Hey, I just wanted to let you know about a little something before we get started with today’s Scattered Seeds.
In addition to our regular weekly Podcast, my husband and I have started a daily “5-Minute Marriage” Podcast. Each podcast has a Bible verse that corresponds with our marriage prayer of the day, along with a little encouragement.
Note: It takes a few days for the podcast to migrate over to iTunes, but for now, you can listen on Anchor or Spotify.

And don’t forget: you can always find our weekly podcast here:

If somebody told me that I was too tall, I wouldn’t give it a second thought. I know what I am. I’ve experienced the struggle of buying pants that need to be hemmed. I know what it’s like to drag a kitchen chair to the counter every time I need to reach something on the second shelf. I’m aware of the fact that my little legs take longer to get where I’m going. You can’t stand there and tell me I’m tall because I could clearly show you I’m not.
Here’s the thing: when we truly know what we know, we’re ready to defend what we know. In the same way, when we’re armed with scripture we can draw from our faith. That’s why the Bible tells us that the Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword. It cuts through the lies that attack us and threaten to draw us away from the Lord.
We hear lies daily. Whether they’re internal or external, Satan is at work dragging you down. His mission is to discourage you and draw you away from your faith. His tactics have a way of sucking the joy out of you until all you’re left with is a feeling of self-doubt and defeat.
Just knowing this makes me want to grab hold of scripture tighter than I ever have. I want to be like Jesus Who, while He was tempted, rebuked Satan’s lies with the truth of God’s Word. Why? Because He knew what He knew and was therefore ready to stand.

Tilling the Soil
Read Matthew 4:1-11 where we see Jesus boldly defending His faith with the truth of the Word.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12, KJV)

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
