This is how I fight my battles…


So, I’ve recently gone through a pretty testing season of life. And, I’ve learned that the only way to win battles is to fight them the right way.

But, before I go into the details, here’s a poem I wrote during this past season:

Dear God,
I’m done
I’m giving up
I can’t carry this anymore
I have nothing left
The world couldn’t fill
What I’m searching for
But I still can’t
Seem to find it
Dear God,
Help me
Fight this battle
Take this weight
From my shoulders
It’s killing me
I’m done with the world
I’m done searching
Show me your truth
Reveal your glory to me
Dear God,
Please
Don’t make me wait
Forgive me
Restore me in your love
Fill me with peace
Show me your grace
Help me see you
Be my answer
Dear God,
I’m done searching
For temporary answers
In the world
Because
You are the answer
I’ve been looking for
This whole time
You were there
Waiting for me
To find you
Dear God,
Thank you
For waiting
For me
To come
And find you
In the midst
Of the chaos
You are
And will always
Be near


You see, I used to get really anxious in uncomfortable situations. And, I mean, REALLY anxious; I would bite my nails A LOT, and start to shut down to the people around me. I still currently have no nails while typing this, but they’re growing back, slowly (just like my relationships with some people)…
Anyways, this past season or my life (the past 6 months) have been teaching me a lot about how to fight my battles in a positive, and productive way.

I’ve learned that fighting my battles is impossible alone; my own strength is not enough (that causes me to bite my nails a lot), and even when people help me, they can’t fully win the battle (especially spiritual battles). The only way I can truly win all my battles is by fighting them with God. He is the ultimate protector in my battles, and He gives me everything I need to win all my battles.
And, this song has been an amazing reminder, and encourager for me, so I hope it inspires you as well.


Thanks for reading!
I hope this post was insightful and encouraging to your soul; and that it filled your spirit with a new sense of hope for your battles.

P.S. The featured picture of this post is me, in the middle of a battle
(that’s how I fight them now.. and it’s successful everytime)!
