Fighting Back

Ugh! My mind was awhirl. I awoke way to early, hit with a reminder of one of the previous day’s failures, something I should not have said, or should have said or done differently, followed by a full-blown attack with me as the punching bag.

When this happens, we can evaluate what is true and decide what to do differently in the future, including whether an apology is needed. But, when our mind continues to hit the ‘replay’ button, we need to move from defense to offense!

Reading or quoting Scripture against our enemy is powerful. It was the weapon Jesus used when tempted by Satan in the wilderness. Other times we find victory in reminding the enemy who he is talking to. Hit it!

Because I am a child of the King,
I am saved.                (Acts 4:12)
I am forgiven.            (Acts 13:38)
I am justified.             (Acts 13:39)
I am a new creation. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
I am righteous.          (2 Corinthians 5:21)
I am redeemed.         (Titus 2:14)
I am called.                (Romans 8:28)
I am adopted.            (Ephesians 1:5)
I am known.              (1 Corinthians 8:3)
I am His.                     (Psalm 100:3)
I am blessed.             (Revelation 1:3)
I am heaven-bound. (2 Peter 3:13)
I am chosen.             (Colossians 3:12)
I am holy.                   (Colossians 3:12)
I am dearly loved … (Colossians 3:12)
By the great I AM!

“Fight the good fight”! (1 Timothy 6:12)

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used intentionally to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems, song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website will always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
