Not For Sale
Blessed are those who endure,
When they are being tested;
Since the Lord likes to make sure,
The right one is invested.
They will get the crown of life,
For they show that they love Him;
And it will shield them from strife,
To have joy not feeling grim.
When someone has been tempted,
Never point fingers at God;
And He should be exempted,
Showing love honor and laud.
Only evil can tempt you,
And expect it as Satan;
No one else could construe,
With crooked roads to straighten.
Satan knows your desires,
As he will set up a lure;
Then wait to light your fires,
Trapping and locking the door.
Desire gives birth to sin,
And the birth will cause your death,
As it corrupts you within,
A stench will be from your breath.
Do not ever let him fool,
That he has a special gift;
He just wants to break a rule,
Put you out to sea to drift.
So the Father made the stars,
And the Father does not change;
But He will heal all your scars,
For love showing in exchange.
