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)
