Speak Truth Over Fear

When under a barrage of attack
an attack of words
you can remain at peace even as the storm rages.
Be centered in Jesus Christ.

What a gift,
peace within your soul!

Able to remain calm,
You need not fight back;
"A gentle answer turns away wrath"
(Proverbs 15:1a).

"A perverse tongue crushes the spirit."
(Proverbs 15:4b)

I have sat under a perverse tongue;
satan gains a foot-hold,
it's his mouth that speaks.

My spirit, far from broken;
it's good to be strong-willed.
A strong-will equals an even stronger spirit.

People who attack with words are typically afraid.

Use your words to rise above the noise.
Do your best not to engage.
Rather, meet hatred with love.

Easier said than done;
However, Scripture gives the best advice:

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable
—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—
think about such things."
(Philippians 4:8)

What you store up in your heart
will be brought forth from your lips.
(Luke 6:45)

Set others free with your words;
all of us royalty when adopted by the King of kings, point everyone to Him!
