    Speak the truth
    Shame the devil
    The enemy keeps on stalking me
    Tempting me with what I outta be
    Therefore blinding me of the gifts God has for me
    His only intention
    To rob,
    steal,
    kill and destroy
    Not only my body
    My heart
    My mind
    and my soul
    Just when I feel I've reached an all time low
    My heavenly father saves me
    With his mighty hold
    He never forsakes me
    As it is written
    The devil is a liar
    Speak the truth
    Shame the devil
    Release his strong hold on you
    Come back home

    Thank you everyone for commenting. The devil is a liar and I had to release his stronghold on me, and accept God to come back into my heart.
