Itís always frustrating when things go wrong. Car troubles, traffic jams can take a happy moment and turn it into despair.

When I want to do something for the Lord, something likely will go wrong. On a day when I was going out of town on a mission outreach; I had a flat tire.

Then there are times when I went on a church retreat. On a few occasions the bus broke down.

I like to get the weekend started off right by having my Friday go smoothly at work followed by a nice calm ride home. One day, the boss give me too much work to do and not enough time to do it. Then at the end of the day, she yelled at me. On my way home, someone gave me a obscene gesture, when both of us tried to get into the same lane, while making a left hand turn.

I freaked out when, I drove home in a thunderstorm and had golf ball sized -hail hit my car.

There was the Friday when I got home and tried to balance my checkbook only to discover that the bank made a mistake on my deposit. The teller typed the wrong number into the computer, but the correction couldn't be made until Tuesday.

There is a war going on and it is a spiritual battle between lightness and darkness. Because I accepted Jesus I have made peace with him, and this spiritual war was nothing but a distraction.

Anyone can have peace in the midst of a war, if people repent and ask Jesus into their heart then our spiritual wars will be just a distant memory. All things on this earth will pass away and become new in our heavenly home.

You make a good overall point about war and peace. I like how the article began and ended.

I think there was room within the story part of this to expound a bit on the events of the day and bring in a needed turning point (e.g. a positive experience by the MC to help transition to the conclusion). Thanks for sharing.

You did a nice job showing how the devil can attack us. I also think it was a nice message, but you didn't shove the message in the reader's face, always a plus for me.

I wish you could open up and share even more of yourself. I have A feeling you have many messages and stories in you just waiting for you to let loose and pour your heart out. That can be a scary thing to do but you are the only one who can tell those stories. Good job.
