Fight the Good Fight

Fighting the good fight… 

We look forward to watching Christmas movies in our home. 

We each have our favorites but there is a central theme or idea that most of the movies we enjoy share. 

It seems that the movies we enjoy most have characters that face a challenge that they need to overcome. 

The challenge is within themselves and their ability to have faith and stop relying on either a past experience or a close-minded behavior.

The point is, each character must fight a good fight of faith in order to break free of the bondage of fear and self-will that is holding them back. 

How is your battle with fear and self-bondage going?.. 

Check your experience… 

 “In this book you read again and again that faith did for us what we could not do for ourselves.” Big Book pg 70 

Lord, let us open our hearts to pursue the love and freedom we gain when we fight the good fight and grow our faith in You, AMEN. 

“Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called” 1 Timothy 6:11-12 

Have a blessed day Y’all! 

Join me in looking at the things we face daily with passages from both the Big Book and Bible!
