Fearing the battle was over, and I’d already lost the war.
I was tired of trying and failing, I just couldn’t fight anymore.
So dragging my battle-scarred body I crawled to the foot of the cross...
and I sobbed, "Oh, please Father forgive me. But, I tried, I tried hard, and still lost."
Then the air grew silent around me I heard His voice just as clear as the dawn.
"Oh, my child, though you’re tired and weary, you can’t stop - you have to go on."
At the foot of the cross where I met Him At the foot of the cross where He died.
I felt love as I knelt in His presence... I felt hope as I looked in those eyes.
Then He gathered me lovingly to Him, as around us God’s light clearly shone.
And together we marched through my lifetime. To heal every wound I had known.
I found bits of my dreams long forgotten, and pieces of my life on the floor.
But, I watched as He tenderly blessed them. And my life was worth living once more.
I knew then why I had been losing I knew, also, why I had not grown.
At the foot of the cross came the answer. I’d been fighting the battle alone.
At the foot of the cross where I met Him, At the foot of the cross where He died.
Then I knew we could meet any challenge together... just my Lord and I
We don’t have to fight the battle alone. Jesus said he would be with us always, even to the end of the earth in Mat 28:20.
We are promised the mighty strength of God to help us in our struggles.
Ephes. 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,
Col. 1:11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy;
God’s Spirit will help us put to death the deeds of the body (sinful acts). Romans 8:13-14 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
As long as we are faithful to him He has promised to always be there for us. Hebrews 13:5b "I will never leave you nor forsake you."
Are you trying to fight the battle alone? If you are then you need to take advantage of the help God will supply. - LP
