Conquering My Demons

I wake up every day and go to war with these demons in my life.

They wait for me to open my eyes, some showing themselves immediately, others hiding amongst the world.

They seem to work their way into every aspect of my being.

They show up in my finances, career, family, and love life.

At times, I feel like a soldier on a battlefield surrounded by enemies, and every time I kill one, another emerges.

Some days I feel like I can't do this anymore, but I just can't bring myself to quit.

Maybe it’s because I rarely sleep.

Perhaps it’s because I'm not done fighting.

Maybe it’s because I always remember that I'm greater than them.

I've been blessed with the opportunity to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I know that no matter how dim it looks, I’ll get to it eventually.

The demons that I face are the reason for me being who I am.

The more they try to defeat me, the stronger I get.

Even when I'm overwhelmed by them, and it seems like they are attacking me all at once, I know I'm strong enough to keep fighting.

It says in Ephesians 6:11, "Put on the full armor of God so that you can take a stand against the devil's scheme." So, every day I got my battle gear equipped and ready.

The trials and tribulations of life do nothing but add lines to my victory speech.
