Behind the song "Fight"
Have you ever found yourself in a fight you didn't ask for or a fight you didn't start?
Whether it is sickness, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, injuries, job loss, a past that sticks with you, etc. etc. etc.
A lot of times we don't ask for what life hands us, but here it is anyway like a solicitor on our front porch.
I don't know about you, but my first instinct is to ignore the main problem.
Let's pretent like it's not there, maybe it will go away.
I knew the anxiety was getting worse, but did not want to admit it and fix it so it grew and grew and grew until the moment it was either have a complete breakdown and self-destruction or to say "no more" and fight it.
That is where this song "Fight" came from. That nagging issue that I knew had to be dealt with. I didn't ask for this and if it had left me alone I would've been ok.
I didn't ask for this, but somehow this fight found me and got me to the place that I was.
I buried it so long it "festered till it was rank" and those "white flags of [surrender to the problem] didn't get me very far." (lines in the song.)
I want to encourage you to stop ignoring whatever it is that is hanging over your head and just finish it. Take the control of your life back piece by piece and allow Jesus to start the healing process needed- for whatever it is- he is able and by his strength you are able.
The words in the bridge are:
Lying face up on the ground
Counting stars spinning round
Clear the fog in my head
to find that I was left for dead
Beat me once shame on you
Beat me twice you'll never do
Round 2's just begun
I'll keep swinging till I've won
That "thing" might have got you in round one, but round 2 is all yours - if not you'll get it in round 3,4, or 10, don't give up!
Get up and fight whatever battle you need to fight - whether you asked for it or not go ahead and finish it so you can move on.
I can do all things through Him who gives me strength. Phillipians 4:13
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [a]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
