“Faith That’s Concrete”

It’s amazing what a man learns when he stands firm.
See the bread lasts when you’re steadfast.
Life requires that you’re ready;
One must have fire in their belly.

The wicked have venom in ‘em and it’s deadly,
But God will part them like the Red Sea.
You can turn bondage to abundance if you plant and water,
You think your climb was tough…for an ant it’s harder.

The word to the soul is lunches,
So keep your guard up and roll with the punches.
God has set the table, here’s your plate, so come eat.
To travel this road, it takes faith that’s concrete.
