How do you fight? Who has trained you to fight?
Typically we learn to fight by watching our parents. We learn words, tactics, reactions, and actions directly by watching and absorbing deep into our minds what we grew up with. And typically they are extremely broken and toxic fighting practices.
I grew up in a toxic home full of yelling, cursing, passive aggressive and overtly aggressive fighting habits. I didn't know how to deal with my anger, my disappointment, or advocate for myself in healthy ways.
And the churches I went to never showed me how to have healthy boundaries, strong courage, how to process anger or feelings, and how to allow God to right wrongs in a positive way.
The enemy wants disempowered women who are either victims and doormats or angry, overwhelmed, bitter, and broken women.
God wants us to learn how to process our anger, our disappointment, our attacks by humans and the adversary in an empowering way. He wants us to use His Holy Spirit to guide us in our words, our actions, and our reactions. He wants us to choose how to advocate for ourselves and create healthy boundaries and then release the vengeance/the outcome into His hands to craft as He so chooses.
It's time we choose our words, reframe our thoughts, and speak God's word over our circumstances, mind, body, and relationships.
It's time to choose healthy boundaries and the courage to stop crafting our lives based on how we want others to see us and think of us.
Let's choose to speak God's word often. Let's choose to release all things into His hands especially how He chooses to deal with our enemies.

Let's pray: Dear God, we thank You for loving us beyond measure. We humbly come to You with praise and repentance for our actions and inactions that do not correspond with Your will and way.
Lord please show us where we are choosing words that create disfunction. Please show us the toxic habits that we absorbed from our past relationships and infuse us with the courage to change them no matter how long it takes.
We know You will lead us on a level path when we seek You and release the outcomes into Your hands. Please help us to know when we are trying to control things into our will and way and the humbleness to repent and release all into Your hands to craft as You so choose.
Thank You Jesus for being our Good Shepherd that leads all those willing into new life, salvation, and healing. Please surround us with Your favor and protection all our days as You break every scheme of the enemy and every trail that we must grow through.
We sing praises to Your name, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen!
