Deepertruth Member Terry Delp with an important word of encouragement
In this battle of life, remember what you are fighting for. You place in eternity, and eternity is a LONG time to regret being wrong.
Life has gotten in some good punches on me, and.just when I thought I had him up against the ropes, I opened up a flurry of blows, and he stepped close and caught me with a perfect uppercut.
Dazed, I found myself backing up and catching a couple jabs to the face. This beast seems to be unbeatable, I've been in the fight for so long now.
I want to just lay down and give up.
I open my mouth to scream, but no sound escapes from my lips as I remember.
I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me, but it is a choice. Straightening my helmet of salvation, and polishing my shield of faith, tying my shoes up and reaching once again for my Sword of Scripture, I tuck my chin and jump back into the fight.
Wearied, exhausted, I knuckle up knowing the war is already one, I just got to make it through the fight.
