Predator

I am waiting for you

to fall off your feet
to make a wrong turn
to take your eyes off of His face

I am lying in wait

to prey on your pride
to ride on your lust
to drive a wedge into His grace

It is my desire

to see you in bonds
to cause you to suffer
to wrap your life in my oppression

You have no idea

that I hunt you down
that I crave your blood
that I am behind your depression

So keep closing down

your ears to His Word
your eyes to His might
your heart to His love-stricken voice

I don't want you to know

that you are His love
that you are forgiven
that between us, He gives you a choice.
