Worn Down

 Friday, September 10, 2010

Why does it feel like there's major warfare going on everywhere? It seems like everywhere I look battles are going on. In my family, in my friends families, on Facebook, on blogs...everywhere! And I'm so exhausted I don't feel like I can keep going. Which brings to mind a Twila Paris song...The Warrior is a Child...


Lately I've been winning battles left and right
But even winners can get wounded in the fight
People say that I'm amazing
Strong beyond my years
But they don't see inside of me
I'm hiding all the tears

They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and cry for just a while
'Cause deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

Unafraid because His armor is the best
But even soldiers need a quiet place to rest
People say that I'm amazing
Never face retreat
But they don't see the enemies
That lay me at His feet

They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and and cry for just a while
'Cause deep inside this armor
the warrior is a child

They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and look up for a smile
'Cause deep inside this armor
Deep inside this armor
Deep inside this armor
The Warrior is a Child

That pretty much describes how I feel right now. I hate saying it cause I want to see my children grow up and serve the Lord, but the end is near. You can just feel it. I know once we get HOME we won't care anymore, but I so want to see my kids grow. There really are battles left and right. I know who's in control though, and I know that the battles already been won! And (another song : ) "I'm on the Winning Side"!

I am on the winning side, I am on the winning side, out in sin no more will I abide, I've enlisted in the fight for the cause of truth and right, Praise the Lord I'm on the winning side!!!!!!!

And (forgive me one more song, our family thinks in songs :)

The Sun's Coming Up

Once again, I face Satan this morning
And I battle him, all the day long
But in my weakness, God sent reinforcements
And at sundown, I'll sing Victory's song

And the sun's comin' up, in the morning
Every tear will be gone from my eye
This old place is gonna give way to Glory
And like an eagle, I'll take to the sky

In a world, filled with doubts and confusion
It's so hard, when you don't understand
But I'll stand, on a solid foundation
And I'll hold, to an unchanging hand

And the sun's comin' up, in the morning
Every tear will be gone from my eye
This old place is gonna give way to Glory
And like an eagle, I'll take to the sky
