Ever heard the saying love is a battlefield? Well I lay here tonight thinking of things that have been said that just completely prepared me for battle.
First off there is my sister. She only has two. First which is probably the least said “They’re all hypocrites” (put armor suit on now) Then when I make one tiny mistake “Well that’s real Christian of you.” (Draw sword) From there it only goes downhill. To the point I say I’m done and she doesn’t speak to me for months, instead stalks my Facebook and reports everything to mommy and daddy. (I’m supposed to be the baby of the family)
Next off there’s my brothers. Thomas who completely denies God and Nick who well he’s a whole other story I don’t feel like getting into.
So, we’ll go to my number one “fan”! My mother. Oh… nothing like a mother’s criticism. Here are a few of her “I’m only trying to help you words” everyone there is a hypocrite (I pulled everything I had out at this point in time), I didn’t think you’d last a year (I pulled the armor mask down), I think you’ve taken it too far(completely suited up), keep Jesus in your way (sword drawn), oh and here’s my favorite said only yesterday “well here lately you’ve seemed to have gotten the basics down.”
WHAT!? At this point I literally had to bite my tongue form going off right then and there. Jesus isn’t some game you play. It’s not a thing I go and get a coach for! It’s not a card game I play on Sunday mornings! How dare you compare my God to a game! Oh I was beyond floored at this point. So it’s a bad idea to bite your tongue because I ended up crying. (It hurt a lot) Weather physically or emotionally I don’t know which cut deeper.
My battlefield is at home; my battlefield is at school, so question is where is my home base? Well that would be church(most of the time), and my Saturday night home (Burns’).
Question is are you willing to battle the people you love the most for the one who loves you the most? His love is worth fighting for, even if you have to wait. Well….dang. (Had to have it somewhere: D)
