“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” -Ephesians 6:12
I am a fighter. With every inch of my being I am a fighter. I have fought for every single thing I ever thought I could lose. Every relationship, friendship, possession. I fight.
But as I grow older, I realize how not everything is worth fighting for.
How spending time, effort, and energy on something or someone that is no good for you can kill you slowly.
It is becoming the hardest/best decision I have made yet. & one that has involved the most growing pains. It isn’t easy to change yourself. To change everything you’ve ever stood for.
But God did not make me to be a weary soul. Worn out by fighting for things I have no business being involved with. He did not make me to be angry and hurt by trying to make things work that just weren’t meant to.
He made me to be a fighter. But for the things worth fighting for.
The things I can feel in my heart that are worth it. The people that I know need my love. That which brings me joy and/or makes myself or others better.
Sometimes we (or maybe just me) imprison ourselves with the belief that if we don’t fight, we are bad people. Good people fight for everything, especially others, right?
But that belief could not be further from the truth.
Fight for what you know is right. But don’t push yourself to do those things that you know are not. No matter what others say or think. Don’t waste your time on that which was not meant for you!
Focus on where God is leading you, and you will never be led astray.
P.S. I am still learning to do this myself. ❤ ^
