Consider all of your innermost desires.
Put them forward, enumerate them.
Now give them shape, mold them into persons, assign them wills and personality.
Let them breathe and move, determine and act.
Fit them with armor, equip them with weapons of war, bestow them with honor as soldiers, let them be brave and resolved in the face of oppression.
Observe their majesty, their shields glistening in the sun, their banners raised high, their battle cry heard throughout heaven and earth as they array themselves in formation against their enemies.
Now look forward.
See the King of Heaven return.
Will the soldiers of your heart welcome him as their commander and fight for him?
Or, will they muster their courage, never surrender, and fight against him until the last drop of blood is spilled from their ranks?
