My spirit feels like it is in the trenches of a battle. My competitive nature won’t allow me to surrender. Only to God do my hands go up. He will not authorize my defeat. In the midst of all my insecurities, I find reassurance that God is working His Mighty plan in me. I hear Him calling me to fight the good fight. Even on the darkest days, I feel the support of a spiritual army combating my earthly struggle. This is the conflict between what I know and what I have yet to see. I am wrestling with mighty questions. I am bringing them to a mighty God. And on most days I am forcing myself to say, "Lord, have your way with me".
