God is Stronger

After the test yesterday they placed a combo fibrillator/pacemaker in my dad. He is awaiting word to come home tonight. So far nothing yet.

I feel as if I have been slipping in my time with the Lord, but I found it wasn't so. Even though I've been working and going to the hospital, I have only had one moment to stop at the Chapel. Yet in the times I have missed going I have made my prayers more so than ever. I have also discovered something else in the process of not being in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament and that is the attacks on the soul. It seems that the last few days they have been hitting and very hard too.

All a person can do is pray and put on the armor of God to shield the soul from the onslaught. Sacramentals are very affective too. I don't know what made me want to sprinkle the house with Holy Water but I did and in Jesus' name I asked for the darkness to be gone. One can not doubt for a moment when evil attempts to mar the beauty of God's presence in our lives. I don't wish this on anyone, nor would they like to know what it does. But now I do understand how people often find themselves lost from God. One thing for sure, I have encountered this before and did the same thing. I've prayed the Our Father and the Hail Mary numerous times as well as rejecting the evil one. That is important to reject what does not belong in our lives.

Well anyway peace has reigned supreme once again. The test is done and faith in God is ever stronger. Love for God won the battle over the onslaught of evil. I wonder if others have also gone through similar tests and found they have conquered the foe. It's not a pleasant battle, that's for sure.
