Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

I don’t see a demon behind every rock or bush. But I am aware that we are living behind enemy lines. And the enemy does not want a message of hope and freedom to gain any traction.

Tuesday, after the program, I wasn’t feeling well and decided to take a nap. About six hours later I finally got up because I HAD TO GET UP, if you know what I mean. A flu bug, food poisoning—I don’t know, but I had little strength to get out of bed and go to work.

Which caused me to think of how fragile we really are. As Rich Mullins sang, we are not as strong as we think we are. Bacteria can fell us. We are weak, vulnerable creatures at best.

Others in the family faced trials. Last night, Andrea despaired. She’s worked so hard and feels like there’s very little to show for all that work.
That’s when I put things together. Despair can sometimes signal an attack. It makes you want to stop, retreat, or just give up. But an attack means you’re on to something good. An attack means you’re beating back the enemy of our souls.

Perhaps it’s because I’ve been talking about marriage and trying to give hope to those who have little. Yesterday, I spoke with Janet Parshall about the book, A Marriage Carol, and a woman named Chris called in tears, her marriage in tatters. She can’t trust her husband any longer because of a Facebook romance. How does she move forward?

I’m not sure I gave a good answer, but I spoke from the heart. I tried to point her to the one who is in the restoration business. The one who calls the dead back to life. Pray for Chris and her husband. Pray for those around you who are struggling with their marriages, especially church leaders. They are surely under attack.

I’m still not at full strength. Haven’t eaten anything in two days and have no desire to eat anything for the rest of my life. But I probably will because I know I need my strength to do whatever God calls me to do. May he give us the grace to live behind enemy lines today.

Hi Chris,
Missed hearing you with the two Michaels yesterday. Hope you get well soon. Enjoyed your thought-provoking post. I'm with you in not seeing a demon behind every rock or bush, but also agree that we ARE frequently in the sites of the evil one's weapons. I wish it were easier to know if the difficulties we experience really are demonic attack--or just our own laziness or stupidity--or just LIFE! Maybe I should call in on the next Two Michaels show and ask that question!! If you figure it out, let me know.

Thanks for sharing. I've heard "if you're not being attacked, you must not be doing anything." God bless you and Andrea.
