Reminder poetry.

Woke up with the residue of dreams

spread across my mind

stealing joy like black-robed burglars

sneaking for a dime

breaking in without invite

throwing daggers in the dark

but Jesus said the liars

They won’t leave a mark.

Jesus said, my child,

in your weakness I am strong

Don’t worry about your past

Or whatever else went wrong

See I took it all and used it

You gave it all to me

You’re not living for the moment

but for all eternity!

Stretched out before you

Can’t you hear me call you?

I took your hand

so you could stand.

So stand up! Stand tall.

I took the daggers. I took them ALL.

I took the shame. I took the fall.

And when I said “It is finished”

I mean it. It ended there.

At the cross

was the loss

of your sin and your shame

the justification


the end of the game.

Rise up in my love for you.

Stand up – I am stronger.

Only I can love you longer.

See people will talk

No man came tame the tongue

And they’ll search out doubt and lies

Until the earth is done

But understand

Take hold of that truth

that never changes

The love that never rearranges

The ordered and clear peace of my message.

I am with you.

The Armor of God

Ephesians 6

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
