Don't Let Them In

Tell me,

what do you tell yourself 

at night?

When the barriers disappear,

in the evening light,

and all of your fears 

f l o o d

into sight?

What untruths, lies, deception + fraud do 
you feed your 
mind to
F I G H T?

  6. oh man. can i say convicting? mike donehey once said fear is just a lie. you can trace any fear you have back to a lie. the lie that He is not good enough, He will not take care of you, He does not love you, etc. and oh, oh, /oh/ that is not what we are supposed to do. do not give in to the fear or the doubt or the thoughts that plague your mind. no! rather, fix your mind on Christ. whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is noble -- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy -- think about such things. (philippians 4:8)

  10. Oh. Wow. WOW. This poem managed to, in a short and abrupt way, bring to life exactly what so many of us experience. And it was so so so well written. Love it.
