The Ongoing Battle
For the child of God, there was a day,
When we started walking, the Christian Way.
By the Spirit of God, we were boring again,
Then we were justified, and made right within.
Once in Christ, our new walk begins,
Then trials will come, Tempting us to sin,
As temptation come, and into sin we fall,
Christ will cleanse us, if unto Him we call.
The Christian life, has hills and valleys,
With uncertain days, and dark alleys,
In our daily walk, it's an ongoing battle,
To live by faith, it's a constant struggle.
When storm clouds lurk, and when skies are gray.
God will strengthen you, if unto Him you pray,
As you trust in God, your faith will grow,
Then throughout your walk, His blessing will flow.
When troubles arise, and trials lurk,
God is doing, His sanctifying work,
So keep your chin up, when days turn dim,
For the ongoing battle, belongs to Him.
