Though the world is filled with anger,
our words must answer without slander.
Words that deflect Satan’s intentions,
keeping us shielded from his deceptions.
So often we do not take our thoughts captive,
before our own words have caused us entrapment.
Following Christ’s example is always better,
catching the devil off-guard with each letter.
A soft response coming from our hearts,
will cause any daggers to depart.
Whereas harsh words pack more fuel,
with full intentions of starting a duel.
Duel’s multiply right before our eyes,
giving root to hate propelled by lies.
Just as Jesus calmed the wind and sea,
we should follow His words of peace.
His words should come from our hearts,
causing incoming storms to depart.
Tempers can quickly be extinguished,
when harsh words are relinquished.
You see, “peace be still,” is not just for the sea.
It is also intended for each living being.
Let Jesus speak to the storms in your life,
so your heart will not be filled with strife.
Mark 4:39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
