Soldier On…

soldier on

So how do you like the new layout?

Red just isn’t a good website color, it had to go. The new are digs simpler but still nice. I hope you enjoy the larger font. I’ve been thinking about this change for a bit now. Finally, got up the nerve to do it. Procrastination is still a problem. Just take a look at my posting intervals.

Seriously…I’m not that busy. I just find other things to do with my free time. They’re fun…sometimes…but what do I really get out of them in the end? Not much besides meaningless entertainment. My time could be better spent, no doubt about it.

I believe God has called me to something bigger but the devil gets in the way too often.  Maybe you’re facing the same kind of struggle. Fear not, if Jesus prepared a place for the one who denied him 3 times, he’ll take care of you and me too. We just have to tell him we’re sorry, vow to do better and never, ever give up.

You could say we have to soldier on and here’s a song about that…

If you could soldier on
Headstrong into the storm
I’ll be here waiting on the other side
Don’t look back
The road is long
The first days of the war are gone
Take back your former throne and turn the tide

Cause if you never leave home, never let go
You’ll never make it to the great unknown till you
Keep your eyes open, my love
So tell me you’re strong, tell me you see
I need to hear it, can you promise me to
Keep your eyes open, my love

Just past the circumstance
The first light, a second chance
No child could ever dance the way you do, oh
Tear down the prison walls
Don’t start the curtain call
Your chains will never fall until you do

Cause if you never leave home, never let go
You’ll never make it to the great unknown till you
Keep your eyes open, my love
So show me your fire, show me your heart
You know I’ll never let you fall apart if you
Keep your eyes open, my love

Open up
Open up
Open up your eyes
The weight is unbroken
Open up
Open up
Open up your eyes
Keep your eyes open

Don’t let the night become the day
Don’t take the darkness to the grave
I know pain is just a place
The will has been broken
Don’t let the fear become the hate
Don’t take the sadness to the grave
I know the fight is on the way
When the sides have been chosen

Cause if you never leave home, never let go
You’ll never make it to the great unknown
Open up your eyes
Keep your eyes open
So tell me you’re strong, tell me you see
I need to hear it, can you promise me to
Keep your eyes open, my love
So show me your fire, show me your heart
You know I’ll never let you fall apart if you
Keep your eyes open, my love

Keep your eyes (Keep your eyes open)
