I Lost the Heading But Contest
8 years ago I ALLOWED the enemy to poison my thoughts with fear, doubt, and insecurity. I ALLOWED the seed of Discouragement to take root in my inner soul. The key phrase that sent me to my grave were:
” YOU WEREN’T MEANT TO DANCE! YOU’RE TOO OLD AND TOO FAT TO BE A DANCER!
Back then I didn’t know the effect of words and how it can literally kill who you are on the inside. Those planted words opened doors of doubt, fear, and discouragement.
Every time I danced in a local professional company, I froze. I got scared. I couldn’t retain choreography. So I stopped dancing and decided to teach and choreograph instead. The enemy head butted me with thoughts such as:
>You’ll never be as good as the other dancers because your too old.
>You’re out of shape and will never be able to kick your leg that high
>You’re gonna mess up the choreography and people will notice.
>People will notice you are a bad dancer.
>You’re not a professional dancer anymore, why are you still dancing.
>You look really stupid on stage dancing.
>You’re not anointed to dance.
I lost the fight because I didn’t where the Helmet of Salvation.
I didn’t use the word of God to fight the enemy. I was emotional and believed that if I ignored those comments and have self-pep talks that I would be okay, but that wasn’t the case.

2. How you can you apply the helmet of salvation within the head but contest with the enemy?
