Press on to heights of glory now,
And keep the steady eye.
One must not falter in this fight
Though some may flee or fly.
Take hold the charge thou hast been given,
To battle we must go.
But not with our own maiden hands
Do we take shield or bow.
We wage this war with words and actions,
With our every deed.
We follow Christ our Captain,
Through Him we will succeed.
Tell me now, have we forgot?
The charge from God above?
To keep our hearts in purity,
Grace, modesty, truth, and love.
These are our weapons,
Our shields, our swords;
In this battle we now fight.
We strive not for an earthly king,
But for our God of truth and might!
I am a 23 year old young lady who is redeemed and saved from my sin only by the grace of God. A bibliophile at heart with a love of history who desires to see the Word of God practically applied to all aspects of our daily lives -- in our homes, in the grocery store, in the political realm. I strive to put my jumbled, chaotic thoughts down onto paper -- reducing them into black and white rows, letters, sentences. Into some semblance of sanity. And I share them here with all of you, where I can challenge you, make you think, and cause you to ask questions. I am the oldest of eleven children living the country life in the deep south.
