The Enemy Weaves

The enemy weaves his invisible thread
sewing seeds of hate and bigotry
pulling on past hurts and sorrows
in a never-ending weave, he pulls
trying to close the gap on light

The light shines ever strong
bursting through the flimsy seams
breaking down negative barriers
washing clean past troubles and pain
making room for joy and love

Try though he may, the enemy fails
turning away, he reaches for another,
a soul to torment and torture
with false lies and promises
luring the innocent into the darkness

Again, the light shines forth
lighting the way forward
dimming the shadows
wrapping loneliness and fear
in His warm healing light of love

For, wherever darkness appears
the light always emerges
reminding all that love exists
and that each is welcome and loved
by the One who matters most.

The enemy never realizes
that his efforts are in vain
for light will always conquer darkness
love will always vanquish hatred
he has already lost the fight

So, give thanks to the One
for every blessing and grace
for the sacrifice freely given
out of love for us all
and welcome God’s eternal embrace
