If Angels Go With Me...

I apologize for the lack of posts lately. My cup of busyness "runneth over" lately, and though against my will, neglect has fallen directly and foremost on Kingdom Advancing. Further, the end of the Dakota Fanning, Hounddog, saga left me with less of a sense of duty and urgency to post something else.

This is not to say that I don't have things to write about. On the contrary, there are many topics I would love to make commentary on. But, at this time, my amount of posting will not be able to accommodate a lot of issues.

Still, I am by no means and in no way abandoning this blog, and I hope you will not either.

For now, I still can't post a full-fledged article, but I thought that I'd publish a poem. I encourage you to check out the rest of the poetry that I've put on Kingdom Advancing.

Christians often get discouraged, frightened, and beaten down in their good fight. Sometimes, I think too much focus is placed on the enemy--the devil and his demons. We should always remember that we have the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and transitively angels on our side. This poem, entitled "If Angels Go With Me," embodies the confidence and courage that Christians should possess, focusing especially on angels in this specific poem.

If angels go with me, at what shall I tremble?
If I go with an army that God has assembled?
In-visible, flying, and nimble,
If angels go with me, at what shall I tremble?

If angels go with me, where shall I not go?
With them by my side, above, and below.
If angels go with me, and this I do know,
If angels go with me, where shall I not go?

If angels go with me, walls will come crashing,
Regardless of pain, I'll withstand the full thrashing,
And I'll not be disheartened by a simple tongue-lashing.
If angels go with me, walls will come crashing.

If demons shall charge me, why should I flinch?
If know I that angels are there in a pinch,
As my battle buddies, right there in the trench,
If demons shall charge me, why should I flinch?

If angels go with me, I know this besides,
That Jesus is with me, and with me abides.
And if Jesus is with me, from whom shall I hide?
If angels go with me, I know this besides.

If angels go with me, they're sent by the Lord,
And if sent by the Lord, then I know this and more,
That the God Who is after and the God who's before,
Is the God Who's protecting me evermore.
