Staying Behind

“And it happened, in the spring of the year, at the time kings go out to battle, that Joab led out the armed forces and ravaged the country of the people of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah.  But David stayed at Jerusalem. And Joab defeated Rabbah and overthrew it.”  1 Chronicles 20:1

David stayed behind and lost a different battle.

Lord, we desire to stay in the battles you want us in.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Day to Day

Lord, You know when we’re weary
of the battles day to day
wanting to just check out
and avoid the fray

so please strengthen us
to enter in once more
and be lifted by the fact
You’ve already won the war.
