of our own brothers and sisters on these pages – declaring the Word of God with courage and conviction. But it also makes us vulnerable to the wiles of the enemy, our Enemy. So let’s not become complacent. Another gritty post. Thank you.
