Your claws are deep inside of me.
I feel them every time they scratch
when you try to collect a fee
or try to make me your day’s catch.

You play with things locked in my mind,
reminding me of wrongs I’ve done.
Then on my faith you try to dine –
my strength in God, you hope I’ve none.

But you’ve forgotten just one thing –
you don’t know who you’re messing with.
Into this fight, God’s sword I bring …
God’s love is stronger than your myths.

So, get behind me, evil one.
You need to just get off my back.
He’ll clip your horns when he is done.
God’s promises keep me on track.

You wait until I’m weak and feel
confused so you can move right in.
But God helps me, His love is real
and He helps me fight off your sin.

Believe me, Satan, you’ve no pow’r,
I call on God’s love as my shield.
He’s not afraid to make you cower.
With strength through Him, I’ll never yield.

    Nicely penned! I like this part, clip off his horns!

    But without the devil 😈 there would be sin and no good.

    Sad to say, he is tolerated.

    We choose whether to be bad or good. He tells lies and use money to control us. He will be cast into the pit for 1,000 Earth years. When God sets up heaven on Earth for a millinium.

    Watch out for the pretenders that only pretend to be good. They are wolves in lambs wool.

    Nice job!

    Hello Barb

    Another very nicely written and powerful piece with no errors that I can see.

    Indeed, he’ll try and take you if he’s allowed to or sees and opportunity. So many promising souls have been destroyed by letting him in. Keep the faith my friend.

    Well done.
