Each defeat

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil (Matthew 4:1; NLT).

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).

With your help I can advance against a troop, with my God I can scale a wall (2 Samuel 22:30; NIV).

**********************

Lord,

May each defeat,
Each loss, fear,
And affliction

Be a turning-point,
A challenge,
An adventure –

A chance to face
And overcome
My demons,

A chance to grow
In confidence,
With you.
