Remember —  this is no afternoon picnic

"And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels." Ephesians 6:10-12 The Message

MY God is strong - i should run to Him all day every day.
His will is for me is strength - the creator of moons and stars wants me to be strong ... sounds easy for the creator of all things.
I should pick up what the Master has made for me - He has even provided me with the tools i need to live this little life.
Put them to use - i will be able to handle anything the devil throws my way
Remember, this is no afternoon picnic - life is a nonstop journey that is tough and requires us to fight.
Playing for keeps - everything i face today has potential for life and death ... i choose life!

the devil tries to kill me everyday. However, God brings life through grace and love. satan has no chance with me! i am determined to live the way God wants me to live and view this little dance through life as an adventure with the King! An adventure with the King ... a journey with eternal life and death at stake.
