Every trap they set, I step right in it Bear traps, mines, pits, wells, ovens…… They know me better than I know myself. I can’t make it out without you Lord, That, that I do, I can’t undo. I realized it’s a trap a little too late. Traps are planted everywhere I go, everywhere I move. Every failure could cost me my life or alter my life in such a major way.
Some traps, I see but my heart hopes for the best and I want to believe that it’s real. Some traps are set on the other side of the mountain and I don’t see it till I get up the hills. Some traps are set so well, it’s hard to believe that it was all just a trap. Some traps, the hold is so painful and last so long before I’m free. Some traps, even when I’m free, it still hold me bound. Every trap that is set well prepared before I was born, it’s set with the wisdom of time. Ropes, chains, barbwire, duck-tape… My enemies are prepared to destroy me
Father, the traps leave me weary, empty of hope, foolish, naïve, stupid and useless. Every trap hinders my faith, crush my self –worth and weaken my will to try again. Please save me. Amen
Silent Enemies: The people who take from you and never have it to give back when you need it for yourself; people who never give yet always want more; the ones that we feed and they are never full; the ones that set traps over a long period of time-they invest in your long term misery; the ones that wait patiently for you to drown in your own tears and they are constantly the source of your pain. They are the ones that gently tear you apart by searching for your weakness and the ones that laugh at your misfortune and failures.
From My Heart :Silent Enemies seek you out like wolves to a lamb. Their plan is to distract, detour and discourage you from your path. They try to hurt you to the point of no return and they wait for your heart to harden and love no more. They seek out Christians that seem to truly love the Lord. They know that they can’t come to Christians, head on, because Christians are ready with the word of God to cast it down. So they tread lightly upon familiar waters (the things they have collected of your weaknesses) to dismount your armor.
The sad thing is: You don’t see this enemy until it’s too late. Nothing they have done can be undone. You are left to start over with nothing but emptiness and despair. You can’t get around what they’ve done; you just have to let it play out in time. You embrace your only choice; fall down on your knee, call on the name of Jesus to hold you together and mend your heart.
Behind this attack is a powerful lesson to learn and wisdom to gain. It’s a chance to start over, be wiser and appreciate the small things. Most importantly, be aware of the people you allow in your life. It’s like standing at the crossroads of life, make a decision, forgive yourself and move on.
