|For The Bruised And Battered|

At times we all feel as though we have been beaten down from every direction. We may feel alone and full of sorrow, perhaps angry and agitated because of our surroundings or those around us, or even as though we are being ignored by God. At times such as these we must remember we are weak when we do not keep faith in the Lord, for he is our strength.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? ~ Psalm 27:1
Ask the Lord to be your strength and ask that he will be your armor, to protect you from the evils of this world.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. ~Ephesians 6:11
Remind yourself of the many gifts and joys the Lord has given you and thank him for those. Seek the Lord and call out to him each time you feel moved to do so.
If you feel moved to pray, then pray. God may be placing something on your heart that is in his will to accomplish through you. It shouldn't matter where you are, what you are doing, or who you are with; the right time for the Lord may not seem convenient to you, but nothing can stand in the way of the Will of God.
Ask the Lord to be your guide and to help you make the choices that are part of his will for you. Open your life to God in every way, work with him in everything you do. Not for an eternal salvation, but out of obedience to ones master.
Grace be with you, mercy, and peace from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. ~ 2 John Verse 3.
