Persecute Me


Tell me I’m foolish. Ostracise me from your groups. Hate me. Reject me.

It only makes me stronger.

Throw stones at me. Chase me from your homes. Steal from me.

It only makes me stronger.

Say cruel things to me. Lock me in a prison. Do your worst.

It only makes me stronger.

I am stronger because I have my Lord who shields me from everything that could ever be done to me. His love for me shines through all the fear, all the hate, all the persecution.


He is Glory.

He is Life

He is mine.

Thanks for sharing this....It encouraged me today. I have been experiencing this recently as I have been getting closer to God. But, as your post says. It is only making me stronger. Amen

Blessings,
Tammy

Praise the Lord...I echo this with you....

Deborah Ann said...

True that!

Tammy, it's "funny" how that happens. Often when we draw closer to God other forces want to pull us away and things get rough. But it only makes us draw even closer to God.

Thanks Lorena, Cherie, Karen, and Deborah Ann for leaving a comment. Yes it is such a blessing to know we have our Lord who will always carry us.

Thanks for the (much needed) encouragement, Melanie, but these aren't my words. They are God's. I don't think I am clever or wise enough on my own ;)
