The Mat is where it's at!
Unfolding of the mat gives light to purpose and prize
as unfolding of God's Word gives light, making the simple wise.
The mat is protection to the athlete from the fall.
It softens the blow when you give it your all.
It's boundaries are there to guide and to direct
as well as determine the fullness of effect
which is the grace of God for the elect.
On it flow tears of joy and celebration
as well as suffering and false accusation.
Limiting experience to it's presence by rules of law
it's the Spirit of such that removes the flaw.
To win and not lose seems the task,
The crown of victory is the mask.
Guidance by the eye of the Father
through which to trust and obey.
It's not to win or lose
but Grace to be able to play.
To be "Pro Wrestling",
you're "For the Struggle"
now limiting other choices
that were hard to juggle.
Whether and how you endure
with a spiritual and/or physical limp
It's God's strength that makes the weaknesses and temptations exempt. 11/27/2003
