Equipped to Overcome

Fragile is the human frame
it shatters easily,
sharp words like arrows
can inflict great injury.
Like a steady drip of water
that wears away a stone,
life can chip away at us
right down to the bone.

We need strong conviction
to walk in God's light,
and spiritual strength
to fight the good fight.

We'll be tested to the limit,
battered and abused,
mocked and persecuted
and by the enemy accused.

Despite our mortal weakness
we're equipped by the Lord
to endure the opposition
with His two-edged sword.

God's word is the weapon
that keeps satan on the run,
by using it against him
great victories are won.
The world, flesh and devil
fight against our feeble frame,
but keep in mind my friends
we overcome in Jesus' name!

John16:33  "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."

Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
