Mine Field

We recently ran across this song by Petra. It ties in quite well with the current series we’re highlighting, Landmines by Steve Farrar.

It is the song Mine Field.

Lyrics

Mine Field – by Petra
Words and music by Bob Hartman

Based on Proverbs 3:6, 1 Peter 5:8, Matthew 16:24
Smell the burning powder?
There’s danger in the air
A voice from deep inside is telling you, ‘you must beware’
Then enemy is watching
Every step you take
To find his opportunity in every choice you make
And it’s no game
When someone lives without His grace
And who’s to blame
When it blows up in their face
It’s a mine field – you’d better follow Him through
God knows the way – you’d better stick like glue
It’s a mine field – better stay on His heels
’cause the enemy kills and the enemy steals
So keep your head down and keep you eyes peeled
’cause life is…
Life is a mine field
Think the grass is greener?
You’d better look around
Everywhere you look another casualty is found
The enemy is waiting
For you to start to run
Waiting like an itchy finger on a loaded gun
Some may feel
They can wander out too far
They may heal
But they may always wear the scar
Better leave the navigation to the One who knows the Way
He will bring illumination
He will light your path each day
It’s a mine field – better watch where you tread
Step off the path and you could end up dead
It’s a mine field – better stay on His heels
’cause the enemy kills and the enemy steals
So keep your head down and keep your eyes peeled
’cause life is…
Life is a mine field
