Wednesday’s Woe - Holidays…or Hell-A-Days?

Wednesday’s Woe

Holidays…or Hell-A-Days?

Is the loss of our child our Garden of Gethsemane where Satan comes to attack us at the point of our deepest vulnerability?


…Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the Evil One.

~Ephesians 6:16 NIV


Holidays Or Hell/A/Days?

The Heavy Presence of Your Absence






“Be still…”


Two solid weeks of spiritual attacks,

anxiety attacks, then mind attacks

leave me exhausted in these holidays...

Holding onto God—in that I'm not lax—

just battling Satan and his horrid ways.

Baby step by baby step, exercise

and sleep. Eat well. Take vitamins. Breathe in

God; breathe out toxins. Get sunshine. Be wise.

Write feelings. Talk to God. His Word, weave in.

Cancel holidays. Take care of spirit.

Minimize any toxins coming in…

“God, hold me close; soothe fear in my spirit.

Cleanse me of known or any unknown sin.

Bind Satan in Jesus’ name.”


“Holy Spirit, Comforter, navigate

my grief, my path, my life into Your will.

Center my spirit in You.”


“Be still,

And know that I am God and that I’ll heal.”

“Today is Christmas Eve—Come Lord: Peace…be still.

Here’s my heart; for Your kingdom, take…and seal.”


The reticent volcano keeps

His never slumbering plan;

Confided are his projects pink

To no precarious man.

If nature will not tell the tale

Jehovah told to her,

Can human nature not survive

Without a listener?

Admonished by her buckled lips

Let every babbler be.

The only secret people keep

Is Immortality.

~Emily Dickenson

It’s such a little thing to weep,

So short a thing to sigh;

And yet by trades the size of these

We men and women die!

~Emily Dickenson


Last of all I want to remind you that

your strength must come from the Lord’s mighty power within you.

Put on all of God’s armor (truth, God’s approval, testimony of God’s work within you, faith , salvation, God’s Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God) so that you will be able to stand safe against all strategies and tricks of Satan.

For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against persons without bodies—the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world; and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world.

So use every piece of God’s armor to resist the enemy whenever he attacks, and when it is all over you will be standing up.
