In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
John 1:4-5 NIV84
Praise the Lord, that in a world so full of darkness, He is light!
The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.
John 1:9 NIV84
He came to us! He saw us in our need, fumbling in the darkness, and came to shine light to all men!

You can read some of the beginnings of this battle in previous blog entries. Here are just a few from last year:
I am so grateful that God never gives up on me. I am grateful that even though there are days I feel defeated, there are also days I feel victory. More importantly, I know that ultimately I will have victory Someday, this earth will pass away and my mortal body will go down to the grave, but I will be swept away to spend eternity with my Jesus. No more pain. No more disappointment. No more hurt, or anger, or heartache, or failure, or shame. No more lies! Only Truth. The One and only Truth! Thank you, Jesus!
Here are a few of the notes from a recent time in the Word and in prayer over the issues of Lies and Strongholds:

I have been feeling a tugging on my heart for the past several months to add this to my blog. My plan here is to share what I'm learning as I study the Word, pray, think, fight, agonize, and rejoice in my efforts to grow as a follower of Christ. I have many shortcomings, and I will be honest about them here. I am nothing if not honest and transparent and I promise to continue to be so here. I pray this will bless you, somehow. Maybe you'll relate to some of my struggles or know someone who does. Maybe you'll be inspired to be honest yourself, for the sake of someone else. I do not claim to be a great Bible scholar or wise theologian. I am neither of those. I am however, a girl who loves Jesus and who is determined (by the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit) to spend the rest of my days here on earth, following my Master. I want to grow, to learn, and to bear fruit. I want to shine brightly the love of Jesus to this lost and dying world. I want to know my God better so I can be more like Him. Life is hard. It hurts a lot sometimes. I trust my Jesus, though. He has never let me down! He is faithful.
