Who's By Your Side?
Evil is out there and on deception it feeds.
It whispers and beckons
Through the most innocent things.
It seduces enticingly
Telling man he NEEDS more!
One step...then another...
Before you know it, there's war.
Yes, man, oh so quickly,
Into darkness will glide.
Oft times, while proclaiming
He has God at his side.
Devastation runs rampant, in all forms it's spread. By our treatment of others and By the words we have said. Or it’s pretty, oh so sparkly! In our minds breeding greed With some form of addiction; We MUST fill the need! Yes, man, oh so quickly, Into darkness will glide Not knowing his yearning is For God at his side. For if God is in Heaven, the devil’s real too. And he’ll stop at nothing. EVERY life, he’ll pursue. His demons and minions Are running amok Causing hopelessness, poverty, Wars and distrust. Like a lion, he lays waiting To devour young minds To control them forever Far from God’s loving side. Always endeavor to fight the good fight. No matter the consequence, We must stand by what’s right! Turn to God’s Word for guidance. Seek Him out. That’s right! Pray! And, tell others about Jesus, So, they, too, might be saved. Yes, we’re human, we’ll falter, But if by His Word, we’ll abide We will grow through this lifetime Keeping God at our side. ****************************************** A few years ago, our son posted the lyric to a Bob Dylan song called With God On Our Side. They stuck with me, but not in a good way.
Something didn't ring true. This poem would be my response to Mr. Dylan. Horrible things happen in this world not because of God, but in spite of him. Who would dare to spite God? There is one who exists that thrives on it. His name is Lucifer. Satan. The devil.
Be careful. He is cunning and tries his best to take what is wrong and make it seem right. Don't kiss that frog! Love, C
