Life is War
The above drawing is from a novel I wrote many years ago. The novel, while published, didn't do anything at all, but it was a great test of my faith and got me deeper into writing. At any rate, the book is about warfare. it was a fantasy book that took spiritual warfare concepts and put them in a Roman warfare context. I was using Ephesians chapter 6 as my guide.
Even though the book didn't do well at all, the fact is that the concepts in my book are real. We really are in a spiritual battle every day. Alicia have been reminded constantly about how foreign a territory we're in right now spiritually. We are hopeful for orders that will place us near a cystic fibrosis care center for our daughter and honestly, my faith is wavering a little.
So it was really nice of God to run me past this little drawing I put together over 7 years ago. I love how he reminds me that he is in charge, and yet that I am in a war zone. I pray that you all will remember that we are in a war zone now. If you don't believe that you are in spiritual warfare, then you're just losing, because we're all in it whether we want to be or not.
