  1. Beat the Beast

    Beat the Beast

    What is grabbing, clawing, gnawing
    Crushing, dominating you?
    Can you feel it pulling, drawing
    You to do what you will rue?

    Are the dark, foul elementals
    Causing havoc in your life;
    Are they driving you quite mental
    Causing enmity and strife?

    Are you struggling with addictions;
    Do you crave your nicotine?
    What's your downfall; your affliction -
    Gossip, gin or heroine?

    Escalating: gaining speed.

    These are evil times we live in
    But the worst is still to come;
    What seems certain now is that the
    Time of sorrows has begun.

    I'm wanting to eventually have a discussion about Shem, Ham, and Japheth, but for now it will have to wait.

As a disciple, seize such a moment and rely on the power of God to assist you to accomplish His work. Always remember, when you desire to be a servant of God, there will be times when the work to be done, CANNOT be done by you alone. ...
