For whatever reason, this year has been harder than the last few. I know I have written about the mechanically and technical challenges our company has experienced, but not of the attacks of a new company that has badgered promoters to move from our company to theirs for their streaming needs. We were even told they intended to put all of their competition ‘out of business’.
Faith has been and will always be the biggest factor in our lives as Christ followers. It is difficult to hold on to the Lord when man is telling you to do something different. Man is success driven. Where is the next mountain to climb or the next area to be conquered? You are in control, you have to make the decisions, you are responsible for the outcome. These are the lies of the enemy of our souls.
Life is crazier today than it has ever been. The world seems to be spiraling out of control at every turn and the financial hits just keep on coming for our teams. Between lost jobs, a need to replace or repair equipment, it makes you want to go screaming into the night. If not that, at least you’d look at the circumstances of life and decide YOU need to do something to handle your problems.
I love our Fathers timing in how He speaks to me as an individual and us as His children. Since I started writing these supplemental devotionals, each time this particular devotional about perception comes through the rotation, it speaks specifically to my current situation.
