Samson and Delilah

I reread the story of Samson and Delilah this past week. Judges 13-16 KJV. It has always amazed me how Samson kept going back to Delilah after each attempt she made to help his enemies capture him. There are many lessons in the story but the one that stood out for me when I read it this time was:

“You can’t successfully fight your enemies during the day if you are sleeping with them at night.”

Being Humble Isn’t Easy

Sometimes I am humble

Sometimes I am not

Situations that require the most Humbleness

Are the ones that test and try me

A lot

Pride rushes in

Ego takes over

I feel compelled to defend

And lose my composure

Lord help me get out of

My own way

Help me to remember to be humble

As I serve You today

Life cannot beat God

I’ve hated this woman

I’ve fed her lies

Told her

She wasn’t good enough

Allowed others

To treat her that way

I’ve tried to break her

In many ways

I’ve crashed her marriages

Broken her heart

Fed drugs to her son

Tried to rip him apart

I’ve taken her best friends

Sent some to early graves

I’ve moved her

To places where

She knows no-one

I’ve given her great wealth

Then taken it all away

I have temporarily paralyzed her

Sent illness

And depression

Tried to make her fear

What might happen next

I’ve made her feel like a failure

As a wife

As a mother

As a daughter

As a sister

As a friend

Yes, I’ve hated this woman

By now she should be broken

But still she stands

Still she smiles

Still she believes that

I cannot beat her

She see’s through me

I am only life

And she knows

She was created by God

For His purpose not mine

Almost Unseen

Being the quiet observer

It’s a hard thing to do

Our ego wants to be recognized

Not fade into the shadows

But when we take the time

To quiet our mind

To meld into the background

Almost unseen

We can bend reality

Impact the vibrational field

Raise our frequency

Have the power to heal
