"The Seven Fights I Will Win in These Challenging Times" Spark from Jackie Waalen

I hope all is well with the First Lutheran Family and sending comforting thoughts to all. I provide a devotion to my staff everyday for uplifting strength- here is one we had recently:

The Seven Fights I Will Win in These Challenging Times:

I will fight to WORSHIP, 
instead of WORRY.

I will fight to FUEL FAITH, 
instead of FREAK OUT.

I will fight to ENCOURAGE, 
instead of ESCALATE within the stress.

I will fight to COME to JESUS, 
instead of CONDEMN what He’s allowing in our world.

I will fight to be ACTIVE, 
instead of APATHETIC.

I will fight to OVERFLOW, 
instead of being OVERWHELMED.

I will fight to MEDITATE on God’s WORD 
instead of MINIMIZE its POWER.

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.  You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows.  From the end of the earth, I will cry unto Thee, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. (Psalm 61:2)

Sending love and peace during this time—God is with us always!

Stay Well!
