The Devil’s Dilemma

Twin blasts from brother bombers
set off a chain reaction of good
Limbs torn but hearts are opened
Smoke dissipates and
Goodness floods in

The devil must gnash his teeth
when he sees his plans blow up in his face
Thoughts and prayers go out
as heroes and hearts rush in
And prayers are said around the world today

the dark begets light galore
the dark unleashed light in store
Satan recoils in horror at the honor
As Samaritans become saints this day

That’s the Devil’s dilemma

The blast forces the flags back
But the ripple extends to every nation
A shockwave of sin is a temporary distortion of the natural way
As darkness wins a battle –
virtue wins the war
evil cannot make - only twist
These bloodied bodies and mangled memories are not God’s way

But the force behind it is real and hell-bent on destruction
The twisted minds that plan these attacks
will seek ruin in their limited time
This realm has not seen the last of their plots

This larger war is a marathon for us all
each called to serve on the front lines –
facing forces just as destructive
That tears apart families and shatter dreams
facing forces just as corrosive
that stain our souls and break our hearts

But the good rises again each time,
resurrecting us all
Placing us on a surer path,
making us more alert for the snake
that slithers in the shade of the garden

That’s the Devil’s dilemma

Stay calm, be vigilant
Be calm, stay vigilant
Stay vigilant
