Courage Satan Hates Sprinkles by Ginny Martyn • Nov 8, 2009 • 12 Comments • 0Shares Download Share My dad is famous for his optimism; as far as most people are concerned he is completely candy-coated. He lives out James 1:2 unlike anyone I have ever met. Leave a Comment

What a sweet tribute to your Dad! It seems that he was a man after God’s own heart!
May we remember to throw up some praise and thanksgiving at all times, especially when Satan attempts to mess with us.
What a lovely post!
This brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for sharing. An important lesson indeed.

This was a great thing to have in my inbox today! I have been trying to have joy regardless. I have been suffering for almost three years with a debilitating illness. I keep trying to explain to people that I have the Joy regardless of my circumstances. Thanks for putting it into words I could share with my folks!

What a wonderful way to start my day…with a heart full of Thanksgiving! Thank you for the joyful reminder to thank God in the midst of life no matter the outcome!
I love this. I’ve always wanted to have that kind of joy and I’ve never been too good at it in the midst of trial. But I know you’re right…the praise and thanksgiving while we’re going through those difficult moments makes a huge difference. Quite convicting!

“Celebration in the midst of struggle is odd for our human nature because it can’t be attained without God. ”
Wow, love that so much!
I like this story a lot. It’s true that the best thing we can do in a tough situation is to rejoice in the Lord.
