Satan--You're a Liar!

Satan--You're A Liar!

Satan-you tried to destroy
me and I won't forget it!
You're a liar & deceiver...and so pathetic!

I was "your slave," and bowed
to your every rule.
I can see now that I was
listening to a fool.

You had me in your trap...
and I was going to lose.
Until that day when someone
told me the good news!

I heard of a savior's love and it
became more revealing.
I soon had a new hope and
for once--a good feeling!

Knowing that in my discouragement
and despair.
There was a God who loves me.
A God who cares!

I asked, "Jesus--would you take
someone like me?"
"I need your help and I
need to be set free."

As soon as I gave him my
heart-felt invitation,
He brought true love and
true satisfaction.

He loves me so much--I have
no reason to complain.
When I stumble and fall...
I simply call on his name!

What Satan has taken, Jesus has
given so much more!
He truly is what life is 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!
