Slowing Awakening

For the past three years (since we moved back to Minnesota) we have all been sleeping. We had blindfolds cover our eyes so that we cannot see anything clearly. We were blind.
"Though they have...eyes, they cannot see." Psalms 135:16
My Uncle came into town a few weeks ago (for Christmas) and he said something that awakened us. And at that moment God opened our eyes to see the truth of what we've become. Like the story in the Bible (found in John 9 and Mark 8) of where Jesus healed the blind man so he can see, we are no longer blind.
And like when Captain America woke up from sleeping for a generation (give or take) things were different (referring to the not-great different).

We stopped fighting. We let the darkness take over our life.
But the darkness mustn't stay here any longer. With these new pair of eyes God has given us, we can now see the trouble that giving up has caused. With these new pair of eyes, we can bravely fight against the devil again. With more strength and power than ever before.
We can now boldly say, "In the Name of Jesus, Satan get out of our house [and lives]"
And faithfully, we all desperately cry out, "Amen!"
Never again shall we give up. The consequences for that were huge and painful. They still are. We are praying every morning that things will be better. We pray for strength to overcome the darkness in exchange for God's Great Light, so that someday we may spend forever with Christ our Lord.
Pray for us. This life will never be easy. Pray for God's Angels to protect our house and our family. Every time we open the door Satan finds a way to sneak inside but that is not okay anymore. Please be praying.

I love you Girl!! God is our rock. He is who he says he is. Sometimes we must walk through darkness to see the light. Life has highs and lows. I'm so grateful to be on an upswing!!
It has been 7 months since you wrote this. How are things?
