Tempting Temptations

Always nagging, persistent and strong,
The voice of the Enemy calls.
To heed is to stray from where we belong,
Imprisoned by sinful walls.

Our weakness he knows, count on that,
Our will and resolve are tested.
But God gave us power to stand in combat,
Our strength will determine whoís bested.

The Evil Oneís power is no small thing,
All men he could squash like a bug.
Like puppets with string we dance and sing,
His doctrines take hold like a drug.

But with God in our hearts we have a choice,
To sin or to follow the Lordís example.
He leads us to truth with his gentle voice,
Underfoot, the Serpent is trampled.

So when temptations come letís lift up our eyes,
And draw on the strength of our Saviour.
Use his sword to cut evils voice down to size,
Turn our backs to sinful behaviour.

AUTHORS NOTE:
We are all tempted and we all fail at times. Anyone who says they donít sin has just surrendered to the temptation to lie. Temptation is everywhere. Itís on TV, Radio, Books, Computers, the list is endless. No matter how hard we try we cant avoid it in one form or another. All we can do, is do our best to recognise temptations for what they are and follow one of the most important instructions Jesus gave us; Overcome.
