Flawed

I just wrote this after reading chapter one of “The Three Battlegrounds” by Francis Frangipane. I’m reading a friends book but bought a copy today that I plan to give away. It is an awesome book. If you’re interested in ‘winning’ a copy of this book, just comment on this post. Remember how I say the mind is the devil’s playground? Well, this book explains why, to a degree. It explains how the devil feeds on our sin. Just think, Chapter 1 and I’m already touched…You can check out a ‘sneak peek’ of the book here. (Click the book to see inside.) 

Thanks for reading…

FLAWED
The darkness is bleak and I cannot see.
I feel his putrid breathe following me.
I want out! I wanna be free!
Won’t you Lord, please grant me some peace?
 
Satan demanded permission to sift me like wheat.
And with my own sin is how I am beat.
He knows my weaknesses, I allow my defeat.
For just a taste of God’s mercy I fall to my knees.
 
The serpent has slithered around my weary soul.
And he longs to turn my tender heart into coal.
But “Jesus!” I scream. “I’ll pay any toll!”
“Please Lord, Please, just make me whole!”
 
Must start the healing by submitting to God.
Sacrifice isn’t easy nor is admitting I’m flawed.
Meek and transparent I escape the façade.
God is so merciful, to Him daily I laud.
 
I turn from the darkness and stare into God’s eyes.
I admit to Him my faults, yet He’s not surprised.
He tells me He loves me and parts the grey skies.
Light shines through my darkness, I feel my faith rise.
