Warrior is a Child

As a woman,
a wife,
a mama,
a grandma,
a daughter,
a friend,
a sister,
there are so many times I just need to 'go running home' and 'drop my sword and cry for just awhile'.
Years ago when I first got saved this song was a favorite and I have lost track of it over the years. Just today, as I have been still, thinking, praying, being humbled and broken by my Father, I remembered it. It seems so fitting for how I am feeling.
So many people say, "I don't know how you do it" or "you're so strong", but like the song says, they don't see inside of me, they don't know WHO picks me up when I fall down. They don't see the enemies that lay me at His feet.
Aren't you so thankful for Jesus?
Can you imagine walking through this life without Him? I have included the lyrics, I think they are so powerful. If you are feeling a bit beat up or tired, sit back and listen to this song and let Jesus pick you back up.
Grace and Mercy to you!
Warrior is a Child
by Twila Paris
Lately I've been winning battles left and right
But even winners can get wounded in the fight
People say that I'm amazing
Strong beyond my years
But they don't see inside of me
I'm hiding all the tears
They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and cry for just a while'
Cause deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child
Unafraid because His armor is the best
But even soldiers need a quiet place to rest
People say that I'm amazing
Never face retreat
But they don't see the enemies
That lay me at His feet
They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and and cry for just a while
'Cause deep inside this armor the warrior is a child
They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and look up for a smile
'Cause deep inside this armor
Deep inside this armor
Deep inside this armor

Michelle...It has been a LONG time since I have heard Twila Paris....I have always loved her music. Yes....THIS warrior is also a child, and I find myself at His feet more often than I can count. Thank God He saves to the uttermost.

I had not heard that song...but the one I always come back to when I think homeschooling is too hard, or any other God-led thing in my life (marriage, motherhood, etc) is also by Twila Paris...Center of His Will. I've been outside and it's not a nice place to be. So, even though it's hard sometimes, I just remember how much harder it was outside. :)
