“Your work is trash.”

“Your light is dim.”

“Your words are rash.”

“You cause is grim.”

“Your friends you drained.”

“Your kids are pale.”

“Your spouse is faint.”

“Your heart is frail.”

Who speaks these words

Which closely stick

To heart and mind

And make me sick?


Did God speak them?

No! They’re not love.

They come from Hell,

Not from above.


God says I’m His.

I bear His name.

Christ took my sins.

Bore all my shame.


He calls me blessed,

Redeemed, adored,

Beautifully dressed,

Calls me restored.


2 Corinthians 5;17


    • Yes, we must stand against those lies. We fight with the weapon of the Word … resist the enemy and his accusations… and believing what God has said about us! Thanks, Jen πŸ™‚


    • You are so right! I get on my knees and speak Scriptures and they leave. Why am I so slow in learning 😦 So grateful people like you remind us each day with the Living Word and the Truth, our sure weapon!!! Blessings to you Deborah!


      • I’m doing okay πŸ™‚ God chose to let me see and then share a vision at church yesterday and so anytime I speak out the enemy tells me some nasty stuff to try to get me to be quiet but I’m learning that I can tell him to shutup instead πŸ™‚ It just gets tiring sometimes though 😦


    • Dear Deb, I always love to find your loving comments and your encouragement means much (I know not only to me) … I hope you are finding encouragement today in knowing how much you are loved by Him and seen in all what is going on in your life. He is holding you in the palm of His hand and leading your willing heart … one step at a time, dear one… blessings to you!


  1. Heidi, I love poems with happy endings. The accuser of the brethren seems to toss around the same old lies to us all. I like the victorious ending and the verse you chose.

    Blessings ~ Wendy
