Fight or Wallow

#1 Satan hits us when we're weak. (Check it out, Matthew 4)
#2 For women, well at least for me, we're a lot weaker at certain times of the month.

Fight or Wallow
I can feel it coming.  It's not a physical feeling for me...it's an emotional one. 
All of a sudden, everyone is a little bit annoying, and everything is a little bit personal.
I'm bombarded by negative thoughts..."my life is a failure, I'm no good, everyone else is succeeding, I'm the loser, it's somebody else's fault, and the whole world is bad, bad, bad." 

Of course, nothing externally has really changed.  I'm just weakened, tired, and vulnerable.

I've been trying to find a good strategy to fight this monthly downward spiral.

#1 It's a good feeling to go to bed after a long day of work.

Those seem like two worthy goals to me. 

Being satisfied is not something we have to strive after...It's more like something we rest in...even while we're working.

Proverbs 19:23 - "The fear of the LORD leads to life,
and whoever has it rests satisfied;
he will not be visited by harm."
