Peace, be still, Jesus said

Endeavor to keep unity in the Spirit

And let the peace of God dwell in you

Cover yourself with His Armor and

Equip yourself to walk in His peace

Acrostic

Now the God of peace be with you all.

Redoubtable Enemy

Knights in battle

Quite fearful, yes,

A formidable opponent,

Sent to cause fear.

Yet God’s Armor protects me,

If I but wear it,

And stand firm resisting this

Foe, who hurls his darts

Of doubt, trying to wound my heart,

Until they meet the shield of faith.

Choka

Poem Inspired by Dictionary.com—Word Of The Day—Redoubtable

Origin

English redoubtable comes from Middle English redoutable “terrible, frightening, worthy of honor, venerable,” ultimately from Old French redotable, redoubtable, a derivative of the verb redouter “to fear, dread.” Redouter is formed from a French use of the prefix re- as an intensive (for instance, in refine), a use that Latin re- does not have, and from Latin dubitāre “to doubt, hesitate, waver” (but not “to fear”). Redoubtable entered English in the first half of the 15th century.

Tears of Regret

Above,

Soft voice speaks:

“Saint, why are you crying?”

“My heart has been wounded today

I’m hurt”

I say.

“Ah, tis so I see”

Says He from high above.

“Why is your armor in your closet

Today?”

“Forgot”

I reply shamefully,

Hanging my head in woe.

“I was in a hurry and had places

To go”.

“I see”

Says He from high,

“ Your mind and body was

Unprotected from the enemy’s wiles

And so,

He had

Access to harm

You. Dear Saint always be

Aware and your armor to wear

Each day”

Unclad

Unworn Armor

We smiled, chittering and chattering

As daylight filled with bright sunshine

Spilled upon us walking sprightly.

In the distance a lion roared

But the sound did not reach

Our quiescent ears

Dulled by sleep.

Our guard down,

The lion

Strikes!

Caught

Off guard

We scramble

To stand and fight

The enemy attack.

Unprepared for battle,

Head and heart vulnerable

To fleshly fear and worldly anger,

We attempt to vanquish our beastly foe

Unprotected. We cry out for God to help us!
