My Three Choices

The enemy is real.

Satan hates God, seeking to steal the glory that He would get from our lives, when we are like His Son. And he hates families.

It sounds like I’m writing another part of the Lionproof series.

But I’m not.

I’m not, although I really, really wish I could.

It’s not surprising that, while I have been writing about the Devil prowling about, he has been unraveling my own family. He knows how to hit someone right where it hurts the most.

These past few weeks have been extremely difficult ones for me, as I’ve been trying to sort out some things and make some changes. Some changes were easy to make, while others were more difficult.

When we’re faced with the wicked one doing his awful work in our midst, we have three choices:

1. Put our head in the sand, to become apathetic and pretend he’s not there,

2. Surrender to his lies, temptations, and destruction (to just go with the flow,)

3. Or to engage him – to have our loins girt about with truth, have the breastplate of righteousness, and having done all, to stand.


I choose to stand.
I choose to engage, not put my head in the sand, or surrender.

That being the case, I am rearranging my life to wholly devote myself and my energies to my family, and thus will be spending far less time on the blog and my other writing. As the Lord allows, I will write.

I may, if the Lord allows, take the book I have written about second generation Christians, and offer it in Kindle format. My plan was to actually publish a hard copy, but this would require a lot of attention to many details that I am unable to attend to. When the book becomes available, I will let everyone know here.

You have all been a real blessing and an encouragement to me, and I covet your prayers as I make some changes and invest myself in my family.
