What Wolves Are You Fighting? (Tell the story challenge)

When darkness is around you and black howls of night

Remember this gives wolves the chance at a fight

For they can be prowlers and howlers so scary and mean

Those wolves of discouragments trying to get in

They come as shape shifters, to slay and to kill

Discouraging trials against hope and goodwill

Or maybe those wolves come in shapes of real doubt

Doubting God’s goodness within and without

Trials that bite and tear at your heart

Can a kind Father let your good life depart?

Or maybe your wolf is a wolf of unbelief

Thinking your God cares not for your soul’s grief

What now can be happening, you say, I can’t figure

I just slayed one wolf now the pack has grown bigger

A wolf of worry sneaked up on your couch

Sniffing and making you dread all life’s ouch

The big hungry wolf you can’t get out of your hair

The relentless belligerent wolf of despair

He always attacks when you’re not on your feet

Forcing the thoughts that you’re now in defeat

Dear friend, go to God in prayer for this fight

Your strength to slay wolves is because of His might

His word put around as shields to protect you

Those wolves won’t get in, since His promises hold true

God gives you His strength in the darkness of night

Hold on and slay wolves knowing God is your light

  1. Wolves will chase prey for miles. And they’ll nip and wound prey to where they’re so winded and so hurt, they’ll surrender.

    Great post my friend! 🙂

      1. I’m glad you had fun! That’s what it’s all about!

        Yes ma’am.. they nip at the rear end and usually the prey will exhaust from running and blood loss.

      2. Wolves will go after a strong animal, but mostly the young, old, wounded or sick. Ones that show weakness. Then they try to force the animal to separate from it’s pack and then chase and wound until they can go in for the kill.

        All why we need to be very close to the Lord. The Shepherd can fight wolves, we cannot.

    1. This is so true! I do like it and saved it to my group board. There comes a time in life when we realise this truth; that people will abandon us or walk away……I never had a pet do that. Thanks John. I haven’t cried since yesterday so that’s progress.
