THE  BATTLE  WITHIN

Conflicts within, conflicts without,

But the Spirit of the Lord moves gently

As human nature struggles, shouts and resists;

Troubles seem to flood each day,

Each defiant person’s steps along the way.

Yet, Holiness towers high above

And humbly reaches below

In an eternal wait

A most powerful vigil

Active diligence beyond our understanding,

While rebellious man

And stubborn woman

Dig in their heels,

Stuck in an Earthly moment

Frozen into a selfish, worldly circumstance.

The needed change for goodness

Such a hard walk through the desert world

Difficulties mixed with ever present problems,

Weeds always seeded about in the gardens;

The mind is its own decisive battlefield

Thoughts blown about as clouds that swirl,

War of the mind goes on as the enemy easily infiltrates

Manipulates and lusts to control,

Human nature sadly in its dark recesses,

Weakness of free will,

Knowingly and unknowingly

Invites more and more of the same;

Bad becomes worse

Evil at times even celebrated.

*******

But the Sovereign Creator, the Lord of Truth hears sincere prayers

As blended incense before His Throne

Tearful cries of His children

Followers, Christians who care for and love even those who hate them.

Heaven’s authority and power reaches out in lovingkindness

Touches one, then another,

Two or three gathered together in strength of revelation;

Creative mercy enlightens one mind

And then many faithful others,

When the Sword of the Holy Spirit Bible writings flashes

Light overpowers dark thoughts and impressions,

Whispers of demons,

Sharp Word thrusts bring all into submission to Divine Truth

And mercy triumphs again;

With peaceful wisdom from above

Evil and the “evil one” is crushed and flees,

Yes, again and again

Throughout an Earthly lifetime!
