What are battles and how do they apply to your life?

Battles are defined by Websters New World Dictionary (2018), as a sustained fight between large, organized armed forces; fight or struggle tenaciously to achieve or resist something (Agnes 2018).

So, what is a battle, and how does it apply to your life? It applies because you are in a constant battle to find your purpose and to become great! We allow ourselves to be in a constant state of resistance. We do not accept situations for what they are, we attempt to make them into something they are not.

Battles are things we deal with on a daily basis. For example, we battle demons, lost souls, generational curses, negative energy, and our own sanity sometimes. We battle other people’s attitude, along with the demos they carry. Ask yourself how many times you flipped someone the bird, in traffic, or got so upset you sped up to slow down in front of them? If you answered yes, then you were, in fact, in a battle at that exact moment.

(Guess what, that battle was a complete waste of your time and energy! What purpose did it serve? Did you feel better afterward, or did you continue to think about it for a while, maybe even talked about it to someone? Did you grow from the experience? If no, then why did you do it?)

Our minds are in a constant battle for growth and we resist it! Our bodies are in a battle to stay healthy, and we still ingest unhealthy foods and liquids every day. Our spirits yearn for the connection to our creator, and what do we do? We resist that as well.

Ask yourself, if today was the last day you had here on earth, would you have battled anything today? Would you have allowed the negative energy into your personal space? Would you want to waste your time on a battle or would you rather enjoy life and try to accomplish something before you left?

I encourage you to recognize the battles you face daily, and ask yourself are they worth your time? I encourage you to choose your battles wisely, your time here is precious, tomorrow is not promised to any of us! Stop allowing those battles to hinder you while you are here, find your purpose, and be great!

Stop partaking in battles that are not yours to fight. Stop fighting battles that hinder your growth. Only fight battles that will help you grow! You have a purpose in life, stop resisting it! If you knew your worth you would not partake in the nonsense that will hinder you! Take responsibility for you, and change your approach. Know your worth!



“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell”


“Some of the greatest battles will be fought within the silent chambers of your own soul”

Ezra Taft Benson

“If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles”

Sun Tzu

  1. “Stop partaking in battles that are not yours to fight…” Thank you! I have a tendency to take on others’ problems before my own! Need a reminder sometimes…
