At different times in my life, fighting the good fight of faith has meant varying things.
Fight for truth
Fight for my marriage
Fight to teach my children
Fight to pay bills
Fight to get ahead
Fight for my sanity
But, there has been and always will be something, someone to fight for.
By nature, I detest fighting and have hated confrontation. From my earliest memories I hid and ran from fights.
Now as an adult I can certainly see the need to fight for what is good and necessary.
BUT, also see the need to let many wars go unattended,
deciding to keep my interest focused on what is in front of me and will only be with me a short time.... is how I manage my sanity (which can be debated) and keep wars to a minimum.
Remember who the enemy is...it is certainly satan, he is our greatest adivisary, it can be our own expectations and mind, and it is always time! We are human and only here for a given number of days. Seize that which is best and important to the Kingdom of God. Fight for what is good. Allow yourself to enjoy the asignments given to you by God.
Life is a gift, live it
Life is a gift, give it!
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession; That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of Lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen. Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
1 Timothy 6:6-17 KJV
