Muscles tightened, the face cringed,
The vein expanded in the arm,
Yielding to the chemicals harm.
A life wasted in foolish stupidity,
As the mind lost its lucidity,
A depth of pain and despair,
On hell’s downward spiral stair.
Afraid to live and afraid to die,
Life one long and painful sigh.
And then one eventful day,
Certain Words came into play.
“Surrender, I hold you dear.
Learn to live a different fear.”
Set free and healed at last,
Able to let the past be past.
An important Key to the Kingdom,
The fear of the Lord brings wisdom.
Bound by strong emotional chains,
Just left replaying old refrains,
Songs you have learnt by heart,
Are nothing but a poisoned dart.
Rejection, despair, fear and guilt,
Are a prison that you have built,
That conquer and vanquish hope,
Removing the ability for you to cope.
Condemnation and far, far worse,
Learning the role verse by verse.
But once again, Christ saves the day,
A demolition team is on the way,
To pull down hated prison walls,
Watch it crumble as it falls.
He came knowing what you need,
To be set free, made free indeed.
A very truthful Key to the Kingdom,
Following Christ leads to freedom.
Many demons control this world,
Satan’s flag has been unfurled.
Alcohol, drugs, tobacco and more,
Can make life a hard uphill chore.
Trapped, we can become their slave,
As they wear us down, wave by wave.
Pornography, greed, anger and lust,
Can leave us writhing in the dust.
Vassals to their relentless power,
Imprisoned in their ivory tower,
Feeling their strength, we yield,
Instead of using our Holy shield.
He has already the battle won,
Defeating every demon’s son.
And He dwells within your heart,
It’s time for the battle to start.
A very powerful Key to the Kingdom,
Walk with Christ and walk in dominion.
