These words from a song by Steve Camp are such a constant reminder of our life of faith. Keep struggling in the net….
I’ve done battle with the world today, and again she brought me down
The lady took my pride away, as she claimed her victor’s crown
I’m weak and oh so broken, and upon these words I’m choking
For I’m just another one struggling in the net of Peter
I grow so weary trying to run this race
Though my heart starts out sincerely, all too soon it is disgraced.
Some people place me on a pedestal, but the air is too thin up there you know
For you see I’m just another one struggling in the net of Peter, struggling in the net of peter
When you’re fighting to stay alive it’s easy to get burned, I need you as my constant defender
Be patient with your child, you know I’m slow to learn – that you’re constantly changing the heart of this pretender
As I pray for my protection from the evils of this day,
May You work on my affections, let it be burning me page by page
Oh bury its truth deep in my bones, Let your love remind me that I’m not my own.
That I’m just another one still struggling in the net of Peter, well I’m struggling in the net of Peter
You are my constant defender
With You on my side I’ll never surrender, no no
With You in my life I’ve got victory
With You in my heart there is hope for me
