"You have put off the old self with its habits, and have put on the new self . . . which is God continually renewing his own image, to bring you to a full knowledge of himself. " Col 3:9-10
Boxing and the Bedside Table
The boxing match within
Will only end with my life on earth.
Two fighters training hard,
Waiting for that next bell.
How do I sway the fight?
My eternity is on the line.
Stacks of books on the bedside table

How to be a better parent,
How to be a better wife,
A Better teacher, friend and servant
A better person, a better life.
Your Word is now on top.
There are no novels to put me to sleep
No plots to keep my interest.
Just new paths to finding You.
Better training for the "new self"
You silhouette is sharper.
Keeping the "old self" down,
Out of shape, tired, and hungry.
The advantage is too great.
But the underdog is always hungry,
Lord, with your Word on my bedside table
I will take it round by round.
Punch for punch
Word for Word
Me for You
