Broken Warrior / Faithful God

And David inquired of the Lord, “Shall I pursue after this band? Shall I overtake them?” He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake and shall surely rescue.”
1 Samuel 30:8

When a soldier loses in battle
his hope faded
his outlook jaded
assessing the cost in life
at the end of the strife
he is wounded and broken

Knowing such a loss personally
amplified with the capture of family
tears of sorrow and anger
despite the perilous danger
courage resurfaced anew
a resolve to lead a rescue

A broken warrior turns to his faithful God.

God leads the warrior to pursue
the heartless enemy
with a holy fury
trusting God for salvation
deliverance comes to the nation
a broken general presses the rescue

And overtaking the raiders
families are reunited
the battle is one sided
immediate joy in victory
erases the tears of previous defeat
as a faithful God restores

A broken warrior is led by his faithful God.
