It’s a constant battle between flesh and spirit. The flesh is outward in demanding attention, yet the spirit quietly whispers for its fame. It’s a war no one wants to fight but knows their only choice is going to battle. The flesh is feeble, yet the spirit is solid. The flesh is angry, yet the spirit is gentle. The flesh is depleted, yet the spirit offers endurance. It’s a pathway that requires withstanding the flesh to get to the spirit, and a daily battle to break through. Oftentimes, the struggle is more meaningful than the experience. It's in the struggle that the spirit reveals its goodness. If we remain in the flesh, we will only see darkness. If we take the time each day to break through the flesh, the light is always there awaiting us. The days are long and the times are hard, yet with You is the fountain of life. In Your light do we see light.
