5-Week Sword Drill Challenge
Early on in my education, I was enrolled at a Christian school. Despite its humble size, it still carries a power-punch of childhood memories for me.
One such memory was the Sword Drills we use to have. We’d hold our Bibles up above our heads, waiting for the teacher to shout out a Bible verse, then we’d race to see who could find the passage the fastest.
… I want to be able to stand…
My struggle isn’t with him or whoever else, it’s with Satan…and he’s trying his best to get in and divide and conquer…
I’m tired of forgetting who the fight is really between…
…I’m tired of forgetting I’m wearing that armor.
I mean man, think about it…if we really looked more through those truthful eyes of knowledge and saw, in the midst of these moments, that we were actually battling against the spiritual forces of evil and not our loved ones, how many of us would do a little less crafting of witty comebacks and defending of selfish pride and a little more diving (with gratitude) into that suit of armor?!
Every Sunday will be the Scripture intro (usually late night once the kids are in bed & I’m happily sitting down!).
The remainder of the week will be devoted to memorization strategies and techniques that I’m trying and how they are working out for me.
I would really love to hear from you..let me know if you have any tips to share, input on the next weeks’ verses, etc etc….
