Ran across this this evening as I was looking for something else…
written 2012-2013….not really sure, I think i was trying to write like a modern-day Psalm?
I stand in the battlefield
The world’s artillery ringing in my ears
The precious cross before me.
The dust and the smoke fill my eyes
But You are before me.
The shouts ring out all around me
But I will not move.
My eyes are fixed ahead-
On what lies before me.
On WHO stands with me.
It is You, Jesus—the bread of Life eternal.
It is Your Love I seek.
Though men aim to kill me,
Only You can save.
They try to trap me, they
Try to bribe my loyalty.
But who am I without You?
I fix my heart on You alone.
I fix my eyes on the cross
And the Precious Life You’ve given.
Help me, Jesus, not to falter.
Help me stand.
Help me win this war—
For it is You and You alone
Whom I love.
Let the enemies pass on by,
Let their voices disappear
In the Light of the Son.
May the aim of the wicked
Be turned against their ruler, and let them who
Slay me see the Son in all His Glory.
Let their hearts be forever changed,
Oh Lord! Help them to see their wicked ways and turn to You
For eternal Life.
Please, Father, help me stand against the oppressors, against
this world. Do not let me be
conformed, but let me stand
in Your presence.
Help me, Guide me, Teach me, and may Your Light shine through me. This is my prayer forever.
Help me to PRAISE Your Name
In the middle of the struggle.
No matter what friend or foe do,
Let me PRAISE you. Let me be an example
Of Your LOVE and COMPASSION to this world.
