Sitting in my cell on a cold lonely night.
Here is where I realized the inward fight.
I've finally realized what this life is for.
Because God has made me a soldier in his mighty war.
I put on all my armor and draw my sword.
The Excalibur is nothing compared to Gods word.
The weight of it all seems more than I can bare.
But I know that when I pray Jesus is there.
The Belt of Truth worn around my waist.
I wear it with honor and properly in place.
The Breastplate of Rightousness heavy as gold.
It protects me from the arrows of the cold.
The Shield of Faith I raise high above my head.
If it were not for this I would already be dead.
The Helmet of Salvation I received not long ago.
With the word of God I strike down Satan with every blow.
On my feet I wear the Gospel of Peace.
Jesus is all I need to say the least.
Standing on the front lines I shout out in glee.
"In Gods Army I will be all I can Be."
I stand tall and with honor upon Calvary Hill.
I'll charge forward fearless and without yield.
Life is the battlefield and the enemy is always around.
That is why I fight for god and am forever heaven bound!

Based on Ephesians 6:10 - 6:17 May God bless all with His love!!
