Assured of Victory

by Michael


Just outside my bedroom window,
I hear you giggling under breath
and hear your scraping ‘gainst my screen,
but you can’t come in, you’re Death.

The sickly smell of hospitals,
and slain young men on battlefield,
family pets on side of road.
There’s so much power that you wield.

My window’s locked, your distance, keep.
It is not time for me to leave.
I’m much too young and I refuse,
to let you make my loved ones grieve.

So drag your coffin back with you.
Fill in the hole, lest YOU fall in.
The God of all is in control
and with His mercy I will win.

My attitude is that of hope.
Assured, I am, of victory.
In Jesus’ name I will be healed.
Don’t believe me?  Well, wait and see.

YES Michael!  Yes..YOU will win!
Your faith and determination is so very strong my friend..
This has got to be my favourite from you now.
The previous one, I believe it was called...
There's Always Hope...was very encouraging
as well...but, in this piece...
Wow! You sound even more determined.
Wonderful!...Prayers and hugs to you!

Powerful!  Dynamic!
It shows how you're not willing to give in without a fight!  I love the self-confidence of your victory.

feel my desire,
let my eyes guide you
into the shadows of my heart

I just so totally admire your attitude, Michael......please don't let it get you down,  no matter what...keep that fighting spirit going...I think its more important than any medicine you can take
