Spiritual Warfare and God
June 4, 2022
Good morning, dear God. I woke up at four-thirty again today. Today we are going food shopping. Today’s reading from the book God’s Promises for every day talked about “Spiritual Warfare against the devil.” It writes, “That’s why you must put on God’s full armor. Then on the day of evil, you will be able to stand strong. And when you have finished the whole fight, you will be standing strong.”So, stand firm with the belt of truth tied around your waist and the protection of right living on your chest. On your feet, wear the Good News of peace to help you stand strong. Also, use the shield of faith.” Ephesians 6:13-17 This passage shows me that God wants me to be strong and not to be afraid of the evil one. This armor of love, peace, kindness, joyfulness and good living is God’s word. The devil wants my soul, but I have the Lord who just said, “Ask, and I will be there when trouble arises. I don’t fear the devil. I pity the evil one. According to the Bible, we have “A Spiritual Warfare” coming. I need to stay close to you, Jesus. As you promised, you will not leave me like an orphan.
Since I started writing you letters last year, Sweet Jesus, my cup has been full of unconditional love, joy, peace, compassion, and protection, and at the same time, I’m learning the Psalms in the bible. I need to do a fearless inventory of myself. I’m working on “Resentments” each day, and a new resentment comes up. I wrote them out, which I started a month ago. It’s my first time reading and writing a fourth, but with your love Jesus and my fellowship, my life began to change when Terri, my sponsor who has helped me get closer to you, God. And she doesn’t know how much she’s helped and how much I love her, So I call her “Sunshine” every morning we talk for an hour on Facetime.
In the community, I have the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions book. Having a sponsor to help you walk through these steps is terrific. You can’t do the steps by yourself. Believe me. I’ve only read the steps in the book on my own, never interested in them. I was an atheist for so many years during my sobriety. I struggled with you, Jesus. I’m sorry I was suborned, arrogant, self-righteous, and did not believe in you, God. The twelve steps guided me to a better life. And you are a big part of my life, and I love you, sweet Jesus. Thank you.
