War Room!

Just another fun filled day in the Devo camp!  It still amazes me just how much they manage to pack into a six to eight hour time span, like they do!  I ran a bunch of errands this morning, Lowe's, Home Depot, Stop & Shop, 4 Towns produce, and then back to Lowe's, because I got the wrong stuff!  After the errands we walked up to the Five Star Bakery to meet Nicole for lunch, hung out there for an hour and a half, and then walked back home, for something you'd never guess!  Charlotte was pooped out and needed a short rest!  Say what?  She doesn't often admit it, but very seldom actually does it!  She must have been REALLY tired!  It's amazing she doesn't crash more often than she does, but there's a lot to be said about the strength you get of the supernatural kind!  Praise be to the Lord for all that He gives us! Charlotte, Devon, and I did get to the movies at four to see the new hit Christian movie called War Room!  It's a pretty cool movie about prayer and letting Jesus fight all your battles for you! The movie dealt with a lot of real life situations and how prayer and turning to Jesus is pretty much, our only chance of successfully mending all the brokenness in our lives!  War Room made it abundantly clear that we can't "fix" anybody else, let alone ourselves!  We need to spend quiet time with Jesus, asking for His forgiveness, and surrendering ourselves completely to Him!  And the movie also emphasized that satan is lurking, but "taking up" with Jesus guarantees his exit!  I highly recommend the movie to everyone, because it deals with all the same issues that most of us do!  I'm not sure the non believers will buy into the premise of Jesus healing our difficulties, but I say to them, "if not Jesus, then whom?"  Without God, the world sometimes offers little hope!  And without hope, you might as well turn off the lights, because the party's over!  And as a little side note, we watched four "coming attractions", and three of the four were faith based movies!  I like the trend!  It's about time Hollywood waked up!  

17 You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.' ". ( 2 Chronicles 20:17)

There are no battles that we have to face alone!  The Lord promises to be with us, no matter what!  If we trust Him, He will deliver!  Goodnight and God bless you all!  Dana. 

p.s. Devon is doing well, and he said that he also enjoyed the movie!  Hopefully he picked up something that he can use on his journey!
