Equipped with the Tools

The world has a lot 
Of negatives that bite
With a deadly venom
That leads to our plight.

To set us up
And take control
So we are caught up
In things bad for the soul.

But God’s Holy Word
Equips us with the tools
Needed to catch the snakes
Who think we are fools.

To be set free 
When the world tries to trap
And be equipped with wisdom
To handle the crap.

By following the Way
In which souls are nourished
And a future
We all can cherish.

    “By following the Way
    In which souls are nourished
    And a future
    We all can cherish.”
