I really got your message when you compared soliders who fight to keep us safe and free to the christian solider. It was a great analogy. The second part of your story really resonated with me. It's amessage I needed right now.

The beginning felt a bit like a college essay, but once you tied the two parts together it really touched my heart.

Perhaps if the first paragraph had a hook to grab the reader it might diminish that essay feel. I'd hate to have someone skip over your article because the beginning felt overwhelming.

It's way too important of a message to risk someone missing it. You presented a well-written article with many educational facts. Nicely done. Thank you for sharing this important message.

Very good article, because in this day and age, spiritual warfare seems so unreal to many, but yes, it is as real as any fleshly battle and can leave us just as weary of the fight….but thank God He has not left us defenseless, but given us some mighty armor! The belt of truth - The breastplate of righteousness - Shoes of peace - Shield of faith - Helmet of salvation and Sword of the Spirit! Hopefully we Christians remember to put on our armor everyday and then just maybe it could be us that leaves the enemy shell shocked by our devotion to Jesus! LOL

Enjoyed this thought provoking article!
