1. I agree. Nails on a chalkboard. Nails on a hardwood.
    There is no difference lol.

    I feel a lot of what you said resonates in more way than one, thank you for sharing so openly about a very common struggle and how we can be alert to what’s happening, or could happen.

  2. I was just thinking of this yesterday. This is so important to our own peace of mind in the day to day affairs. I saw myself wiped out after overdoing it. Thank you for this wonderful reminder. (P.S. That wall art was super cute.) #GraceandTruthLinkup

  3. That’s why I love studying the Hebraic meaning to Scripture. It brings about a new understanding and honestly helps me to walk out what I read. Thank you for sharing this aspect of guarding our hearts.

  4. This is so good! As a mommy to a toddler and a newborn, I can’t remember the last time I’ve slept through the night so this really resonates with me! My husband and I have found that when we don’t make time to rest by spending time in His Word, the battles seem so much bigger. I love the concept of being a watchman for both ourselves and each other!

  5. Very important truth to be sharing!! The enemy is so crafty in his deceit and if we aren’t taking time to draw strength daily from His truth’s then we are most definitely only going to make ourselves weak and then as you mentioned when another element is added to the mix like sickness or fatigue, the lion is ready to pounce!! Guard your heart and mind daily…..good stuff!!

  6. So happy to have clicked over from BVN 🙂 Thank you for this reminder. I forget the watchmen all the time! I go, go, go thinking I can (and should) get it all done. But God never called us to that. WE need to seek protection along the way too.

  7. Thanks, Diane! I was just talking with my daughter about this very verse, and your post has given me a great focus for discussion. 🙂 I’m so glad you’ve used your attack to help prepare the rest of us and to grow stronger as well. Blessings!

  8. I like that. “The Watchman on the Wall,” is such a great metaphor. We need to pray and make sure every day that he is there, guarding our hearts and minds as well as those of our children and husbands.
