Have you ever felt like when things are finally falling in to place, and you begin to feel an excitement about the future, then WHAM! every demon in hell is released on you!!!! This has been been the case for me lately. I am reminded of a excerpt from one of my all time favorite books, Captivating.
"..the long and sustained assault on femininity, on woman, is part of something much larger, the most wicked force the world has ever known. The Enemy bears a special hatred for Eve. If you believe he has any role in the history of this world, you cannot help but see it.
The Evil One had a hand in all that has happened to you. If he didn't arrange for the assault directly then he made sure he drove the message of the wounds home into your heart. He is the one who has dogged your heels with shame and self-doubt and accusation. He is the one who has done these things in order to prevent your restoration. For that is what he fears. He fears who you are; what you are; what you might become. He fears your beauty and your life-giving heart.
You really won't understand your life as a woman until you understand this:
You are passionately loved by the God of the universe.
You are passionately hated by his Enemy.
As so, dear heart, it is time for your restoration. For there is One greater than your Enemy, One who has sought you out from the beginning of time. He has come to heal your broken heart and restore your feminine soul."
"Shame", "self-doubt" and "accusation".....Those are the exact names of those stinking triplet imps that have been doggin' my steps for days! I hope this helps and encourages you to celebrate your feminine, life giving heart and do not believe the assaults from the triplets!
