the work of recovery gets under way.
The tentacled beast that launched the attack,
has returned to it’s lair…yet is feared to be back.
Terrified, the inhabitants go to their knees,
and beg their Champion to enter the trees;
‘cause they know for certain the beast is hid,
in the thick, darkened forest known as “the id”.
Clad in full armor,…. with sword in hand,
the Warrior’s commissioned to free up this land.
He lights the dark places and drives out all woes,
Spreading Sonlight wherever He goes.
And as this Champion walks through the trees,
the dreary dampness gives way to warm breeze.
At last once again all clouds disappear,
as the fresh air of “hope” begins to draw near.
Soon the Hero confronts this foe,
who’s been confessed and has no where to go.
It’s long sharp tentacles that caused such great pain,
now tremble with fear for it’s soon to be slain.
The Champion / Warrior then raises His sword,
it’s double-edged blade proclaims He is Lord;
and with one mighty blow He at last ends the reign,
of the monster called “self” who once ruled this plain.
So in your subconscious forest called “id”,
this terror of selfishness might also be hid;
confess it’s presence….give it no where to go,
and allow God’s Spirit to deal it death’s blow.
The Sonlight comes in through the rule of God’s Word,
seen in our actions, not just what is heard,
Friend this is urgent,….make no mistake…
we must reflect Jesus in each move that we make!
