Time

Woke up this morning with this saying which developed into a poem.
Thought I would share it. Let me have your thoughts.

As the saying goes,
Time waits for no Man.”
Sit back and do nothing
and your spiritual poverty
Will come upon you
as an armed man

This armed man will bind you
and hold you captive
Thrusting his thoughts and ideologies
forcibly upon you

Each time you try to resist
To rise in your natural strength
His shackles get heavier and heavier
Your bones weaker and weaker
And your world darker and darker

What is the answer?
“How can I ever be free?”
You ask

FEED ON THE WORD OF GOD!!

It is the only sure way to overcome
the armed man
To unbind his shackles
Destroy his chains
Cast down his imaginations
resident in your mind

Jesus paid it all
All to Him I owe
Sin HAD held me captive,
restrained
His blood HAS made me free,
complete.
