Do you really believe I live
and am a living part of you?
Why then do you take the time
to be so far away?
Do not allow distractions
to keep you away from Me.
Each day is precious in My sight.
Each moment spent with Me
is priceless for eternity.
The evil one's darts
have penetrated far beyond
the weakened shield that you presented.
Your Sword, you lifted
not soon enough with strength
to cast off that adversary.
Still, I have all power
to do all things.
Your belief is all I need
to work in you.
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth,
having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and
having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able
to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God;
