If I Bleed, Fail, or Win…My Orders Are To Fight

I received comfort and renewed courage from Tullian’s words and the poem he shares:

We’re told to plant and water; God alone controls the results.

Our task as faithful disciples is proclaimed by the Welsh poet Ethelwyn Wetherald:

My orders are to fight;
Then if I bleed, or fail,
Or strongly win, what matters it?
God only doth prevail.
The servant craveth naught
Except to serve with might.
I was not told to win or lose-
My orders are to fight.

[HT: Tullian Tchividjian]
