James 4:7-10 The Message (MSG)
So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he'll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it's the only way you'll get on your feet.

The Word of God
The Armor of God


11. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.

12. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

13. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes,
you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

14. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,

15. and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

17. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.
With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

Ephesians 6:10-18 (New International Version)

Below is a picture graciously provided by Rose Publishing. They have many good Christian books and materials available. It is a graphic concept of Ephesians 6:10-18.
Study it earnestly. This passage of scripture this will save you from pain and sorry
on your Journey, pilgrim.

Another source of great pleasure and wisdom about our journey as a christian is Pilgrim's Progress.
A book written by a great saint of God called John Bunyan back in the 1600's.

The Pilgrims Progess

You will find may truths in his words even though it is written in allegory form in the Kings English (Old English). There is also a new version transcribed into modern English but keeping the same meter and stride of the original. I have read both and they are both very good.

If you would like to read about the authors real life journey you may find it very interesting to know that modern day persecution is still very real. Below is a artists rendition of the road our friend pilgrim took on the way to The Celestial City.

Here is a online link to the audio and readable formats of the book.
Pilgrims Progress Audio E-book and in PDF and html readable formats at this link.

My humblest Prayer for you my friend is "Blessings from our Savior, Jesus Christ". May the very best result ,come from a road well traveled. When you reach Heaven, God will smile, hug you and say "My child, job well done and I Am so glad your finally Home."
Jesus has given us the ability to be over-comers if we Believe in Him, Trust in Him and Worship Him in
Spirit and in Truth. When we study and obey His Word the Holy Spirit will speak to us, lead and guide us.

The song Playing is by COLLECTIVE SOUL
This band is not really classed as a Christian band but i find that there lyrics do address the human condition weather your saved or not.

Read what is posted on Wikipedia about them and there song Shine and if you would like to read the whole article heres the Shine Link.

Due to the song's lyrical themes, particularly the mention of "heaven," Collective Soul was often early on regarded as a Christian band. Front-man Ed Roland elaborated, "I remember around the time ["Shine" came out] getting into an argument with a writer who said, 'You're a Christian band.' I said, 'No, we're not.'

Well, you have the word heaven in your song.' And I said, 'Well, so does Led Zeppelin. I don't remember anyone saying they were a Christian band.'" He went on to stress that such classification would unite the bandmates' beliefs and that a particular doctrine can not speak for all its members. Roland did note, however, his religious background and the fact that his father is a Southern Baptist minister but that this does not justify a Christian label.

Collective Soul rhythm guitarist and Ed Roland's brother, Dean has called the song's chorus "basically a prayer" and noted that the uplifting single was released during an odd time amidst heavy grunge. He noted that, despite the song's unique feel, this circumstance wrongfully pigeonholed the band as being grunge.

"Shine" features guitar with a slight distortion and mellow atmosphere throughout the verses. Its chorus pounds with staccato riffs before brightening up with the lyrics "Heaven let your light shine down." Later, the song's bridge increases tempo for a hard rock guitar solo before returning to its previous state of calmness.

The World I Know

Has our conscience shown? Has the sweet breeze blown?
Has all the kindness gone? Hope still lingers on.
I drink myself of new found pity, Sitting alone in new york city, And I dont know why.

Are we listening to hymns of offering?
Have we eyes to see that love is gathering?
All the words that Ive been reading
Have now started the act of bleeding into one.

So I walk up on high, And I step to the edge, To see my world below.
And I laugh at myself, As the years roll down.
cause its the world I know. Its the world I know.
