Today is Ash Wednesday.
Today is the end of the lies, deceit and deception of satan.
Today is a new beginning on a road that is paved with truth and power.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
I will lay down the things that have been holding me to the ground; the things that have been suffocating my Creator God inside of me. Depression, addiction, and feelings of inadequacy. I will put off guilt, shame and regret and put on love, humility and faith. I will taste and see that the Lord is good. I will only eat the Words of Truth. I will cover my ears, eyes and mouth with discipline and I will carry the Sword of Truth at all times. I will be precise, swift and deft with my sword, sure to make each cutting stroke count for God. I will stand on the promises of God and hold the Lord’s banner high over my head. When my arms tire, I know who will be at my side to help me see the battle through until morning. I can’t win this battle on my own and I must rely on the strength of the Lord. So, before I go into battle I will place one hand over the other, interlock my fingers, get down on my face and pray for the Spirit of God to fall on me and fill me with His glory.
Today is the day that I take my life back.
A new beginning full of the goodness of God.
God looked over everything he had made;
it was so good, so very good!
It was evening, it was morning—
I am good. I am very good. I will not let the lies creep into my head any longer.
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
I. AM. MARVELOUSLY. MADE.
I will worship YOU all the days of my life!
Today the darkness will be extinguished by the Light.
Thank You, Father God, for the Light, the glorious, marvelous Light.
