The Devil Is Defeated

Heavy burdens beyond control

That’s the devil trying to steal

Kill and destroy, attack with zeal

Leaving a giant gaping hole

Wreaking havoc deep in your soul

Tiny pieces left to rebuild

To find a way you must be willed

Just spread your wings, take flight and soar

Light of your life shines bright once more

No dreams deferred or unfulfilled

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
‭‭— John‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

This Too Shall Pass

“This Too Shall Pass”

sleeping ‘til morning

fear rests on my soft pillow

for this too shall pass

Have No Fear

storms of life reveal

emotional dimensions,

face shows sadness ‘til

you begin to remember

His eye is on the sparrow

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
— Matthew‬ ‭6:26-27‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Joy vs. Happiness

I’d rather be joyful than happy.
