Old things have passed
All things are new
Fresh as the morning dew
As the day passes on
Trials come to test and reprove
Dig your roots deep
Drink your fill from the Water of Life
Be strong and of great courage
For by Christ you will not move
With this precious gift of Life
Comes the promise you will not stand alone
Provision made to clothe you well against all strife
Defend your Life!
A price too great was paid
Put on the full armor of God
And boldly venture where far too few will go
Seek out God's Truth
Let His Righteousness guard your tender heart
Walk in His Peace
Shield yourself with a Faith from above
Let His Salvation be the cover over your head
Know His Word by the counsel of His Spirit
With these in place greet each new day
And all that may befall it
You may journey to the peak of joy
Or through the valley of sorrow
But the giver of Life will be in stride beside you
Always until it be morrow
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
14 Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,
15 and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE;
16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
17 And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
