Struggle

I struggle hardest against
My own flesh
Harder than I will ever
Have to fight
An external foe
For my flesh,
My human nature
That which tells me
To run from my fears
Which would have me
Find what feels right
Ignoring doing what
I know is right
And chasing after
A life path that looks
So much easier
So much more fun
So much more comfortable
My human nature
Would have me
Fling myself at that path
And give up the struggle
That comes with commitments
That I must honor
And must follow through with
Because they are made for me
And I took them on
And they have taken much
So much from me
But, for all they have taken,
I can resist the urge to
Move on and give up
Before God has released me
From my time with them
Because they have poured
More back into me
Than what they took
Defying the theory
Of relativity by making more
Than we ever started with
And God pours more in
Than could ever be measured
In human terms
Yet, I will struggle on
And I will not give up
Even when I fail
Because God will
Pick me up
When I can’t do it
And even when I can
Because God doesn’t sit around
Waiting for me to ask
Or to struggle
With my flesh
He moves always
Ever with me
Always inside
And around me
And He always will
Even when this life is over
And I’m freed of my flesh
And it’s struggle
To go Home with Christ
Freed from my
Hardest struggle
