There are times when I feel like a thousand armies are descending upon me, and that death is knocking at my door. Sometimes I just want to let go and give it all up. But then I think about my sons, my marriage, the ministry I serve in, and all the generations coming behind me. My mindset shifts from giving up, to feeling like if it's a fight my enemy wants, it's a fight he's gonna get!

No matter how dark it gets, as long as there is breath in my body, I'm going to keep fighting the battle. Come hell or high water, I'm not backing up until the negativity breaks! Winston Churchill once said, "I like a man that smiles when he fights." I laugh at the pressure and smile at the blows that think they will knock me to my knees!

How will YOU fight in the shade?
