The Serpent And The Sparrow

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.” -August Wilson

There is something in the way we move, there is something that keeps us moving.
Shadows are cast where we block the light, shadows are the reason the doers are no longer doing.
Darkness makes it’s way through towns of amber, darkness floods our streets.
Nightmares are finding their way into daylight, nightmares have escaped the sheets.
Some people remain sleeping, some people will not wake.
God looks on in disappointment, God wonders just what it will take.
Saints are marching boldly, the saints go marching in.
The angels also take their stance, the angels play to win.

“A cure for War? Furiously spending the same daily amount of money toward making friends. Being an indispensable source of food, shelter, peace, and cultural support dedicatedly spending 9 billion dollars a month on helping people would be a formidable enemy of evil.” -Vanna Bonta

A sparrow sits unaware of the danger, a sparrow is in the way.
The serpent slides up right behind behind it, the serpent eyes it’s prey.
So tragic the scenario, so tragic and yet so true.
The serpent slides up right behind us, the sparrow is me and you.
Up on our fences we are so content, on our fences everything is fine.
The war wages violently from below all the while, the war has been happening the entire time.
It seems so hopeless this battle, it seems it will never end.
The truth clears the way of the wreckage, the truth is our only friend.

Our Savior is our armor, our Savior is our shield.
The demons stand no chance in His presence, by the sound of His name they must yield.

It takes wisdom to learn the narrow way, it takes wisdom to be led in.
The world had fooled so many by books and paper, the world we are dying in.

It’s a terrible road and I’m walking with spiders, it’s a terrible road and I’m walking in.
It takes an ocean not to break, it takes an ocean to doust the fire we burn in.
So arrogant are the ones who look on from a far, so arrogant is man.
Meanwhile God is patiently hoping we will trust in Him and His plan.

The Word of God fills the battlefield, the Word of God shakes the sleeping ones wide awake.
Salvation is at hand, salvation is near for those who partake.
Rise up against the enemy, rise up when God calls your name.
For the victory will be His regardless, with or without you He will win.
Choose your battles wisely, choose your battles well.
As for me I choose team Jesus, as for me I choose humility over hell.

Only fools say in their hearts,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their actions are evil;
not one of them does good!

God looks down from God looks down from
heaven on the entire human race; he looks to see if anyone is truly wise,
if anyone seeks God.

(Psalm 53:1 – 53:2 NLT)

I wonder….

“A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.” –St. Basil

I wonder what the world would be like if we acted more like He would?
If we actually collaborated on peace instead fighting each other in the name of good.
I wonder how many lives would be blessed if we ministered more like He would?
If instead of dictating love we actually showed it like we should.
I wonder how many tears would be prevented if we encouraged more like He would?
If a picket sign and a judging eye were replaced with affirmations and an “I bet you could!”

Such a place to escape, my own little wonderland.
A place where we should be living not visiting to try and understand.
God put us here to act and not to wonder.
He intended us for great things, not take each other under.
Grace is not a gift, it was earned, but not by you or me.
It was the work of Jesus who enables us to be free.
Do not think that by being a hypocrite or an advocate that you earn your way to the throne.
It is simply by being faithful and walking in love behind the one is the way alone.
For goodness sakes poor child get your mind out of the gutter.
Get the words of love out of mouth instead of the hate you mutter.
No condemnation or confederation can grant you what you strive for.
It’s asking ” Did I give? ” and if I did I will give a little more!
I wonder if we acted more like Jesus if more people would want to know Him?
Stop talking about how much you love our God and really start to show Him!

Luke 6:36-38 – Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. And do not judge and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned. Give and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, they will pour into your lap. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.
