Before I found Christ, my soul was lost in sin.
The evil one controlled it, he had found a way in.
The desires of my flesh commanded my soul,
While the evil one turned it into an empty black hole.
The fury of his arrows can strike deep into my soul.
He waits for a weakness, an unguarded wall is his goal.
With the wiles of the devil I used to sin,
Now he brings up my past hoping to find a way in.
Sometimes his attacks can be sudden and swift,
Hoping to entice me with an evil little gift.
Then there are times when he’s patient and slow,
Looking for a chance to sow a seed that will grow.
Like the darkness that overcomes me when I close my eyes,
His evil is dark and full of many lies.
Using old forgotten memories to make me desire,
A life that had me headed for a destruction with fire.
With vivid visions and desires to make me re-act,
He makes me dizzy so I’ll stumble and fall back.
For the fight with the Devil I find myself in,
It’s the full armor of God that will enable me to win.
With my faith in the Holy One I will continue to fight on,
Knowing that someday all temptation will be gone.
