Last week was the first installment of this post, if you haven't read it I encourage you to go here for that post.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. -John 10:10 (emphasis mine)
When I say the thief came to destroy me-I mean he came to destroy me. Though I had had been a believer for years and been a lover of the Word and knew and believed John 10:10, I never knew the depth until I stumbled into that season. Suddenly everything was scary. Nothing made sense. I would panic over nothing at all.
Because ultimately-if satan had my mind...he had me. So even if there really wasn't anything to fear or worry about at all he convinced me there was, and that was all it took to do me in. I was done. I was blindsided and done. In the boat on the darkest and stormiest of seas.
