5 Minute Friday - Fight


The word sunk in deep.  I know this word.  This word is what He whispered when I could not get out of bed....fight....when I wanted to run...fight....when I wanted to hide.....fight.  This word changed me.  He taught me a different way, a way to fight back with my words....not to wound, but to heal.  He taught me to pray without ceasing, to fight hard battles on my knees.  He taught me how to fight by only being still.  Thing is about the fight is, it requires training and effort and time and perseverance.  It requires help and a team because no good fighter ever won a battle on their own, no, we do this as a whole.  Sometimes we need to change strategies.  Sometimes we have to walk away.  Sometimes that is the hardest fight of all.  Thankful.



  1. So good! Yes, sometimes we have to do the opposite of what we may think or feel. Love this! Here from FMF! Happy New Year!

  2. "fight hard battles on my knees" this is a lesson He is teaching me over and over again. That actually I don't have to fight He is fighting for me.

  3. Oh, yes...such good words here. I don't know why I always forget it, but the best battles ARE fought on our knees. So grateful for this reminder tonight, sweet friend! Happy weekend to you! :)
