Pray For The Fight

I have a confession to make.  I dream of a comfortable life.  I dream of blue sky days filled with laughter every single day.  Shall I go on?  This girl, right here, she's a dreamer.  I think I can fill a thousand journals and write for days about things that I want, for myself, for my children, for the future.  I think I'm developing a bucket list: Disney World fireworks, the glacier at Yellow stone, Mt. Zion in Utah.  Santorini in Greece...  There is just so much to see, isn't there?  I'm gluten intolerant but there is still so much to eat.  There is so much I would like to do.  I was talking with my son and we talked about the possibility of writing a book.  He asked me what I would write about.  I wouldn't know.  I would just let a story write itself.  

Is this world for comfort though?  I don't think that this world is a world of wants.  I think we are called in this world to fight.  Fighting... I think I have talked about fighting before.  I have to constantly remind myself to fight.  I could.  I think I could try for the life of comfort but I think for this girl right here, I need a good fight.   I Timonty 6:12 (You know that a Bible verse was coming) "Fight the good fight of the faith.  Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses."  Man, I could think of creature comforts for days but I have all of eternity to be in comfort.  Right now I'm all about the fight.  My biggest fight is myself.  I have to fight myself out of trying to live a comfortable life.  When they say that the struggle is real, they weren't kidding!  I think I could stay in bed all day if you let me.  Pray for the fight.  We are only here for a minute on this earth.  I think that the fight is worth it.
