I'm siding with satan on this one.....(again)


Sorry for the repeat posts this week....I'm not coughing quite as much, but I still feel lousy. Thanks for reading the repeats.

----------------------------------------------

I’m a nothing.
A big, fat zero.
A nobody, zilch, nada, nil.

Aren’t those the lies we hear whispered in our ears on a daily basis? Lies satan wants us to live and believe? Lies that will keep us beaten down and discouraged?

Well, guess what? This time I’m siding with satan! Yep, I’ve crossed the line and I’m agreeing with him.

But, I know a truth satan doesn’t get. You see, I've decided it's good to be a zero.

A zero, in mathematics, is a placeholder. It has no value. It only represents a place. It is a position holder. Alone, zero actually is nothing. But with even the lowest number, number one, standing in front of it, it suddenly has value!

So, satan, while I’ll agree that I’m nothing, with The One standing before me, and with my willingness to be a placeholder in His Kingdom, well, I’ve got a greater value than you’ll ever know!

Thank you for the repeats. It is hard to read all the previous blogs when you come into the game late. You are really hitting home this week with everything that I need. The ONE is working through you. Thanks for your prayers also.

Get to feeling better!

This is so good, Robin. Praying that you will be feeling better soon. It sure zapped Mandy, and hardly anything slows her down....I don't think anything slows you down either. :)
