The Fiery Dart

The whisper of the enemy that I don’t fit in

tried to lure me back into sin.

Why do the ways of the world set my heart to beating

when I know they are only moments of pleasure that are fleeting.

Times of indulgence that calls to my heart

a fun pursuit that will spread its wings and quickly depart.

I turn to the one who knows what is best

asking to be delivered from the pleasure seeking test.

I thought my life was set on being humble

then I felt a dart aimed at my heart to cause me to stumble.

Lord, heal my heart of worldly desires

burn them out with Your refiner’s fire.

My path I have chosen to follow the God I love

where it leads I’m unsure but I trust the one above.

Lord Jesus your ways I willing choose

because nothing compares to walking with you.

“Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one”

Ephesians 6:16 (ESV)
