And let us not be weary in well doing for in due season we shall reap if we faint not.

Weary of the battle?
Weary of the scorn?
Weary of cynical looks,
Weary of anger?
Weary of the thorns?
Weary of being marginalized?
Weary of being shunned?
Weary of being humiliated?
Weary of the battle?
Weary of kindness being always flipped around as wrong?
Weary of condescension?
Weary of the fiery darts of the devil from people all around?
Weary of the world always recognizing its own?
Weary of the storm?
Weary of the blame
Soldier of the cross,
Follower of the lamb,
Child of the Most High God?

Hold on to the Savior King.
Look unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.
Wait upon the King of Kings,
Dwell and inhabit His word
Run to the throne room of the King of Kings
Whose greatest delight is You,
Child of the Most High God,
And He will give us
His Royal golden eagle wings
So that we can soar above it all.
So that we can renew our strength with His.
So that we can exchange our weakness
With His omnipotent strength.
So that His strength becomes our song
As we soar high above
Mountains,
Valleys,
Desserts,
And storms!

Hold on Soldier of the Cross,
Follower of the Lamb,
For weariness is a badge of honor
To all those who are in genuine pursuit of
Christlikeness,
Righteousness,
Peace,
Purity,
And love.

Hold on Soldier of the Cross,
Follower of the Lamb,
For when in pursuit of Christ,
The enemy is in pursuit of you
To discourage,
To defeat,
To disillusion,
To destroy,
To demean!
But is not the way up for the soldier of the cross
When down upon our knees in bold and fervent praise and prayer ?
For is this not the victorious posture the enemy cannot bear?
Pray and worship
Soldier of the Cross,
Follower of the Lamb!

Hold on
Soldier of the Cross,
Follower of the Lamb,
For victory is yours
Because of the blood of the Lamb.
For He alone takes away the sins of the world.
For He alone gives the gift of salvation and makes all things new.
For He alone, in the midst of a battle,
Gives the weary, wounded warrior
Wings like eagles,
And eyes of faith to see
This world is not our home!

This is so beautiful. Often poetry doesn't sink in my thick head as well as fiction but your words just grabbed my heart and I could feel hope soaring around me.

The only things I might suggest and they are just my opinion is that you might want to balance it a tad more. I liked how Jesus is the answer to all the things we are weary of, but I'm afraid that some people may skim over the second part if they feel it is saying the same thing over and over and I would hate to have anyone miss your beautiful ending. I got goosebumps when I read the last line and could see life with new eyes. You did an outstanding job with this one.

WOW - This was amazing! I loved it. I really cannot say much more than that.

Clearly, you are a very talented writer, who, like many in here,"loves God."

Thank you.

God Bless,
