the resistance

temptation

“Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.”
~The Lord’s Prayer~

When I am tempted to leave the hand of God
and reach for what was never mine to hold
it is not the hand of God who leads me there
but the hand of God who holds me here.

When my traitor heart yearns long for wrong
and can’t forget what God strikes down
My Lord’s resolve to make me clean
Remakes me willing to walk away again.
