I Don’t Feel Like A Warrior

“He makes my feet like hinds’ feet,
And sets me upon my high places. He trains my hands for battle,
So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze…
I pursued my enemies and overtook them,
And I did not turn back until they were consumed.”  Psalm 18:33-34, 37 NASB
 

Saw this as a friend’s facebook status update recently, and I realized something-I don’t feel like a warrior.  More often than I would like to admit, when times get tough I wish I could just keep my head down, do my job, and wait for the storm to pass me by.  That’s not how life works, and I know it, believe me.  Yet oh how fervently I sometimes wish I didn’t have to struggle and fight in certain areas.
