Monday Matters: Getting Hit in the Snot Box!

By Amy Maxwell

Yesterday I found myself getting pummeled by some pretty large men as I was fighting for my next rank in Krav Maga.  I took a direct shot to the nose and blood spurted out.  I know this is graphic, but isn’t that life? You’re going along and bang, you get hit right in the snot box and then life starts draining out unless you get up.  See it’s not the hit that keeps you down its the choice you make after the hit.  Get up, or continue to get beat.  The enemies hits are relentless and he wants nothing more than for you to sit down, quit it with all this hero nonsense and go dormant.  And sometimes you may need to take cover in the community for awhile and heal before you are ready to rejoin the fight.  That’s ok that’s what community is for.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” ~  Ephesians 6:12
