the battle rages...

This is a diversion from the normal crafts...just some pondering that I've done...

The battle never ceases, despite the fact that there are long periods in our lives without fighting, without bloodshed, without even fear or weeping. However, do not be fooled. Those times are merely rest stops; the battle still rages. Do not put down your weapons. Do not give up your defenses. Do not think that you're safe and secure.

The enemy is lurking, and he is waiting for you to give in to the belief that everything is fine; he wants you to embrace the status quo. The truth is everything is not as quiet and calm as you may think. The battle rages on, and the rest is only there to help you prepare for battle!

Friends, know God. He is your defense. The battle will continue, and when it does, will you be ready?

The Battle of Life is never ending, for sure. I'm not sure what you are referring to directly, I'm just trying to apply what you are saying to my own life and my interpretation.

It's always good to do some deep thinking.
