That Lion Is Toothless (poem by Angela)

That Lion Is Toothless

We need to stop talking about what the enemy is doing or trying to do

We need to talk about Jesus and what He did and what He is doing!

The enemy is a defeated foe

He is a toothless lion, one without fangs

Who can only roar in hopes to scare us into submission

And, sadly, it works far too often….

I remind you; again, the enemy is a defeated foe

Jesus broke the curse of sin and death

When He shed His blood and died to pay our sin debt

Rising from the grave on that famous third day

Jesus rose victorious with power and healing in His wings

And it is in His righteousness, power and might that He wishes for us to stand.

Jesus paid it all you see

In Jesus we have the victory

No longer enslaved or manipulated by the enemy

Do we have to be

Stop talking about that evil one

All of his plans and schemes are undone

Jesus conquered on that glorious day

And as we trust and rest in Christ alone

We can boldly approach the throne

And make our needs and requests known

So let’s shout about the victory that Jesus brings

And stop focusing on lesser things

Let’s stop talking about all the little losses

Jesus reigns and raises us up to walk on that foe

Along with Him on high, ever reaching new heights of His love

As He takes us from glory to glory

Let us hold tight to His unseen Hand

And always know that He is accomplishing His good plans

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
