I know several others have expressed experiencing an attack on their minds lately, namely in the form of heavy doubts. I know I'm experiencing tiredness, like I'm just weary. However, I don't necessarily feel it is a spiritual attack (though it can lead to one) but rather a result of intense intercessory-type prayer, intense studying, and intense ministering. I need to log off and just worship and let Jesus renew me, but I start thinking... What if I'm missing something? Should I post something else on Facebook? etc etc. I want to continue "striving for the prize" but I know physically I have limits. Anybody else struggling with this?
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new!" (2 Cor 5:17)
I have been physically tired for awhile now. I did start eating better and that helped, but I'm tired. My daily prayer is for God to help me be patient as I wait. I so long to be completely rested. When we went on vacation this summer, I was able to step back and just relax for a few days. It was a much needed break. I'm thankful for your contributions here, but maybe a day or two off would renew you. I think that is still "striving for the prize." After all, Jesus Himself took time away for refreshment. I will be praying for you, for everyone here.
Is 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
yardstick: @ew, re: US economy - it wont, but the pandemic is irrelevant. It has more to do with demographics. We have about 5 years of inflation before things calm down.

yardstick: @ew, re: annexing ukraine - it was never about annexing them when they proved intractable. Now it is only about razing the entire country to the ground and making it unliveable - no infrastructure. Then on to Warsaw, Bucharest, and Lithuania...

EnochWalked: @ys Great analysis, thank you. 5 years of inflation is plausible, but I'm curious about what demographic issues you think might lower GDP growth? Yes, sadly Russia knows it can't afford to fight against an insurgency there, so they have to depopulate it.

EnochWalked: www.jpost.com/opinion/article-710914 "Yair Lapid now has an undetermined amount of time as prime minister as he takes over from Naftali Bennett." "We also cannot expect the Lapid to retake control of the Temple Mount." ...

EnochWalked: ... "Abbas ... continues to spread the venal lie that Israel is threatening the mosques at the site. So now is the time to reassert absolute Israeli administration of the site, and to expand Jewish visiting privileges and even basic prayer rights"

EnochWalked: "America’s Dead Sea, as it’s also known" "If the salt content rises much further, to around 17%, it will be too much for the algae in the water, threatening the flies & ... shrimp that feed on it." "Demand for water...could outstrip supply as soon as 2040"

EnochWalked: I'm seeing the phrase "medication abortion" a lot recently, after the recent SCOTUS ruling, & I'm wondering if this isn't a closer prophetic match to "pharmakeia" than vaccines (which are supposed to make people healthy) or drugs (to make people 'happy').
