My face is chiseled with pits and deep grooves!
My hands callused from the use of my sword!
My armor no longer sparkles like a shiny new penny!
It is scratched, dented and dinged!
My sword is tarnished with the blood of my enemies!
I do not look like a "knight in shining armor!" I am ok with that!
I'll take callused hands and a scared face over a flawless beauty!
Why? Because this body, this spirit is battle tested!
It has savored the sweetest of victories!
But it has also tasted the bitterness of defeat!
I know this body and spirit will withstand the storm!
I know I will live to fight another day!
Because I am a WARRIOR!
A warrior in the army of the true and living God!
The VICTORY IS ALREADY WON!
I may lose a battle but because of CHRIST!
I HAVE NOT LOST THE WAR!
I AM A WARRIOR IN HIS ARMY!
IN HIM, I HAVE THE ULTIMATE AND FINAL
