Living By Faith Alone

As I run my fingers slowly over my throat, over the place 
my thyroid gland would be, I feel a  place that is sore, but 
I know it is a lie from the father of lies.  To know this 
knowledge I am glad.
So I say in the Name of Jesus this unwelcome visitor of 
pain must leave, it is not welcomed here.
I realize that as time has been marching on, at what seems 
to be at a quickened pace these days... that I have been having 
to banish every and all spiritual foes which enter the portal of my mind.  
Those bad thoughts are sometimes likened to insects who are 
flying through a house, but they are not allowed to stay there, 
to make their home anywhere inside my mind or body.
So I am learning the value of cleaning one's house, that includes 
the houses you see, and the houses you don't see to pave the way 
for the future houses, places where we live and place where we'll be.
To keep them clean so when forever comes to collect us, we will 
have been excellent stewards of all manifest Blessings He continues 
to give us.
All of us need to learn the lessons of walking by faith and not by 
what things look like, to handle the further responsibility which 
Jesus does help us with.
