Like Joshua

Resolutely, I study the problem,
Day after day, 
I circumambulate the walled city, 
impenetrable as Jericho.  
I ponder its formidability, 
consider my inadequacies. 
Following the Spirit, Spirit-led,
I make my way around 
bouldered obstacles.
Prayerfully, I practice
the most judicious path,
grow in strength and knowledge. 
On the final day, I lay aside
my fears, gather confidence, 
faith, and courage. 
Seven times, I compass 
the prize, discomfit the
enemy, assault the 
fortress with a mighty shout.
Walls come tumbling down.
