Being in a Battle

Whatever you're going through, be encouraged.

The battle is the Lord's!

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NIV)

"9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: 10 If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."

Thanks for posting this, Judith. Sometimes I forget and try to fight all alone. Love & Blessings.

Ah, yes, Marion. I know the scripture well, but I have never looked at it in that way. I have always seen the others here as physical beings. For me, it a powerful commentary on the importance of community. But your view is beautiful too. The essence is we are not "all alone." Thank you.
