When in the boat and on the way
Do storm clouds strive to lure us away?
Or climbing trails as we then go
Enticing side paths beckon so?
Perhaps in strolling through the mall
Let’s grab the grand and ditch the small?
When at my place reclining at last
Has a chance to serve come… and passed?
Eyes travel to what’s not mine
Make excuses that it’s just fine?
To follow desire when the time’s all wrong
Will there be regrets before too long?
Ears listening to words of spite or strife
What does that do to encourage life?
Fling the door open to invite
Help from God to shine the Light
Temptation scatters as He brings the best
Strength to overcome and then to rest.
