I have so many temptations all around me.
I must be careful, lest they ensnare me!
I asked the Lord, “why does the enemy tempt me?”
He answered; “then I’ll know how much you love me!”
I thought for a moment, and was quite perplexed.
I wasn’t sure exactly what to say next!
I know the Lord has promised a way of escape.
Narrow is his way and straight is the gate!
I pray that his spirit will guide what I do and see!
If not, all of this sin will eventually control me!
I need to run into his loving and opened arms!
Only he can keep me safe from all harm!
I know that I could never do this alone!
I need God’s protection over my life and home!
There’s no hiding secrets, with his presence around!
Whatever I may try to hide, it shall be found!
I need YOU now!. I need you so very much!
How I long for your strengthening touch!
Thank you my Lord, for helping me along!
Though I am weak... You remain strong!
Whatever roadblock or temptation I may face…
You’ll help me to overcome by your loving grace!
You’re all I’ll ever need! And bless me each day!
I appreciate you so much!
More than words can say!
