much at stake..

It was this morning when I realized the battle was much bigger than I have given it credit. In between the the washing of hair, lotions and shoe choices.. are you almost ready world changers? Hair over head I drop my dryer to the ground.. and proceed to put product in it. Need to Breathe was blaring so it was only by the grace of God that I even heard it.

A slow hissing.. coming from my hair dryer laying on the carpet in my bedroom. A little puff and the thing was smoking, an inevitable fire destroying everything in its path.  I unplugged it. Took it to the door and chucked it out on the lawn. where it sits right now.

On the way to church it hits me. Only by the grace of God was the rapid succession of loss diverted. It makes me sick of what could have been, but even more grateful for what is. This battle of good and evil is ginormaous. Evil only wins when it distracts you from Good. Oh that my soul will stay true to Him having a keen ear to hear evil.. even if it's just a whisper of smoke. Much is at stake. Much.

Pleading for grace, that the ears of my heart stay ever in tune to the Spirit's quiet leading. Thank you so much for this timely word, Kelly. And praise be to God that catastrophe was averted in your home today!
