#throwbackpoem: Buckle Up

to GOD be the GLORY

~ Buckle Up ~

By Deborah Ann

I’m putting on my helmet,
going to protect my head
I’m buckling up the straps
with Scriptures I’ve read.

I want to be protected,
from Satan’s mind game
the hope of my salvation
is his most likely aim.

Satan is really good,
at playing with my thoughts
but my helmet keeps me
from falling for his plots.

I want to be ready,
at every curve and bend
for I know he will chase me
right up to the very end.

Satan loves the pursuit,
he will never-ever quit
but my helmet will give me
the endurance and the grit.

I’m putting on my helmet,
lest I crash and burn
going to use the Scriptures
around each and every turn!

1 Thessalonians 5:8

“But let us, who are of the day,
be sober, putting on the
breastplate of faith and love;
and for an helmet,
the hope of salvation.”
