Satan Tries to Trap Me!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Satan Tries to Trap Me!



Satan does his best and tries to “trap me!”

He does whatever he can to “enslave me!”


He tempts me with deception and lies…

And flashes “temptations” before my eyes!


Whatever he does and whatever his plans…

If I’m by myself…  I can never stand!


I need to daily seek the lord’s direction!

I need his word for much

 needed correction!


His word is a daily “light unto my path.”

Applying it to my life spares me from “God’s wrath.”


No matter the “pleasure” that I seem to be enjoying…

If it’s not of God... 

I’m simply “disobeying!”


Scripture says “to feel from temptation

and do it fast!”

I need to seek God’s love,

which will always last!


Satan tries to “duplicate” the things God has given….

He wants to destroy the way I’ve been livin’!


I take refuge in my lord.  And him alone!

And seek his protection around

 my heart and home!


He is and shall always be

 my lord and friend…

And is here to give me the victory

that I need within!

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!
