When we're fighting for our livesin a championship, we cannot ever give up or concede.

When you have God in your corner, you don't worry about defeat because he can help you win the championship.

"The Fight Of Life Championship"

I put on my boxing gloves and step in the ring to fight with life.

Life threw the first punch to my heart.

I reciprocated with a punch of love from the start.

Life connected with a flurry of punches to my head.

I connected with a flurry of emotions instead.

Life knock me down with a vicious blow.

How I got up, I will never know.

It appears that life has won the first round

But Don't count me out yet, my strength will abound.

The bell rang and I sprang from my feet.

The fight of life is keeping me meek.

I hit life with the word of God.

Life felt the punch that was fast and hard.

Life tried to come back with a punch of heart break and pain.

But I clobbered life with faith and love again.

Life tried to knock me out with an uppercut to the head.

But I punched life out instead.

Life is a formidable opponent in the ring.

But when you got God in your corner, it changes things.
