Saturday’s Thought From Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Jealousy

I am having fun going back and reblogging some of my older stuff! I hope you are enjoying them as well ūüėČ

What about God?

Lord, send us Your angels please
to fight and save Your way
before all wickedness and disease
find a place to stay.

Jealousy has reared its head
searching out this age,
damn it back to hell instead,
lock it in a cage!

Stop it from instilling doubt,
whispering in our ear,
making us scream and shout
at those we hold so dear.

It truly is the devil’s ploy,
at tool that he does use
to tear apart and to destroy
and to thoroughly confuse.

Love is what sets us free
a seed for us to sow
and spread across land and sea
for all the world to know.

This would be the very end
of Satan’s long-planned war
that he has, you can depend,
brought to our own back door.

So come to Jesus, take a vow,
no matter what you do
to the evil one do not bow
but…

Evil Deceptions – Part II

(Image Source: my.opera.com)

As soon as they got into the truck, without even looking at her, Jeffery started screaming, ‚ÄúI stood there and watched you for a while and you were flirting with every man that passed by!!¬† You are nothing but a slut aren‚Äôt you!!‚Ä̬† And then before she knew it she was seeing stars for the first time in her life, he had actually hit her in the face and then, wham! ¬†He hit her again!

The pain shot through her brain like molten lead, Karen was in shock. ¬†Disbelieving what was happening to her, she screamed, “Oh my God! Wwwhhyyy?!” ¬†Tears were streaming down her face, she shook uncontrollably as her teeth chattered. ¬†Shaking her head back and forth, she tried to look at Jeffrey but everything was just a blur at first. ¬†Finally her vision started to clear and then she wished that it hadn’t because what she saw scared her more that the realization of being hit had.

“You had that coming you bitch!”, he screamed at her. ¬†His face was crimson in color and his eyes were wide with a crazed, glassy look to them. ¬†He was snarling at her through grit teeth. ¬†He was unrecognizable. ¬†He looked like some wild psycho from a horror movie, a serial killer, positively demonic!

Karen was trying to make sense of it all and failing miserably.¬† She knew that she had done nothing wrong, never flirted with any man in the park unless you call smiling back at them flirting!¬† She was not a rude person, if someone smiled at her she smiled back at them, male or female.¬† But she hadn’t spoken to anyone.¬† What did she do wrong?

She didn’t even register what Jeffrey was saying or rather screaming.¬† Her mind was in shock, face in pain unlike anything that she had ever known before and she could feel her eye swelling up!¬† “Oh my God!”, she thought, “Did he just give me a black eye?¬† What am I going to tell the people at work?¬† What will Jessica say?¬† Will it be ‘I told you so!'”¬† Karen just couldn’t believe that any of this was real.

“I must be having a nightmare!¬† Yeah, that’s it and I’ll wake up here in a minute.¬† Jeffrey and I have had some pretty bad arguments lately but he would never hit me…”

She did not get any further with the thought when reality was back, Jeffrey was pulling her from the truck because they were home.¬† Once she became aware that it wasn’t, Karen didn’t know what to do next, all she knew was that she was¬† very afraid to be alone with him behind closed doors.¬† Was he going to beat her up?¬† Hit her in the face again?¬† What would happen?

She wanted to run, just make a bolt between apartment¬†buildings, across the back lawns and over to her friend’s house that only lived a couple of blocks away.¬† Jeffrey was tugging at her elbow and attempting to hurry her inside.¬† Karen tensed immediately and began dragging her feet, stalling for a second so that she could think…

The Monster Within

 

There’s a green-eyed monster
within us all
who’s there¬†just waiting
for us to call

He lies dormant
deep down inside
and his time
does he bide

Until the rise
of our jealousy
fans the flames
to burning envy

And then we will
let him out
That his poison
we’ll scream and shout

When nothing good
in him does dwell
for he’s a demon
straight from hell

God did command us
to keep him away
that he does not
lead us astray

So always remember
we  have the power
to slay that monster
every day and hour!

to the evil one do not bow

Do not covet what you see,
it’s really not “all that”,
from temptation you must flee
’cause heaven’s where it’s at!
