Poem - "I am Knocked Back, but Not Knocked Down"
Though I walk through the flames I am only scorched, not consumed. The howling winds blow against me, but I am not swept away. Though the Devil growls and impedes my every step in this lifelong journey, I shall move forward, determined to fulfill the plans God has for me. You plot against me , make schemes, intending to destroy me, but I will advance steadily forward. You take aim with your fiery darts, but my God acts as my shield, and He will protect me from a fatal wound. He will repel your arrows. He will carry me over and through the battlefield. The way is long, but I do not grow weary nor discouraged. In this life there will be hardships, but even more real than the obstacles I face is the unconditional love God has for me. He is my foundation, and I will not be moved.
