"Put on the full armour of God, that ye may be
able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but
against principalities, against powers, against
the rulers of the darkness of this world, against
spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore,
take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye
may be able to withstand in the evil day, and
having done all, to stand."

Ephesians 6:11-13

A MADE UP MIND

I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed.
The die has been cast.
The decision has been made.
I have stepped over the line.
I won't look back, let up, slow down or back away.

My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my
future is secure. I'm finished and done with
selfish living, sight walking, small planning,
"smooth knees," colorless dreams, tamed visions,
mundane talking, cheap giving and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position,
promotions, plaudits, pity or popularity. I don't
have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised,
regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on
His presence, walk with His patience, live by prayer
and labor with His power.

My face is set; my gait is sure; my goal is heaven;
my road is narrow; my way is rough, my companions
are few; my Guide is reliable; my mission is clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured
away, turned back, deluded or delayed.

I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate
in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the
table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity
or meander in the maze of mediocrity because I have
been sustained by Christ.

I won't give up, shut up, let up, until I have
stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, spoken
up for the cause of Christ.

I am a disciple of Jesus Christ.
I must go till all know, and work till He stops me.
And when He comes for His own, He will have no
problem recognizing me. My banner is clear.
I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed.
