We are just talking. No harm in talking. Besides it is via social media. A little innocent flirting is all. So what we are both married. We met long before either of us walked down the aisle. We are allowed to have friends, geesh. Nothing criminal is happening here. Just two adults getting reacquainted after so many years apart. Where is the harm in that? Come on people nothing to see here. Keep it moving.
I'll put this on my credit card. No the whole thing. Ring me up. Better yet, put this here on it too. They were on sale. Almost passed me up. Good thing I was on the lookout for great deals. What do you mean "card declined". Try again. Hurry up before I get mad. Better yet. keep your stuff! I will spend my Benjamins elsewhere. Give me back my card! You can't have that! Give it back I say. I don't care what some auto recording said. Give me back my card!! You are messing with the wrong one!
Get up honey time to go to service. Church service silly. Now wake up. What do you mean you are not going? You promised. This week you promised. I hate being there without you. Please. Do it for me. Get up lazy bones. All right, stay right there then. What's your excuse this time? I know before you say it, there is no excuse. Well I will see you when I get back. But I am telling you, this is getting really old. This is not what I signed up for. Not at all. I am tiring praying for your soul. Hell, I am tired period!
Hi I am back and this time I brought pictures. I want her lips, her hips and tummy. See this one, I want her chin. Wouldn't her chin look good on me? I think so. Let's schedule it. How quickly can I be transformed? This body I am in is not working for me. Make me over doctor. Work your magic!
The devil has come to seek and destroy and he will by any means necessary. He does not fight fair but he fights with whatever we hand over to him. Our low hanging fruit; like weakness, social pressure, addictive mindsets and addicted behaviors. Our self-hatred. No need for him to strike in the open when he can easily creep up on us and fight from the sidelines. Discreetly and without being noticed. That way we won't fight back and he can capture more of us. Quietly stealing our spirit. He turns us on ourselves and then he knows he has us.
He does a TKO on us before we ever saw it coming. He does this by planting seeds of doubt in our spirit. He does this by weakening our minds and by trying to come between Christ and us. He is conniving and clever. He causes us to love the lures of this world. More and excess has become our calling cry. And while we are crying out against our situation we ignore the one mighty cry from the wilderness. The one who will answer. By then we are so distracted in our quicksand, we become lost out there. We become consumers of our dread. Fasting and prayer is but a flicker too dim to imagine.
We make it easy for him. No wonder he is so successful in snaring his prey. Maybe it is not the devil is a liar, but rather the lies we tell ourselves. We hand him the weapons he uses to defeat us.
