I fight not against the bait,
that is placed upon the hook
but rather against Satan who want’s
to keep me out of life’s book.
I wrestle not against the helm,
that fights the winds at sea
but rather against the gusts of sin
that takes me far from Thee.
I struggle not against the will,
that is battled with each day
but rather against its raging power
that from God, forces me away.
I resist not against a world,
that can’t see my point of view
but rather against their defiance
of a Man they never knew.
I am up against a universe,
made by God for man’s delight
yet opts to live in the darkness
then to dwell in His saving light.
1 Timothy 6:12
New King James Version
“Fight the good fight of faith,
lay hold on eternal life,
to which you were also called
and have confessed the good confession
in the presence of many witnesses.”
Deborah Ann Belka
