There's a line that is drawn through the ages
On that line stands an old rugged cross
On that cross, a battle is raging
To gain a man's soul or it's loss
On one side, march the forces of evil
All the demons, all the devils of hell
On the other, the angels of glory
And they meet on Golgotha's hill
The earth shakes with the force of the conflict
And the sun refuses to shine
For there hangs God's son, in the balance
And then through the darkness he cries

It is finished, the battle is over
It is finished, there'll be no more war
It is finished, the end of the conflict
It is finished and Jesus is Lord

Yet in my heart, the battle was still raging
Not all prisoners of war had come home
These were battlefields of my own making
I didn't know that the war had been won
Oh, but then I heard the king of the ages
Had fought all the battles for me
And that victory was mine for the claiming
And now praise his name, I am free.

    I have been battling for 10 months now to sell my house. Three people have signed purchase agreements. Two fell through. And the last one has been in closing for 2 months. This morning I woke up with this song that I had not heard in a long time. It is finished. The battle is over and jesus is lord! Although final closing papers are not signed, I know that victory is mine for the claiming. With a greatfull heart I praise his wonderful name and I am free from this battle. The war has been won. Thank you jesus!
