Segula – A Warrior & A Child

Posted: October 20, 2010 in Segula

i am not able to get away from this deep, abiding faith and trusting God one day and falling so far from it the next. The Israelites took generations to fall back into the same old same old. Yesterday i used a song that says the warrior is a child. That’s me. A warrior one day and a child the next. Sometimes both in the same day. i remember with my first grandson how quickly he forgot the gifts that i would give him. We would go to the store and i could see his eyes light up at a particular item and i of course would buy it for him. Last Christmas was like that. I got him a remote-controlled helicopter. After the purchase i decided that it was to babyish for him and so i exchanged it for a more grown up one and of course double the price. Before we left Seattle, i mean within a few days, he had left it lying on the floor in exchange for a more recent fascination. He’s a child!

i am noticing a trend about me and just perhaps the Israelites as well. i’m a warrior when things are fresh and new. When a word of revelation or understanding comes i’m all over it. i am so grateful!! Then time passes and i become less grateful and so i lose focus on what i was given. Just like my grandson. Now as a child he doesn’t realize what’s taking place and i wish i could say the same but…. or can i?

Being ungrateful is so subtle that i don’t realize it until i’m at a dangerous place. Did the Israelites become ungrateful and then decide to not serve God? Were they so ungrateful that they decided to select the latest, newest god that was available?

Well today i just want to listen to the song because today i think i am a child. And… i feel like i must ask myself, am i a child because i am ungrateful?  i’ll close today by simply commenting through-out the song. Never mind, i’ll just let you read the words and ask for your prayers.

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 cry for just a while
‘Cause deep inside this armor, deep inside this armor, the warrior is a child!

      I’m sorry you did not get what you were looking for. As i have been posting for years i do not believe for one moment that all or any of these are good for any other purpose than passing information on to my children and grandchildren and more importantly to hold me accountable to having daily relationship with God. I have no intention that these are to teach anyone anything. My job as a pastor and writer is not to have all the answers but to stir you up to find your own answers. Again i’m sorry that you are disappointed but i do my best each day.
