All to Jesus
The words whisper
in my spirit.
Yet, my flesh is angry
and screams, “BUT THIS IS MINE!”
The battle begins
and the lines are intertwined.
One moves forward
another pushed back.
The winner changes
and within seconds advances.
Fear charges to bound my hands.
Trust thursts the sword down through rope’s fear.
They are broken,
and immediately new ones appear.
Joy fights gallantly
while Doubt grins wickedly.
The lines continue to be drawn.
Each crossing into the other’s territory.
Smudges, blots, corrections.
Swords clash amidst groans and grunts.
Screams of the enemy,
mixed with the cries of Holy matrimony.
The battle is me.
The battle is you.
The Lamb is coming
what will you do?
I can’t imagine what spiritual warfare looks like physically. All the lies and whispers. Yet, I can’t imagine what amazing love the Father shows us as Jesus transforms us through His Holy Spirit, either. We must wear the armor of God at all times so that we are prepared for battle. When an attack starts, if we are not prepared that very second, we will easily be subdued.
