I’ve heard the stories from my team… When they first felt the evil here… Felt it watching them from the darkness… But was something I’d never felt …. In the 3 years I’ve worked here… Until last night…. When for the first time since moving here, I checked the 3 locks on the back and two on the front doors…twice before heading to my room to close this day.
Why last night did I feel this dark, heavy presence for the first time?
Is it that God is drawing me to Him more and I am listening? Maybe that I’m praying like never before? Maybe he can see as I can God working through the boys to minister and mentor our children here in the park… Maybe because last week for the first time my eyes held the gaze of a boy who confesses that demons live inside of him…and maybe because I have been praying for this boy and his family…
You probably think I’m being paranoid, right? Yea… That’s what he wants you and me to think! One of his methods is to convince us that he is not there… That no legion of demons and devils are wreaking havoc of our lives… Do not be mislead… He is real.. And he is there
Last night on my stomach with tears falling to the carpet… And champ snuggled close… I called out to God for HIS protection…. I read in His Word promises…
And this morning I awoke…. With thanksgiving and love for my Creator and Savior….
I anticipate many more moments as this…. So Church… Please don’t forget about us here at Countryside…. Pray
