What are you fighting?
“Stop fighting a fight, it’s already been won.”
From “I am redeemed” by Big Daddy Weave
I’ve heard this song on the Christian radio station hundreds of times, but never listened to the words. The other night, driving home from work, these words really caught my attention.
Whether you’re a Christian or not, don’t you ever feel like you are fighting something that really isn’t worth it, or it’s not even your battle, or it’s over and done with and you still are hanging onto it? Maybe someone unintentionally hurt your feelings years ago and you still remember it, you still hold a grudge against that person. Or maybe you didn’t get the job you felt you were so qualified for. Or maybe your spouse has been cheating on you and your heart just feels so filled with hatred that you can’t see straight.
There are a hundred different scenarios and we have each had one whittling away at us. And where has that gotten us?
Whatever you are keeping inside of you, whatever is eating at you, let it go. Stop fighting something that may or may not even be there. The battle is over and done with.
