Ready For Battle?

Suit of Armor

A war

Rages roundbout,

Tis tween good and evil.

Saints, are you suited up to fight

The war?

Are you wearing the Armor of God?

Is every piece in place?

Are you standing

For Him?

Standing on The Rock

Bird standing on rocks

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long

Through fortitude I’ll win

I will never give up or in

I have Christ’s power within

To help me stay strong

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long

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!
