“The Tug-of-War of Life”


I want to share with you a vision that I received as I was reading a posting about forgiveness. It was  a “Tug-of -War of Life”. You see, there are decisions that we have to make in life each day. We have to chose if we want God’s plan, Satan’s plan or somewhere in the middle. It’s our choice. Then as I started writing it, it was all rhyming…so here goes:

“The Tug-of-War of Life”

Tug-of-War…
a game we used to play.
But when we think about it…
we are in a tug-of-war  each day.
Being pulled from side to side…
or yanked from post to post.
Are we keeping our eyes on the Prize…
or just succumbing to past-ghosts.
Do you feel the pull…
choosing from good or bad?
Or maybe your emotions…
going from happy to sad?
What about forgiveness…
choosing to forgive and forget?
Or maybe choosing the other…
holding onto anger and regret?
Which direction are you heading
or which side do you choose?
Are you reaching for righteousness…
or Satan pulling you where you’ll lose.
For there is a tug-of-war…
going on for each of our souls.
And it is only with God…
that we can reach our Divine goals.
For our wounds are deep…
and too numerous to count.
But God heals all…
and His blessings are surmount.
It is only through Him…
that we can all overcome.
For we are all in this tug-of-war…
but many will succumb.
So hold onto God…
every moment of every day.
And He will do the pulling…
for you to go His way.

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2

If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20

“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” 1 Corinthians 15:33

Dear Lord, I thank You for giving me this vision of a constant tug-of-war between right and wrong, good and evil. I pray that You open the eyes of all of your children that they will not be deceived. That they will reach for the good, acceptable and perfect will of God, not settling for less that Your best in this tug-of-war in life… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
