The War Zone

by Cindy Jones  
4/08/2007 / Poetry

We wake up and find ourselves in
the middle of a war zone.
How did we get there?
We question .. did I do something wrong?
Do I deserve this?
We feel alone .. forsaken.
We grow weary and feel
as if we have no energy to go on.
" I will just go to bed and cover my head"
Ah, does this all sound familiar
to you .. a Christian?
Well, welcome to reality
where you are not alone in
these feelings .. these anxieties.
No, you are not alone in this war !
Life is surrounded with flying
obstacles that are assigned to
disrupt your life.
But, look up, Child of God.
For you have a hope
that others do not have.
This is only a chapter in your life.
It is not the ending ..
Change your outlook
your perspective of things
and realize that you
have been designated a " Victor ".
How do I know ?
Because I too walk in this war zone.
In a chapter in my life that
may hold some momentary discouragement.
But, I too know Hope ..
For I know the end of the story !
With Hope, even in the battle,
we can hold the banner of victory
high .. we can celebrate.
The battle only challenges you
when you fail to rest in the
Author of the story.
When you fail to see the end with eyes of faith.
No, you are not alone,
nor were you ever.
You see many have walked in this
same war zone ..
Many before you or I ..
They had faith .. they knew the author.
They left us with hope ..
They left us with truth.
For the Lord is our Victor.
The battle is just part of the story.
It is but a mere chapter in it.
Thus when you focus on the final
chapter, you will find
a glorious ending ..
Thus, then will He say,
"It is finished !"

I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother of six and a minister of the gospel. My heart is for people who have been damaged by the hands of man and who feels themselves unworthy of love. It is our jobs, as Christians, to be the carrier of Good News, not the carrier of being a Judge.

Your writing on The War Zone came to me at the perfect time in my life. A time where I was mislead by others and thought I was doing the right thing. A time in my life where I was listening to everyone but God. Please read The Church part one and two I wrote and see what I went through for over two years. Your words came after I had wrote the piece and touched my heart and gave me hope Rhonda McKissack
