When Sh** Hits The Fan, Hit Your Knees, Then Stand!

This past week, our family had some major bumps. The truth is that it honestly really really sucks and it may be tough for us for awhile.  But one of the first things I did after I heard what happened, was pray. 

Yes, I'm going through the normal emotions of anger, grief, sadness, a since of loss, and anxiety at what lies ahead.  I'm human.

I don't know of anyone in this whole world that isn't going through some sort of trial or tribulation in their life. They may not talk about it, but rest assured that something is always going on. I believe that most people would agree with me, if it isn't one thing then it's another.  Something happens, you think everything is fine and then BOOM!! Hit again. :(

So what are we supposed to do when this happens? As the title of my post states, WHEN SH** HITS THE FAN, HIT YOUR KNEES, THEN STAND!

We need to remember as Christians that once you are saved, it doesn't mean that nothing bad will ever happen to you again and you will whisked away to some Utopian society. Nope, exactly the opposite.  

Our reality extends beyond our 5 senses. The supernatural exists and there's a very real battle happening right this very moment.  

Ephesians 6:
10A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12For wec are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
13Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. 14Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 15For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.d 16In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.e 17Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.f
