winning the battle.

my night suddenly cleared up with all my meetings cancelled.
i got home and just needed to run.
everything that has built up inside gets let out on that 3 mile loop.
it's my time to think.
simply what i needed.
i've been thinking about things a lot lately.
and i wish i knew what to compare it to.
here's my best explanation.
first of all there's me, trying to figure out the best way to go.
and from every side i get confusion, doubt, fear.
a constant battle with the adversary, who wants me to fail.
and sometimes i'm letting him win.
i let him tell me i'm not worth much,
or that there is no hope in the future,
or i might as well give up now.
but i take the small step to kneel down and pray,
or open up the scriptures.
and suddenly, all that darkness disappears.
i see that there is hope and i feel the love of my Savior.
and He lets me know, "you can make it."
each of us can.
because we are children of God.
remember that.

Beautiful insight. And something it's always nice to be reminded of.
