She still visits me
although she is not welcome.
She knows that I am stronger.
But that doesn't bother her.
She takes advantage of any situation.
A mispoken word.
A hurt feeling.
A head cold.
She'll just try to sneak in...
she is slow and subtle.
And sometimes I let my guard down...
and I let her in...
And I become just like her.
But it isn't for long
because I have learned her weaknesess...
and I have learned my strengths.
I have heard that she has been visiting you lately.
And you are having a hard time resisting her.
You are weak.
And she knows it.
But she is no longer a secret.
We don't have to hide her anymore.
Although some do.
Has been defeated.
On January 15th, 2006
she came for a visit.
And she was ruthless.
But God has comforted me
in my troubles.
So now I can
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our troubles,
so that we can comfort those in any trouble
with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
