WALLS WE BUILD

BY:  SUNNY ORLY COFFMAN

JUNE 25, 1995

MAN HAS BUILT WALLS FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.

MANY ARE BUILT TO KEEP CITIES SAFE.

AND MANY MORE ARE CONSTRUCTED BETWEEN OUR EARS.

WE ALL KNOW ABOUT THE GREAT CHINA WALL

AND THE WALL IN BERLIN HAD A GREAT REPUTATION.

BUT IT’S TIME THE WALLS IN OUR MIND BEGIN TO FALL.

WE’VE CREATED WALLS OF FEAR AND DIVISION…

WALLS THAT SEPARATE THE GENERATIONS AND THE RACES.

NOW IT’S TIME TO TEAR THEM DOWN AND ACCEPT GOD’S PROVISION.

WALLS OF NATIONAL PRIDE HAVE SEPARATED NATIONS.

COLOR WALLS HAVE PARTED MANY BY HIGH BARRIERS.

IT’S TIME TO TEAR THEM DOWN, LOVE ONE ANOTHER AND HAVE A VACATION.

BALLOONS AND BUTTERFLIES CAN EASILY GO OVER WALLS.

WE NEED TO BE THAT FREE IN OUR MINDS AND MOVE WITH EASE.

IT WILL LIBERATE OUR HEARTS AND MINDS AND SAVE US LOTS OF FALLS.

DOUBT AND UNBELIEF ARE WALLS THAT SEPARATE US FROM GOD.

FAITH AND HOPE ARE BULLDOZERS TO DESTROY THOSE WALLS.

PEACE AND JOY ARE THE REWARDS FOR A LIFE CLOSE TO GOD.

IT’S THE SEASON TO PLUCK UP ALL OUR WALLS OF ANGER AND STRIFE.

BETTER TO LAY DOWN ALL BITTERNESS HATRED AND VENGEANCE.

FREEDOM FROM ALL THESE THINGS WILL PRODUCE A HAPPY LIFE.
