Don’t stop dreaming and my Kindle book on Ireland!

Our beautiful daughter Leah at the Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

When I realized this week how long it’d been since I blogged here at BethJones.net, I felt dismayed. I could give you a million excuses for why, but it boils down to the usual: I’ve been busy. Everyone is, though, right?

But here’s what has been happening in my life recently:

  • I went on a week-long trip to Ireland with our daughter Leah in September 2018;
  • I started a new part-time Administrative Assistant job in October 2018. I’m no longer there as of this week, as my season there has ended and God has new things for me to do now;
  • I flew to Georgia to visit my sister Maria and her family and to Florida to spend time with my friends Kim, Pat, and their kids at Christmas 2018;
  • Through a friend’s influence, I spoke and gave my testimony at a church;
  • I went back to Florida this year in the spring for several days, to visit Kim and her family and to enjoy a much-needed beach marathon (the ocean is my place of peace and refilling);
  • I wrote a Kindle eBook about Leah’s and my trip to Ireland with beautiful pics, which is now live on Amazon. You can get it here;
  • Right now I’m working on writing my first children’s book about Leah’s and my cats, Jax and Natalya! This is unfamiliar territory for me. For years Ray and Leah have been encouraging me to write a children’s book. I kept saying I didn’t know how, but now I finally am! As writers, we need to stretch and push ourselves, to hone our craft. We’ll see how it goes! I’m asking Leah, who is now taking college graphic design courses, to design the front cover. I pray she does; she’s an amazing artist! I’m excited about this new venture.

I’ve also been going through more intense spiritual warfare the last several years. Satan never seems to stop. Please say a prayer for me and my family. Christ has the victory, amen!

One thing I want to encourage you to do: Don’t stop dreaming!

God can make your biggest, most impossible dreams come true, as Leah and I are living proof from our trip to Ireland!

Let me know if you need prayer, too. I’ll be happy to pray for you! God is a mighty, prayer-answering God!

I’ll try to be more consistent blogging now! Let me know what topics interest YOU!

When you’re under spiritual attack

When you’re under spiritual attack

pensive womanToday one of my closest friends posted a status on Facebook that she was under attack today by the enemy, left and right. She was chewed out by one woman after she gave her some advice, someone had posted a very negative review of her book online, and another woman criticized my friend’s pic proudly showing her new tiny size after an amazing weight loss journey. She also got hit with a migraine which was making her throw up. (This list doesn’t include the other traumatic things which have happened throughout her life!)

What do you do when you’re under spiritual attack like this?

As created human beings, we have no power ourselves to fight Satan and his legion of demons. We can’t use earthly weapons to fight spirits. But as believers in Christ, we have powerful weapons of spiritual warfare that we can use against him to defeat him.

The Bible tells us in Cor. 10:3-5, “It is true, we live in a body of flesh. But we do not fight like people of the world.  We do not use those things to fight with that the world uses. We use the things God gives to fight with and they have power. Those things God gives to fight with destroy the strong-places of the devil. We break down every thought and proud thing that puts itself up against the wisdom of God. We take hold of every thought and make it obey Christ.”

The most powerful weapons we have are:

  • faith in Christ
  • The Word of God
  • Prayer
  • Worship of God
  • The blood of Jesus, our testimony, and denying self.
  • Satan can’t stand against your faith in Jesus when you are covered in the blood of Jesus. He may try to attack you, but no weapon formed against you will prosper. (Isaiah 54:17)

    When Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, the weapon Jesus chose was the Word of God. (Mark 9:1-13)

    In the Garden of Gethsamane, Jesus prayed so he would be able to face his final hour of distress on earth at the Cross to fulfill God’s Divine purpose. (Mark 14:32-42)

    The army of Israel was led by the worshippers marching around Jericho before the walls fell down. (Joshua 5:13-6:27)

    You have all these weapons and more to defeat the enemy, no matter what battle you are facing. The battle belongs to the Lord! (2 Chronciles 20:15)
