Satan: “What do you think you are doing? You aren’t qualified, credentialed, or even relevant! No one cares what you think. No one is going to read what you write. Get over yourself - you have no voice! You have been less than mediocre since the day you were born. You will never do anything the world would acknowledge or accept. Stop trying. Stop speaking. Stop writing. Stop. Give up foolish human.”

God: “You aren’t paying attention to him again, are you? Look here. Look up at me. Focus. Listen! I didn’t create you for nothing. I made you uniquely devised to step up to every challenge that I planned for you. I never promised that you would be successful or even feel accomplished as the world defines those words, did I? 

All I said was, follow Me. Trust Me. You know the world will never understand how I work all things together. Big, small, miraculous, mundane - unnoticeable. Human words! I called you to do things that the world is not able to see or applaud. 

The world is temporal, fickle and often foolish. Why would you want the world to see you? I see you. I know you. Don’t give up here in the last hour. Be good and faithful. If I am not done with you, you must believe there is much left I have for you to do.”

Me: Okay then. Bug off Satan.

For Him,

Happy NewYear! 


  1. Wow, I overhear pieces of that conversation from time to time as well.
    As usual, your response is just right -- and very helpful for me to hear.

    1. You started this - I call my Muse Michele. :-)

  2. Yes, yes, yes! Amen! It's unrealistic to think that Satan is not part of the conversation. The question is always who we choose to believe. Looks like you are focused in exactly the right place!

    1. Sometimes I forget that the devil would ignore me if I wasn’t causing him trouble. So there’s that. I must be doing something right. :-[]

  3. If you don't mind, I will print this out and distribute it to everyone I know - after posting it all over my house, car, etc.

    That dirty devil slips in when we least expect it and does his dirty work with little effort. You would think after all these years I would keep an active BOLO alert in place against words like those you described.

    "Christ in me" . . . my mantra for the new year!

    Thanks, Meema. May your new year be blessed and full of bug repellent :D

    1. Ha! Thanks for that LOL! to start the new year! And, yes, we give the devil too much leeway. He’s a major pest!

      Happy New Year, dear!
