Have you ever experienced a day, when it seemed like you just did not exist?
A time when you were actually a passenger in a truck or car with someone at your side?
And as you were aware of every breath you took and the scenery before your eyes of God’s beautiful creation…. You still did not feel that you existed.
Today was a day that was like that for me.
I rode beside my husband in his truck and God’s astounding beauty I certainly did see.
Then the devil started belittling me in my mind as his imps whispered in my ear.
I adjusted my Helmet of Salvation knowing the end is surely near.
I was struck with fierce blows as I sat there today.
I silently talked to Jesus, for I know He is the way.
I have recently been accused of things which I have not done.
I choose to stay silent and stand for God and choose not to run.
My mind was tortured by the untruths that were told.
As the imps kept whispering in my ears.
But God knows the truth and knows my heart.
Behold enemy satan… I do not fear.
God is in control of every breath I take
And every beat of my heart.
When I can not stand, I will kneel…
I know exactly where to start.
God hides my soul, in the cleft of a Rock.
Against all these schemes I will survive.
The battle was waged and Victory was took.
God definitely wins…. How do I know?
I have read the end of His Book.
So the next time you feel as you do not even exist
And feel like a ghost and not even seen.
Just say the name Jesus…. And never be afraid.
On Him you can fully lean.
I pray God has blessed you as you have read these very few words.
And if you think He won’t, then think again my friend,
Because my prayer for you He has already heard.
