Eternal Day of No Enemies

gaillovesgodspoetry

Jealousy, envy, rage,
All create the fiercest enemies.
Foes that torture,
And bring you to your knees.
They carry hatred and vengeance,
And weapons to wound and kill.
They seek that one opportunity,
Because they will.
Deep inside each one of us
Is another wicked foe
Causing havoc in our mind,
And to those we love and know.
That old man is eaten up
In a flesh of sinful nature.
Without the Holy Ghost,
He can never spiritually mature.
God can be an enemy
To those who stand against Him,
To those who threaten His children,
Or would dare to harm them.
God can stop the evil, wicked, and ugly.
God can put to death.
God can stop the heart.
God can remove breath.
But He has created a place
Where no enemies are allowed.
All tongues will confess.
All knees will bow.
This eternal Day will come,
To know…

Besetting Foe (My Ugly Enemy)

You disgust me. I detest you.
The way you come at me
as if I want you.
The way you pursue me
as if I desire you.
The way you persist
as if I cannot resist.
You charge at me
from every possible source.
You think you will conquer me
with force.
But you are my enemy,
my foe I abhor.
I cannot tolerate you.
You are a foul odor!
You think I lust for you.
You think you tempt me.
But my God has empowered me
to rebuke you.
He has aligned Himself with me
and fights for me.
Your tactics to invade my dreams
only inflame my rage.
You have no attraction over me.
You are ugly and contempt.
Throw all of the junk of the world at me
as much as you want.
God is the only one I care to think on.
Trash my environment.
Trash my view.
But my soul is His
and always will be.
Temptation….
that’s what they call you.
But you are not tempting to me.
Just as you tempted my Savior,
you vie for me.
But with His strength,
I too will cling to God’s word.
Get thee behind me!
The cross is before me
every step of the way!
