Not one thing will stand between me and my God
I refuse it.
I have lied to him, cheated him, forsaken him, forgotten him, and fallen so far of where he held me.
No longer. I am done bringing shame.
God is my rock and his word is my sword and my faith is my shield.
I will defend him, no matter the cost, and when I feel broken, I will run to him and nothing else.
No person, no image, and no desire will overcome it. Not anymore.
NOT ANYMORE! I’m tired of fighting for myself. I’m tired of fighting myself.
I’ve always known what I’ve had to do and no longer am I going to neglect that.
This is my statement. This is my pledge. I’ve broken one too many, and should I feel the temptation to break it I pray God throw me to the ground to have me remember.
I am a soldier of his. I will fight like it.
I’ll come home with the knowledge that he can smile upon me for defending the faith and being there for my fellow soldiers through and through.
To anybody who knew me, knows me, or will come to know me:
This is my pledge. Hold me to it.
