The Battle


Weary

From the seemingly endless attacks


Relentless

On every side


“No more!”

I cry out


I want to give up

Step aside


Take a break

For just a little while


What’s that?

Is that a snicker I hear?


“Discouragement,

Job well done!”


Success

She’s let down her shield again


We’ll win

If she comes to the battle alone


Victory is ours

If she comes unarmed and unprepared


The battle is on

Let’s turn up the heat


Be subtle

Lest she’ll turn to her God again


Oh no...she’s on bended knee

Pleading with her Lord for strength


She beseeches Him

To guard her heart and mind in Christ Jesus


She remembers

He will never leave nor forsake her


She asks for wisdom

For God to guide her every step


If the battle remains between us

The victory is ours


If she enlists the help of her God

All is lost
