You Won’t Get Me

There is a war of the spirit
The way to win this battle
Is not with the flesh
But with our spirit
It’s deeper than the flesh
Every day we must suit up
And tell ourselves
Our past is our past
You won’t get me
Negativity, Anger, Hatred,
Gossip, Jealousy, Animosity,
Everything opposite
Of what God has for me
You won’t get me
The fruit of the spirit is love
Test a person’s spirit
To avoid a sneak attack
Everything that glitters
Isn’t gold
We know that unicorns
Do not exist
We shall know a tree by its fruits
It can’t be denied
Hurt people hurt others
Healed people heal others
That shows our spirit
How we begin our day
That shows our spirit
How we handle tough times
That shows our spirit
How we treat our enemies
Or estranged family members
That shows our spirit
How we are in private verse
Who we are in the public
That shows our spirit
The scripture says that
All scripture is for our correction
So how you are living that
Shows your spirit
The scripture says
That if you call yourself holy
Yet still hold hands with the world
Then you are a liar
How is your spirit
Do you pray for others
Even the ones that have hurt you
Or the ones that you are
Not talking to
That shows your spirit
Doubt, Ill spoken words, Hopes of devising my hurt,
Generational curses, Ungodly advice
You won’t get me
I am suited up
What I can’t handle God will
I will love
I will trust
I will forgive
I will pray
I will suit up
I am ready
