The Lord doesn't always speak in an audible voice, but often in nudges, moving the heart.

The Belt of Truth
The belt of Truth around the waist
can make us stop to think
about the things we stop to taste,
that bring us to the brink.

When we were young the belt was snug,
and easier to cinch.
The older self's a bigger hug
with no more skin to pinch.

Why does it seem a losing cause
to make the body fit?
Why does our running seem to pause
because we don't commit?

The spirit man he needs the same
endeavors to be strong.
Is flabbiness a daily blame?
"Those Were The Days," our song?

When we do hide His Word within,
it cinches life for good,
but when we're lazy toward our sin
awakenings are rude.

The belt of Truth can tell a tale
of fitness for His cause.
For we are fit when Truth avails.
We're not by earthly draws.

How can He be the Lord of All,
when all of life distracts?
"Please, make me fit for every call.
Let Your Meat aye attract.
