Opposition, resistence, struggle……These words accurately describe the way I feel right now.  Lately, it feels like I have been walking against the wind.  Everywhere I turn, something else is looking to bloody my nose.  Every decision I make has consequences, none of which I want to deal with.  The fighting is relentless and my faith grows weary at times.  This morning I was in the midst of one of those weary moments and I read Psalm 92:10-12.  For those who make the Lord their refuge, “No evil shall befall you , Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.  In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against the stone.”

My challenge is surrendering an allowing God to be my refuge.  I tend to want to muscle through the fights of life, even when I know I can’t win them on my own.  That simply exhaust me physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  I was not designed by my Creator to fight this fight by myself.  None of us were!  My prayer today is that God would continue to use the fires of life to refine my character as I  continue to struggle with the issue of total surrender.
