"Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph
in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance
of His knowledge in every place."
II Corinthians 2:14
As I sit here pondering my warfare quest
I thank God for the Grace that for me
passed this test I must never forget
from where I have come
And how the warfare of the battle was won
How lowly I lay, how deep in the pit
Pathways so dark, no candle was lit
Smothered in grief, with my soul laid bare
Fighting for my life, and trapped in a snare
Two days as a prisoner in a deep dark grave|
Was there no one to help me, no one to save?
From the jaws of darkness, this evil so strong
My grip was loosening, I could not hold on long
For I held on to my life for two days of a lifetime
My spirit was weak, a new hope I must find
I would not surrender as a prisoner of war
In my life as a warrior, I had come much too far
The breath of life from my soul had long gone
No visible hope that I should hold on
Yet I heard the whisper of a voice so strong
Saying, "Melinda, My Warrior, the battle is won"
I picked myself up from the pit I was in
With hopes in my heart for victory to begin
I began crawling until I could see light
And when I saw it…it strengthened me to fight
My balance was unsteady, but I stood to my feet
For my Battle Commander I prepared myself to meet
The orders were given to march onto the battlefield
And no longer to the enemy was I ever to yield
With Salvation as my Helmet I placed it on with care
My Breastplate of Righteousness I determined to wear
I girded my loins with the Truth from above
The Gospel of Peace shod my feet like a dove
My Shield of Faith was held high to proclaim
That I come to do battle in His Mighty Name
The Sword of the Spirit I took out of my sheath
The Word of My God placed the enemy beneath
No longer in the pit, the snare I had fled
My Commander embraced me and anointed my head
Well done my Warrior, your faithfulness is true
Yet so many more battles have been assigned you
As I think on these words my expectations are sure
That my warrior days I have been called to endure
As I wait for My Commander to sound the next call
I train for the next battle armored and tall
For I am honored to be a Warrior of the Lord
To Carry His Word, the undefeated Sword
Until the next time, I will stand strong and resist
Just knowing I am a Warrior for such a time as this
