Satan Likes to Put Me Down, But Jes

Satan Likes To Put Me Down, But Jesus Is Here!


I heard the devil whisper into my ear…

“You’re no good!”  “Come over here!”


In front of me, where discouragements of all kinds...

It was almost overwhelming for my mind!


He promised something “better,” than what I already had!

He said that if I did what he wanted…  I’d be happy and glad!


I asked how Jesus to help the way I was livin.’

The life I’ve lived and HIS power of forgivin.’!


Would I trade all of this, for a life of stress and sin?

Perhaps having a form of happiness,

 but no freedom within?


Was I going to trade what God gave,

 for a pleasure of the moment?

Was I about to make a mockery of Christ’s atonement?


I ran, and bowed my head and cried…

For a brief moment, I felt rejected and despised!


 I felt the Holy Spirit’s presence all around me!

And then, it was like the love of Jesus had filled me!


This time, I knew that what I had, was all I needed!

With Christ in my life, I no longer have to be defeated!


Satan is a liar!  He has one purpose and goal!

He wants nothing more, than to destroy my soul!


Take notice Satan!  This is what I proclaim!

Everything I ever need!  I have in Jesus’ name!


The blessings from Jesus, have supplied my every need!

It’s an everlasting and abundant life, that I received!


Thank you Jesus, for giving what I need and more!

You’re so wonderful! 

and are worth living for!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
