1 Peter 5:8 “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”
It’s so easy for us to make other women the enemy.
Unhealthy comparison isn’t even the root of the issue in this spiritual battle … it’s an identity issue.
“Our view of God- who he is and who says WE are- makes all the difference in how we interact with those around us.”

“Embrace the ongoing process”
Romans 5:3-5 TPT
“Even in times of trouble we have a joyful confidence, knowing that our pressures will develop in us patient endurance. 4And patient endurance will refine our character, and proven character leads us back to hope. 5And this hope is not a disappointing fantasy, because we can now experience the endless love of God cascading into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who lives in us!”
