Aquiring Armor

Though often in darkness,

the day is drawing near;

an end to all trials,

removal of fear.

Let us set aside deeds,

done in shadows of night;

turn hearts to the Father,

put on armor of light.

This great armor appears,

as we love each other;

making sure needs are met,

of sisters and brothers.

For when we choose to love,

it’s fulfilling the law;

preferring each other,

as did He, without flaw.

Gratify not ourselves,

desiring sinful things;

rather clothe self in Christ,

where our true freedom rings.

(Responding to Romans 13:8-14)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that regardless of the darkness and devastation around us, we have eternal hope in You.  Thank You that there will be a day when there is no more darkness nor pain, no more suffering nor stains.  Forgive us for losing sight of You, our Hope and Help in all things, and at all times.  Teach us to walk triumphantly in trust, bearing Your armor of light, so that we may love and care for others well.  May they see You in us, as we prefer each other and love one another well.  May our lives draw them unto You.  Amen.
