In the lies, remember who He is

Addicted to a lie
How it sways side to side
How it entices

Lost in fantasy
Left at only what it is
Left longing for more

Pleased eyes widen
Lost in a dream
Lost in a world of lies

Chemicals run free
Enslaving their captors
Enslaving everything they are

What is hope
Freedom for a time?
Chastity for a better future?

Is it working?
Blocks and freezes
Who are you fooling?

Don’t let Satan keep you down
When you fall, rise
Don’t let him pull the veil over your eyes

Remember His love for you
It hasn’t changed
Remember His mercy
It hasn’t waned
Remember His grace
In all of its fame

What you’re feeling
Is it contrary to God?
They’re lies, fight with truth
Feeling like you lack worth
How wrong is this in the eyes of Who created it!
In Him we live and have our being
He is more powerful than the lies
Those terrible lies we’ve been believing

In the lies, rest in knowing who He is
A marvelous Savior who has been where we are
Tempted and tried coming away victorious
Inviting away from filth to something glorious

When thoughts come into your head
Do you choose to meditate and gratify
Or do you use the power you’ve been given
Through Christ we can conquer tempting sin

Remember His love for you
It hasn’t changed
Remember His mercy
It hasn’t waned
Remember His grace
In all of its fame

Don’t let Satan keep you down
When you fall, rise
Don’t let him pull the veil over your eyes

  1. This one I really like. It speaks truth in a “naked” way; unabridged, unmasked yet encouraging and hopeful. No matter how dark the days may seem, Christ is always there patiently helping us getting back on our feet time and time again. Amen!
