Lacking...but equiped in Christ

As of recently I have allowed the enemy to attack me and throw me into a pit, of sorts. I am one who is prone to guilt, not just the "oops, that was foolish," but "I am such a miserable failure, useless and lacking." The enemy, of course, uses this against me. He is called, in the book of Revelation, 'The Accuser of the Brethren."
And so, I must come back to the Word, where I find help in time of need.
"May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen." Hebrews 13:21
I would be so lost without my Shepherd.

I fall hard too and seem to be particularly sensitive to the accusations of the enemy which come my way day and night. Hold fast in resisting him with "it is written..." speaking the word out loud, singing praises in the midst of the accusations... defying his accusations by running to the throne of grace. I'm with you! I'm praying for you! He is faithful!

wow. I just read up on all that you have been through in the last couple weeks. You are in the midst of battles, far beyond you can imagine- of course you are feeling the effects of the enemy! I will stand in prayer for you and lift your arms as you continue to persevere. I pray Peace to reign in your heart and confidence in His power and love. Blessings on your family during all of this and then the new transition as you add another member. Grace and mercy falls freely on all of us, receive, receive, receive.
love, serenity
