Satan Tries to Get Me Down!

Satan Tries to Get Me Down!


Satan tries his best to get me down!

He wants me to “fall to the ground!”


He tries his best to tempt me and “trip me up.”

And then feeds me many lies to “fill me up!”


He doesn’t want me to give God my trust!

He wants to “smash my life” into the dust!


He’ll give me things that seem “well tasted.”

And then watch my life get “totally wasted!”


He wants to give me something that’ll allure!

And then rob me of any joy!  That’s for sure!


He has one purpose.  He has his own plan!

To see my life sink like a “hole in quicksand!”


Only If I trust Jesus, will Satan be defeated!

It’s only in Christ, my life can be completed!


Please come Lord Jesus and help me out!

Please take control of my life throughout!


Though Satan gets me down…

 I know YOU are here!

I know that you’re love for me is true and sincere!


There is hope and power in Christ’ resurrection!

With him on board, my life is in a NEW direction!


Christ picked me up!  His love

 surrounds me!

I’m so very glad that it was

HE that found me!

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!
