The Fight

My dad loved watching boxing.  Me? Guess I never saw the benefit of beating up another person.  However, now that I box with my trainer, I love it.  I can use my boxing gloves for a useful purpose, getting out aggression towards life challenges.  As I write this, I am listening to a song that states we must fight for ourselves and each other.  What does this mean?  How about wearing our boxing gloves (mine are pink for breast cancer) and fighting the battle?  For ourselves.  For others.  For violence. For God's forgiveness for our nation's sin. For mine and your sin.  Whoever said life would be easy?  Certainly not Jesus.  He promises to be right alongside us during the trials and tribulations brought our way. He does not promise life will be easy.  So, put on your boxing gloves and get ready for life!  ~ Susan B.
