Ephesians 6:16

Above all taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked,

And if sorrows,
Come our way.
Should we be surprised?
Should we be discouraged, defeated, and deflated
As children of the King of Kings?
Or can we like Paul in his prison cell
Joyously,boldly and victoriously sing?

Should we as children of the most High God
Be surprised by fiery trials
When this world is not our home,
When our Heavenly Father’s earthly journey
Was full of sorrow, grief,and suffering?

Father fill us with thy Holy fire
So that the fiery furnace of affliction,
The lions den,
The storm upon the turbulent seas,
Makes the trembling saint
To so pursue the heart of God,
To so abide in the love of Christ,
To so reside under the shelter of his wings
That every fiery dart hurled against us
Will fall away without a wounding sting.

For as your child may we choose only to pursue and abide in
The un-defeatable, unconditional love of Christ
May every single fiery dart of the enemy make us
Victoriously,joyously, and boldly sing
Praises to our King of Kings!
