Guts and grace

Its Monday morning, and I’m heading into school. Instead of the hustle and bustle of kids whizzing to and from their lockers this is what I’ll see instead.

It’s a modern day ghost-town.

It’s guilt.

And grief.

And guts.

And grace.

And suddenly I feel like I’m penning a country music song from the 90’s.

It’s the unknown.

But the thing is God does know. God knows the future, so every time fear rises up within me I have a choice to make.

Fight back with scripture or let fear win.

I’m gonna fight back. I’m gonna pick up the sword and shield that God provided me with, and I’m gonna go straight up ninja.

“10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.“ Ephesians 6:10-11
