Matt. 6: 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.


Will you resist temptation
As it’s knocking on your door?
Will the past you try to run from
Come calling to prowl for more?

There’s truth amid the ruins
Of all you seek outside
If only man would look within
His light it could not hide.

Will sin beat and batter
Your soul you try to waken
Will you embrace the darkness
That has your self  forsaken?

I see you hugging evil
in the liars den.
You stroke the hand of many
Calling them your friend.

See them turn away from you
In disgust as you glower
Sin is not a pretty pic
Disguised as a flower.

The sinful man cannot see
The harm that he has done
His only triumph is in himself
And battles he has won.

He stands alone looking proud
Of all of his possessions.
Appearing as a man of truth
Leaking false impressions.

Temptation has a hold;
His will to fight is bleak.
Look to find the Lord within
The Light to all you seek.

Luke 8: 13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.

Temptations surround us. They contribute to disbelief. Much like that disbelief that comes with material wealth. After all, how can there be a god if there are Ipods, or spaceships, or television!

Gimme those goodies! But don't tell me there's a god I might be responsible to!

*HUGS!* Another good'un, Ma'am.

There IS a God we're responsible to and every day, since we have the will to do what we want, I see man losing the battle of good vs. evil.

It's a hard fought battle but one we as humans must FIGHT and WIN! :D

We will win it for ourselves, but Mankind will lose. IS losing. Just as the Scriptures tell us. <3

Strait is the path but narrow is the gait, or so scripture says. :)
