As I sat thinking about my life and all the pain I’ve been experiencing over the last few years, I started to giggle and soon my giggle turned into a laugh. I laughed because I realized that enemy is so dumb! He’s been attacking me for years. He’s been attacking my self-esteem. “You’re so ugly.” “You’re so fat.” ” No one will ever love you.” He’s been attacking my worth. “You don’t have a good job.”  “You can’t take care of yourself” “Yeah, you sleep in a bed, in a room, but you don’t have a home.” “You haven’t had a home since your mom died.” “Everyone who says they love you abandons you.” He’s attacked my finances, but I’m not going to talk about that. And after all these attacks, all this hard work, all his plotting and planning. Here I am. Battered, bruised, worn, weary. Yet, redeemed, victorious, restored, here. Here. Here.

    I LOVE this – it’s hard sometimes to see the truth behind the attacks but once we do, we can be victorious!

    Your life sounds rough. I like how you said you are here “battered, bruised, worn, weary. Yet, redeemed, victorious, restored, here.” So glad we have God too.

    Have I told you lately that I love you? Better yet, so does HE! / But, you know that. Keep looking up, kid.

    Amazing post Kimmie! I am also told these lies “you’re not good enough for your husband”, “you’re too fat”, “you’re unsuccessful”… but somehow compared to the sweet words God whispers into our ears are so true, gentle, and loving. Thank you for the reminder! You are beautiful!

    Thanks for posting. It’s so true! The enemy is nothing but a liar! You are in fact the opposite of everything he’s told you! Beautiful girl! I love you! 🙂
