- Our first natural instinct when we obtain an injury is stand still and assess the situation and severity of our wounds. Often we are in shock, and unbelief spreads through us like a disease causing us confusion. We allow this deception to color our perception and misdiagnose our true state of being.
- Our second natural instinct is to remain still in fear of increasing the damage, but that's the wrong move. When we're in the middle of a battle field - we need to seek shelter, avoid further attack and obtain medicine - seek out our Strong Fortress and our Tower of Strength. The only way we can do that is to keep moving forward; keep pressing on - even through all the pain.
- Our third natural instinct is to retreat into ourselves and give up. When has ever putting our lives into the hands of our enemies ever benefit us? If our enemy allows us to live, we become their living prisoners; slaves to the things which have wounded us and will continue to wound us periodically at their choosing.
The enemy is still dropping bombs all around me, shooting arrows at me and plotting against me, but I'm still pressing on. I'm sure I'll obtain some more war wounds until my mission is complete, but I know that other days like this - a day when I can look back and see how far I've come - are on the horizon.
Till next time,
