You and I may or may not face actual invaders into our homeland, but we will all face battles. Whether we ever wear camouflage or not, being warriors is in our DNA. And the better we are at being warriors, the more equipped we will be at winning the battles we have been destined to win from all eternity.
You are so beautiful, my beloved, so perfect in every part. SONG OF SOLOMON 4:7, NLT
I wonder if it isn't a slap in God's face when we don't like who He made us to be and want something else.
The battle you are in is toning you. It can be your ceiling in life or a stepping-stone to your future. Your choice.
