Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

You are cornered by the devil himself

In a dark alley

All alone

There is nothing there by trash and a gutter


He takes a hand to your mouth

And says, “You are about to give birth to my demonic dreams”

He continues on, “Don’t speak when I am talking to you”

”You have Godly intentions but I will lead you astray”


The devil service comes for you and me

Don’t listen to these abstract heartless threats

They only threat when they feel they have nothing left


But they are ready and armored

Love only breaks these assaults of these dark forces

But trial and hardship must come first

To truly overcome and testify to God’s goodness


Trusting God can feel like throwing a coin in the wishing well

Or winning a coin toss

But victory all starts with the cross


The devil service comes for you and me

Don’t forget

Shine that light brighter

  1. It speaks to the hope one might find in the moment of darkness. The sliver of light which pulls us through. Thanks for pointing me to this one Carly.
