Putting On The Full Armour


Ok, I admit yesterday's post was a real downer to read. I apologize for that but feelings are feelings, and at that point in time I let my emotions over ride me. But after a time of reflection, I got mad. I got angry mad. What the devil tried to steal from me is unacceptable. I will not let him win. After all, I am more than a conqueror through CHRIST Who strengthens me! If GOD be for me, who can be against me!!

This morning an old familiar song was brought back to my mind and ears. The lyrics are so fitting for what I am feeling right now.


I WANT IT ALL BACK
by Tye Tribbett

You may have thought, you won that last round
You may have laughed (cuz) I almost fell down
Maybe you think I give up easy
But its not ovah, I got more in me

You thought I stopped, you thought I sat down
But I am standin', you made me mad now!
You got some things, I think you owe me
I've come to get back everything that you stole
(Chorus) I want it all back

You hit me hard, I should be knocked out
Things I've been through, don't even wanna talk about
You crossed the line (this time) you violated me
I want revenge (I want everything back from) A to Z
The battle's not mine, the battle is the Lord's
In the name of JESUS, I'm takin' it by force

(Chorus) I want it all back

If you only knew what I was gonna be
After the storm you wouldn't have even bothered me

(And now I'm) stronger
(And I got more) power
(I'm a little bit) wiser
(And I got more) strength
(I got thee) anointing
(Got God's) favor
(And we're still) standing
I want it all back

Give me my stuff back, give me my stuff, give me my stuff back
I want it all
I want that,
What about your family and all your self-esteem, even your destiny?
What about the joy you tasted and the time you wasted, do you want it back?
What about your place in God and all your faith in God, even the ways of God?
What about your hopes and dreams and your communities, even your kids and teens?
I want that –want that –want that –want that
I want it all back

The enemy hit me hard, and for a short while I let him knock me down. I may have been pressed down but I have the victory! Look out Satan...I'm hot on your tail...I'm taking back everything you stole from me!

Proverbs 6:30-31 "Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house."

Love the song! I just read both of your posts- yesterday's and today's. Ironically I am in the process of writing a similar post for my own blog. What I know (and need to remember)at the end of the day is that while "man" may not always think I'm worth the fight.Christ died for me because He knows I'm worth it. So good for you for not giving the devil his due. God Bless!

Karinann,

Thank you so much for visiting me. You are so right...CHRIST thinks I'm worth it so that's all that counts.
