Poem: Not Against Flesh and Blood


Must we compete in spiritual matches,
against unseen, devilish competitors?
Must we needlessly suffer and find…
our souls ending up both worn and sore?

Within this fallen, earthly world,
the rulers of darkness don't worry me;
for I know that their authority
is incapable of imprisoning completely.

Their ongoing tactics of fear,
is something that I've already seen.
So I'm not concerned, knowing…
that I'm a member of the Kingdom scene

Although we've been unwillingly dragged
through pain, troubles, dirt and mud,
our continuing, sacred battle is…
not against flesh and blood.





Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
Eph 6: 12

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
