the armor of god

I am strong, so strong when I put on the armor of God, the armor of God. I can fight the fight when I put on the armor of God, the armor of God. When the fiery darts from Satan are headed my way, I’ll follow Jesus, I’ll draw my sword and bravely say: I’ve got the belt of truth buckled around, around my waist. And the breastplate of His righteousness guards my heart when it’s in place.

The Armor of god

I hold my shield of faith and Satan’s darts all ricochet. With my helmet on my head, I know I’m safe in the armor of God, in the armor of God. I am strong, so strong when I put on the armor of God, the armor of God. I can fight the fight when I put on the armor of God, the armor of God. When the fiery darts from Satan are headed my way, I’ll follow Jesus, I’ll draw my sword and bravely say:

Now my feet are fitted with the gospel, the gospel of peace. I’ll go where-ever hope is needed, in Jesus’ name, I’ll set men free. Then I’ll draw my mighty sword, the Word’s the weapon for this war. Jesus Christ is lifted up, let’s crown Him Lord, in the armor of God, in the armor of God.

our head coach

If the Lord is our head coach, we’ll run our lives from His approach. We’ll walk the walk and talk the talk, we’ll ask and seek and knock. It takes heart felt obedience. Our fruit is the evidence. We’ve heard the sermon on the mound, we’ll play this game on solid ground. So if the Lord is our head coach, we will learn the rules our head coach wrote.

I will learn God’s Word, I’ll know right from wrong. I will learn God’s Word, that’s how I am strong. When it’s my turn at the plate, I’ll speak God’s Word and firmly state: “We’re more than conquerors through Christ, our Lord, Christ, our Lord! We’re more than conquerors through Christ, our Lord.”

playing right field

Saturday, summer, when I was a kid, we’d run to the school yard and here’s what we did: we’d pick out the captains, then we’d choose up the teams. It was always a measure of my self esteem, ‘cause the fastest, the strongest played shortstop and first. The last ones they picked were the worst. Well I never needed to ask, it was sealed. I just took up my place in right field.

Playing right field
playing right field1

Play – ing– right field, it’s easy, ya’ know. You can be awkward, you can be slow, that’s why I’m here in right field just watchin’ the dandelions grow.

Playin’ right field can be lonely and dull. Little leagues never have lefties at all. I dream of the day they hit one my way. They never did, but still I would pray that I’d make a fantastic catch on the run and not lose the ball in the sun.

And then I’d awake from this long reverie and pray that the ball would never come out to me. Here in right field, it’s easy, ya’ know. You can be awkward you can be slow, that’s why I’m here in right field just watchin’ the dandelions grow.

Off in the distance, the game’s dragging on. There’s strikes on the batter, some runners are on. I don’t know the inning, I’ve forgotten

The score, the whole team is yelling and I don’t know what for. Then suddenly ev’ryone’slookin’ at me, my mind has been wandering, “What could it be?” They point to the sky, and I look up above, and a baseball falls into my glove. Here in right field, it’s important, ya’ know. You gotta know how to catch, you gotta know how to throw, that’s why I’m here in right field just watchin’ the dandelions grow.

Playing right field
it takes a team

It takes a team, it takes a team, when ev’ry player does their job, you’ve got a team. Yes, we all have diff’rent gifts but one Spirit leads us all. Our strength is in our unity, “To live for Christ,” our call! It takes a team, it takes a team to play baseball. Hand in hand, heart to heart, ev’ry one must play their part. Side by side, watch us grow, ev’ry step will lead us closer home.

It takes a church, it takes a church, ev’ry member serves the Lord and that’s the church. Yes, we all have diff’rent gifts, but one Spirit leads us all. Our strength is in our unity, “To life for Christ,” our call! It takes a church, it takes a church to reach the world. Hand in hand, heart to heart, ev’ry one must play their part. Side by side, watch us grow, ev’ry step will lead us.

casey s back at bat

The outlook was lookin’ brighter for the Mudville nine that day. That was ‘til mighty Casey let his pride get in the way. The score stood four to two with one inning to occur, with Jimmy safe at second and Flynn a huggin’ third. Huggin’ “thirrrrd.” Then five thousand fans rose to their feet and they began to shout. The Mudville Nine have got a chance, with Casey, there’s no doubt.

Casey’s Back at bat
casey s back at bat1

There was ease in Casey’s manner as he stepped into his place. There was pride in Casey’s stature and a smile on Casey’s face. Oh, how we love a ball game! Oh, how we love to cheer. It’s Casey’s turn and he’s at the plate. We’re so excited now, isn’t life great! That’s exactly when old Casey fell into the sin of pride. He let strike one and two go by and took it all in stride.

Then came the ball he thought would make the children laugh and shout. But there was no joy in Mudville-----mighty Casey has struck out! Take me home from this ball game! Get me out of this crowd. Casey blew it, he better pack. There’s no way he will every come back! Well guess who’s suited up this year scoring points for the Eagles’ team. He’s like a new man at this game. Will wonders ever cease?

Casey’s Back at bat

Casey met the Lord one day when he called to Jesus Christ. He bent his knee and said a prayer and received eternal life. Eternal life. And oh, how sweet forgiveness was when he confessed his pride. And oh, the mercy shown to him and the joy he has inside. He often speaks of his Mudville days, but now he wears a smile. If it caused me to turn to Jesus, it’s really all been worthwhile.

We’re so proud of our Casey. We’re so glad that He’s changed. We’re the Soaring Eagles up at the plate at the old ball game! Charge!

All I ever have to know, to fight the good fight, all I ever need to know I’ll look to You. Your ways are higher, so much higher, Lord, than I can see. But you promised if I ask You will teach me. Lord, I know you guide Your children through their trials. Lord, I know You’re on my side when You’re proclaimed. Your ways are higher, so much higher, Lord, than I can see.

But when I’m with You, I know my spirit’s free.
