Christianity, The Struggle Can Be Real

by Jason Kirk Bartley

Christianity is not always easy.
Who said it ever was?
But the victory is within us, through His precious blood.
It is worth your journey,
for your sacrifice made.
Where we are going, the devil cannot follow,
though he tries so hard to discourage and persuade. 
But we know our Saviour’s voice,
the one that gives life.
It is a far cry from the one that causes strife. 
Though sometimes we may get weary
for we know the struggle can get real,
Jesus shows up to lift our spirit and give us zeal.
Then we can face the world,
and not let it infiltrate.
God will always show up,
never early and never late.
Be encouraged, all those who hope in the Lord.
