fighting through tears to stay in the light,
when axes are flying and the enemy is at flight.
Still swimming although your head is beneath….
the water is cold, no place to re-treat.
still running this race when your legs have been broken,
every limb is used up and you don’t get a gold token.
Believing that God is still by your side,
when the waves billow hatefully, but you still want to ride.
Staying in love with the Lord of Glory,
the Author and finisher of your faith,
beginning and ending of your story….
when life falls a part, but your mind is still in tact,
Jesus is the one keeping you, and that is a fact.
having joy when you “should” be feeling grief,
give it all to the King, He is your relief.
standing tall after your fall…
not hiding from your shame.
stay in the Ark of safety….It is written,
the book of life, you’ll find your name.
