Weekend Worship—Warriors of God
Warriors of God
by Edie Melson
Trenches deep, the fighting hard,
Weary warriors returning scarred.
God touches the wounds, sculpting each face,
Etching in lines the proof of His grace.
Deep in the dark, hidden from sight,
God readies His own to shine in the light.
Agonizing sacrifices with rewards so great,
A crown from His hand worth any wait.
He holds precious the faith of each one,
Bestowing His blessing, “My servant, well done.”
I want to dedicate this post to a precious friend of mine, Sandi Rog, as she battles health issues that most of us can't imagine enduring. Her attitude mirrors God's grace and I'm humbled to call her friend. In the midst of this battle, her debut novel, The Master's Wall, hit the shelves this week and I encourage you to seek it out.
