These Feet of Clay
by Deborah Ann Belka

God took these feet of clay,
and put them to the test
I thought it would be easy
and promised to do my best.

I kept my walk straight,
stayed to the righteous path
for I knew I never wanted
to meet up with His wrath.

But, there were obstacles,
many got in to my way
and Satan used my mind
to tempt me every day.

I thought I could withstand,
what Satan put in front of me
I was confident and I was sure
his deceptions I would see.

His lying lips spoke evil,
but, it's not what my ears heard
and I started listening to him
instead of turning to the Word.

My eyes became sightless,
to the truths I once knew
and instead of looking away
Satan's lies I began to pursue.

Satan threw at me my pride,
made it a stumbling block
it caused me to stop believing
that Jesus was my Rock.

For years, my faith was dead,
I had fallen in to the pit of sin
on the day Satan's deceptions
became embedded deep within.

But, God took these feet of clay,
after putting them to the test
and He brought me back to Him
for He always does what's best.


1 Corinthians 10:12
King James Version

"Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth
take heed lest he fall."
