Who's By Your Side?

Updated: Apr 17



Evil is out there—on deception it feeds

It whispers and beckons Through the most "innocent" things It whispers 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 slide

Oft times, while proclaiming

He has God on his side


Devastation runs rampant, in all forms it's spread. By our treatment of others and By the words we have said. Maybe power is the focus In our minds breeding greed Some get sucked into addiction; And 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 year's 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 for it. His name is Lucifer. Satan. The devil. Be careful. He is cunning and tries his best to twist what is wrong to look right. Don't kiss that frog! Love, C
