Life is a Battle

Wow, I've learned that witnessing & ministering Christ definitely does bring trials and so-called consequences. My past week has been ambivalent- full of ups & downs. It was full of strength in God & works through me, yet also with painful memories- I hate to view myself as a victim, but in reality I guess I was a victim of Satan's attacks to keep me stuck in the past- things I've never worked through; some things came up in which I'd ignored & denied happened or blamed myself solely- I tend to turn inwards- it's very hard for me to view myself as a "victim". This is my song for the past week:
"Song For The Broken"

I am the comfortable secure
The definition of this western world, and
I have perfected deceit
Even I believe, I'm above, saving (yeah)
And I'll never, let you see

I am the broken
I am the bruised
I am the poor ones
I have been used

It takes me falling to the ground
To admit to, fully needing you
Then When I'm breathing my last breath
"Come and save me" I will cry to you
'Cause pride has not, let me say

I am the broken
I am the bruised
I am the poor ones
I have been used

(Oh why does it take so much?)
To bring me to my knees,
(Oh why does it take so much?)
Pain for me to see,
(If strength is only found when)
I am on my knees,
(Why is it so hard)
To show that I am weak? Yeah yeah

I am the broken
I am the bruised
I am the poor ones
I have been used.
The words to this song spoke to my heart. The devil is roaring fiercely in the world today, but my God roars louder. If you remember to, please lift me up in prayer as I face my wounds- my denial; as I bring glory to God. Life is in fact a battle between good & evil!
