April, 2013 Poem of the Month
“Battle Mode”
The Fight of Faith

Through the rigors, give me vigor,
Take control and make me bold, even when the opponent’s bigger.
When the devil tries to give me symptoms I’m exempt from,
I’ll seek you and your redemption.
Help me walk the straight and narrow and to hit full stride.
Make me the greatest arrow aimed at God’s bull’s-eye.

To glorify the best we must mortify the flesh.
With the Lord nothing is impossible and we’re fortified and blessed.
We can’t allow ourselves to be pulled into the realm of the scene.
Why worry about the trial, when at the helm is your king?

We should not shiver when something towers,
Because God delivers and empowers.
Pray when there’s a giant,
Slay your bears and lions.
It takes a lot of meditation,
A plot and dedication,
The rock of revelation,
So don’t stop or get impatient,
Because no one tops God’s elevation.

God’s grace is sufficient and he’s not wasting any,
Despite our sin he invites us in to a place of plenty.
Unless the eyes stay focused on God and rapture,
We will not reach the broader pastures.

Don’t shy away from warfare or ask, “Why this fight?”
Jesus says you’re the victor and are there by his stripes.
When iron sharpens iron… sparks will fly,
Just as the brightest days follow the darkest skies.
Anointed minds, appointed times, never rattle or fold,
Here we stand Lord, a three strand chord… ready in battle mode.
