From 1 Samuel 18:14-16: “David had success in all his undertakings, for the Lord was with him. When Saul saw that he had great success, he stood in awe of him. But all Israel and Judah loved David, for it was he who marched out and came in leading them.”
Marching upright, heaven’s sacred drum
Accepting His will, faithfully come
Shattering evil’s empty façade
Navigating from darkness, with God
Trusting His hands, molding every heart
Following Spirit, renewing start
Searching heavens, finding lasting peace
Living in righteousness, never cease
Leaving sinful ways, Jesus leading
Steering life’s mission, now proceeding
Heeding His call, taking faith’s high road
Promising light, Lord’s mercy bestowed
Looking past Bethlehem, blood-stained cross
Seeing empty tomb, enemy’s loss
Building up redemption’s faithful walls
Touching another soul, God’s grace calls
Seeking Christian soldiers, through His Word
Lasting victory, no longer blurred
Stepping on ashes, filled with untruth
Marching with Christ, believing His truth
From 2 Timothy 2:2-3: “What you have heard from me through many witnesses entrust to faithful people who will be able to teach others as well. Share in suffering like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.”
An uplifting poem ! May we all march as soldiers for the Lord!
