    Just Keeping it Real

    Pushing past the fumbles and mistakes of my youth
    Shuffling through the noise in search of the truth
    Standing firm on the only foundation that I know
    For it’s only by God’s grace that I continue to grow

    If it were left up to man to decide my fate
    I would have been dead long ago because of the hate
    But even the haters have assisted in elevating me to a higher level
    And I don’t hold any grudges for it’s just the work of the devil

    That serpent is clever and cunning with his schemes and devices
    For he knows our weaknesses, infirmities and vices
    While we allow him to coyly pull the wool over our eyes
    We direct the anger to each other contributing to our collective demise

    But we need to understand that Satan has a glimpse of the blessings that lie waiting ahead
    So he uses every trick and scheme to throw us off our divine path instead
    Knowing that my God controls ALL things as He sits high
    The darted attacks fall in vain because the devil is a lie

    Sure we may get bruised and a bit scarred from time to time
    But healing is always at our fingertips and it’s sweet and sublime
    Even when the night seems to last forever and a day
    God always brings the light to show us the way

    And when all hope seems gone bringing trials on every hand
    It’s upon the word of God we should continue to stand
    For only through the tests of life are we sharpened like steel
    I proclaim God is all power and truth and I’m just keeping it real!

    Hello ...

    That verse lays out some characteristics of the devil. Very important to know so we can recognize his methods and pray for protection against them.

    You kept it “real” and strong and I felt it!


    Enjoyed your words! Thanks
    Coco

    Yes the hate of man would leave us all laying by the wayside, the love of God brings hope where all looks dim. I was shaking my head all through this piece, great flow poetess.
