Are you sober? Are you vigilant, keeping an eye on your six?
Your adversary has plans to put your soul in a tangled fix.
Walking about, seeking whom he may devour for his next snack.
Can you feel the hot blows of the lion as he breathes down your back?
That big ole nasty cat likes to play many games
And he knows each and every one of you by your names.Upon whom can you cast all your cares?
Disapproval, anger, sin, financial affairs…
Humble yourselves and let the Lord be your remedy
For not one of us is exempt from this prowling enemy.
Each time you let God fight and be the strength to see you through…
After ye have suffered a while, the God of all grace will make you
perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

For my dear sister, Kerry who asked me to write about this scripture.
