I’m Ready to Fight – Beautiful Ashes And A Message From Sarah

http://www.mistyleask.com/im-ready-to-fight/ 

I Am Ready To Fight : By  Misty Leask  

From Sarah : I need to start posting about the ongoing Battles I have. I have a number of them. Depression is the major one because that contributes to all the rest of them. It is harder to fight for anything when you are fighting depression. 

So I will be sharing my battles as well. 

Depression

Lupus And Fibromyalgia.

My Weight 

Always Being Hot 

My Horrible Mood Swings Not Caused By Depression

Loneliness 

Isolation

My Marriage

From Misty:

Living far away from my family has never been easy for me, but God blessed me with the best friends I could ever ask for. Thanks to them, He got my attention. I was told quite a few times that I needed to watch, War Room, by a couple of my besties. I didn’t take the time to do so until this week. It was life changing. God opened my eyes to see that I needed my own war room because I had stopped talking to Him due to the many distractions around me. I have friends and family that need me fighting for them, my children need me fighting for them. I’m losing the parenting battle many days because I’m not fighting with the right weapons! I’ve been leaving behind the biggest advocate I have and trying to find my way on this parenting journey alone. It’s no wonder that I’ve struggled with depression so much the last few months.

CHALLENGE: Giving Thanks for the Ordinary

Walking with My Saviour

Welcome to the Giving Thanks for the Ordinary Challenge!

I am joining Women Living Well, this year in this fun challenge. Why don’t you join me too?

In November in America, they celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving, so it is fitting that we apply 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 in our homes this month.  It says:

 “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances;for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

I believe we will be greatly blessed by living this out in our homes. Let’s do this together!

This month, I want to keep our candles going and each time we see the flicker of the candle, give thanks to God for something ordinary.  I’m not talking about the big things like our home, family and jobs (which I am deeply grateful for!) but the ordinary things we take for granted –…
