Pest Control

Nibbling ’round the edges
doubt and fear
unravel our seams
Gnawing at our souls
sin and shame
wreak havoc within
More often
just a nuisance
never-ending
Over time they work
to destroy the heart

Scattering away
the evil termites go
the Light invades
they shriek
and shrivel
they run and hide
Peace takes over
restoration begins
scars will remain
but the garment 
of our life
is made new

The Light comes
and Darkness is dispelled
The Light comes
and Darkness cannot overcome it
Thanks be to God
