battle ready

when you see your enemies in
the dark of night when you
close your eyes and see their
horses and chariots at every
turn you must do battle
with your fears let not your
courage falter
face down your panic and
dread
for it is the lord
your god that struggles with
you be strong and never forget
this is only the way
you can do the work
of peace

(Deuteronomy 20:1-4)

    Maybe a metaphor for facing one’s fears and hopes in daily challenges?
