Avoiding The Garden Of Temptation 

In 100 words or less how do you think the story will go if Adam and Eve were victorious in their first temptation ? I’ll explain more in another post 😀
I’ll go first. This is how mine would look:
With smells and sights unknown to us, Adam and Eve strolled through the bountiful vibrant garden; their hands interlocked with each other’s. Their pulses were strong as their lungs pumped air freely throughout their bodies.
Waiting for them to pass by, the serpent chose the highest place in the Tree of Knowledge, for he despised crawling on his belly! This cold creature watched Adam and Eve enjoy luscious fruits and brightly coloured vegetables. He thought about how the other animals had knocked dirt in his face. So when eve was an earshot away he asked her, “has God indeed said, “you shall not eat of every tree in the garden?”
Smiling as she stood in the cool of the day, she replied, “you know, it’s best you ask God Himself, since he did make the rules.” Eve then walked away.

Hunting For The Mark

Hunting For The Mark
Chaos leaps around you, 

waiting to trap your very soul –

Enticing you to miss the mark-

To forget what you know.
But stand firm, keep in line 

with God’s valuable Word.

Don’t forget your Anchor point,

Or everything is a blur!
Hold your bow with poise;

Three fingers under notch –

Holy spirit, God, and Jesus have your back,

So the outside noise you’ll block.
Be sure to maintain consistency;

Stretch the bow frame till it hurts!

All this may seem impossible, 

yet obedience is great worth!
Quickly Act for time is running out!

The end is quite near!

Trust your Coach to guide you;

At your score He will cheer!
For you will kill temptation;

The desire to want to sin;

Missing the mark is painful,

So keep your eyes on Him!
