The struggle I face

Sometimes I feel like I have the victory
Sometimes I feel like I’ve lost.
Sometimes I take on life with confidence
Sometimes the consequences come with too much of a cost.

I want to be strong and be able to stand firm.
But the attacks that come my way are strong as hell.
I put my trust in the Saviour and take him at his word.
But when I face the enemy those words become a ringing lull.

I watch as others go on with their lives.
And mine stands still……
I watch as others laugh and enjoy life.
And my confidence stoops to nil
