The FULL Armor Of GOD 3-18-08

Every time sins news comes out it throws me to my knees,
and there you'll hear me praying, Lord, help me if you please.
Sin has caused vast famines, lost hope and cursed disease,
but God has always answered clear - to help the least of these.

I ponder sins endurance - throughout the world today,
Greed and shootings, terrorists - all obvious decay.
Often times I only want to hide in my dismay -
but finally put my armor on. It is the only way.

I wrap around my feeble loins the TRUTH of God's decree,
and RIGHTEOUSNESS, my breastplate, is certainly a key.
My feet are shod in Gospel PEACE which makes me ever free,
clasping to my shield of FAITH, I deflect all life's debris.

The Helmet of SALVATION is firmly on my head -
and in my hand the SPIRIT's sword - I read it as I tread.
As He protects the sparrow, and blazed the path ahead,
I follow in His footsteps and trust my Lord instead.

We ponder sins endurance. There's nothing to discuss.
We either do what's in God's will or make a big ol' fuss.
We say that we're too busy - have work, investments, trusts....
Do we really focus on God's will - or selfishly on us?
