The Millennial Warrior The Sword of the Spirit   And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. Ephesians 6:17-18 The sword of the spirit is both an offensive and defensive weapon. The rest of the armor is for protection, “defensive” from the fiery darts of the…..

The Millennial Warrior The shield of faith   Above all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. Faith is the key that opens the power we need to bind and loose in spiritual warfare.  We take the negative thoughts of our enemy captive and meditate on those of our father. The enemy’s fiery darts that are thrown towards us daily are fear, shame, unworthiness, unforgiveness, rejection,…..

The Millennial Warrior Shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace   Shod means to “bind under” or “strap on”. I have found this to be my favorite piece of armor. I have been known to lay my head on my pillow and sleep like a baby when all hell is raging around me. This peace truly does defy all understanding. This basically is telling us to choose to live a peaceful existence, and be willing to…..

The Millennial Warrior The Breastplate of Righteousness   The Roman solders use to put on breastplates made of Iron, copper or chain mail to protect their vital organs, predominately their heart and lungs. The same is true for us, the breastplate of righteousness protects our heart and soul from the fiery darts of the enemy. These fiery darts are thoughts and imaginations that produce bad feelings about yourself or others. Thoughts such as fear, shame, unworthiness, unforgiveness, rejection, bitterness, smoldering…..

The Millennial Warrior The Armor of God   I gird my waist with the spirit of truth (I accept your word as truth, I reject anything that does not line up with what you say on the subject) I put on the breastplate of righteousness (I ask that you help me make the correct decisions daily to remain righteousness before you) I shod my feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace (I will walk in peace and be…..

The Millennial Warrior The Weapons of Warfare   I am in awe of this generation. They are fearless, technical, creative, and curious. They are light-years ahead of where I was at their age. The Millennials have had access to the answer to any question, immediately, at their fingertips, 24-7. I grew up in a generation who had to go to the library when curious about a subject matter. Some individuals were lucky enough to own a set of Britannica encyclopedias,…..

The Millennial Warrior Preface   I recently visited with a group of nurses I worked with for many years and was introduced to the name “Millennial” used to describe our current generation Y. I was aware of the obvious differences in the current generation and mine, but had no idea a name had been assigned with a set of attributes and flaws. I must admit I felt as if I had climbed out from under a rock, but I also…..

A spiritual revolution Be mindful! Five   The definition of mindfulness is being aware of where you are and what your doing, without being distracted by the events occurring around you. We are all guilty of physically being in a place, while our thoughts are elsewhere. When this occurs, we are not totally showing up for the event or individual before us. The most important exercise one must master to establish spiritual transformation is to learn to be totally present…..

I’m stepping out! Join a support group My dear mother use to say, “Tell me who your friends are, and I will tell you who you are.” While I accept the fact that I am not a mirror image of my friends, I feel we share a common belief system. Point being, like attracts like. If you are accustomed to exhibiting bad behavior on a regular basis, you will attract, and gravitate towards the bottom feeders. If you wish to change…..

I’m stepping out! Shhhh I  feel its important not to recount our past behavior for the rest of our lives. We need to share our shameful behavior from our past with a qualified, trustworthy individual, heal and move on. I know this is contrary to most belief systems. The reason I feel we must not recount our past behavior for the rest of our lives is, we are identifying with the broken individual of our past. If we identify with the broken individual…..
