There are times when we feel like all we're doing is "locking antlers" as we vie for love. God's love comes in the midst of our battles and quiets us. The battle doesn't necessarily come to an end, but His presence calms the storm within.
"The LORD our God is in your midst, the victorious warrior, He will rejoice over you with joy; He will guiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing." Zephaniah 3:17
