The Battle Collection (2012)

 

This is a collection currently evolving. It is updated with my present season of life, as a mere three months ago I lost someone very precious to me, my six day old son. That was the toughest season of my life and as I journeyed through that time, I yearn for a new season of life, a healthier, happier one. I am currently working towards that with exercise, discipline, meditation and more, but the devil is working profusely to knock me down everyday, using someone and someplace that is supposed to be helping me heal to do the complete opposite. So every day I wake up, I’m in a new battle, a battle for my soul and well-being. This is a war, I must win for my and my family’s sake, and so that I would be a strong soldier in God’s army.
