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
