A Moment’s Distraction

You are focused at the break of dawn,

Ready to achieve your set goals.

Are your goals founded on your will or God’s will?

Be sure they are founded on the Rock.

Build them on the solid rock so they can withstand,

Not on mountains of sinking sand.

The Rock is Jesus Christ, the chief cornerstone.

The Word of God pierces the marrow and the bone.

The enemy (Satan) will use distractions everyday,

To cause you to stumble along the way.

Be sure your goals and purpose are rooted and grounded in the Rock, for through knowing and speaking the Word of God are distractions blocked.

A moments distraction from God-given purposes

And goals can lead to years of oppression.

So avoid endless oppression today,

By keeping your focus on God everyday.
