The Battle
Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth

The Battle

Remember that this life is but a training ground
for those of us who believe.
And that God works out everything
for good, if you will only receive.
Our heart and soul are all that matter
as we learn our lessons here below
We are only here to please Him
and to others always show
That in all things we trust HIM
not our will. but His be done.
He can take the worst situation
and show us the battle has been won.
So today as we pick up the pieces
of the destruction that has been wrought
Turn your heart and mind upon Jesus
where the true battle has been fought!
