Speak To My Heart,Lord With Love

Speak To My Heart,Lord, With Love

Speak to my heart Lord, with Love,

The words to calm my troubled soul

The Peace that only comes from You ,

The gift that will make me fully whole.


Defeat the devil as he is always trying

To steal that sweet Peace away from me.

Give me the wisdom then to always say

The words that will make the devil flee.


I know You would tell him,"it is written" ,

But my memory won't bring this to mind.

Embed in my heart the right words to say,

That at times are often hard for me to find.


I want him to know he's not welcome here,

There is no need to stop, just pass on by.

Once I was a child of his but never again.

Don't come to the door,no need to even try.


I know ,Dear Lord,that You are all I need ,

I've had enough of Satan's grief and pain .

I have tasted all that he had to offer me

And I'll never will go back that way again!

It seems like no matter how old you get to be

The devil still keeps trying to entice you to

come back to him. He will just try to use

different tactics than he does on the young

people. He has a list of things written that

may work on you,He has to be careful

because if he always used the same tactics

people would soon get wise to his tricks and

ignore him . If something sounds like it is

from Satan , it probably is . Better get out

of there quick!

Clara, I love this poem. Every word is true. I particularly like:

I know you would tell him 'it is written,' but my memory won't bring this to mind.

This is true for many of us and I believe that recall of scripture and where it is, is also a gift from God and lots of study of course.

I just always tell him to leave, he is not of God. That I belong to God, not to him and he is vanquished by Jesus. Another great poem. Thank you. God Bless

Hello Karen, Glad to hear from you , I am glad that you liked the poem .I never know how some of them will go over with people. I just start with what God gives me and take it from there . God knows why He gives them to me , I don't but He must have a reason for them. so I am just trying to do my best and the comments help a lot,too. Thank you ,Clara

Clara,

Beautiful poem. I find it resonates with me because this is exactly what I was thinking today- that our enemy does not tire trying. Thats why Jesus told us to watch and pray.

Yeah sometimes when you are going through a trial, you want to remember every one of the saviours words. And of course our savior would just say, "It is written" No substitute for knowing the word of God.

Hello Jane,This is much easier than your email name.Thank you for your comment, I am glad you liked the poem.I have been reading my Bible a lot more lately but I am 83 and I can't always remember things , so I am trying to get more of His words inside of me .If I have God inside there is no room for the devil. although he will never give up ,just can't seem to get it through that I want no part of him .As long as he is on earth he will keep trying. thank you .clara

I do agree. That old devil does not take a hint that we don't want him around, he just keeps coming back. How wonderful that Jesus is stronger and God is our strength.

Good to hear from you ,Blossom,The devil doesn't pay any attention when you tell him to leave ,that you don't want him here. He knows his time is growing short so he is trying to get everyone that he can. We just have to be extra careful now, he always has so many tricks to try to fool people.clara

Devil is powerless he is a toothless lion. Jesus defeated him: Luke 10:18 Yes He replied I saw Satan fall like lightening from Heaven. i have given you authority to walk on snakes and scorpions, nothing will harm you. Jesus defeated satan Jesu said it is finished.. satan runs from the name of Jesus...Praise Him! Thanks

Clara study of the scriptures sees God's intent in His scriptures, the Bible the names of Jesus is feared by all demons as children of the King we have been given authority, Jesus said we will do greater things than He did..we have the power, too many do not exercise the Power God has given us as His children, children of the King who will inherit eternity with the Lord. Stay strong put on the full Armor of God and pray in the Spirit all times as Paul directs..God Bless you

FrankS,I am thinking of the hymn, "He Never Has Failed Me Yet."So many times in our life we fail to do everything that we should but God doesn't disown us , he forgives us and loves us as if we had never failed to do what we should have done. Thank God He forgives! Clara

Speak To My Heart Very good advice. The Devil will not get me now

as I am too old and gone too far to turn back now. I plan to hold on to God's hand until the end. You are doing a great work. I guess I am

a little partial to RHYME but they are all great! Keep up the great work and send me som email. I miss you on my email and You Tube. Haven't heard from you on You Tube since many song videos ago. Get that You Tube going so you can stop by my Channel. I love you, Tessie

Speak To My Hert Lord Very nice Poem. Great inspirational job.

I found the message first, clicked on the message title and got the

Poem. The link seems to take me to your messages and I can click on the title of the message and get the Poem. Your link takes me to where you tell about yourself. Anyway, I found this Poem. It is a cold snowy Ground Hog Day here. Ground Hog didn't see his shadow but I really don't believe in that old Wive's Tale do you? I will look for another Poem. Great job here. Charlotte's birthday right? Mom and Dad's Wedding Anniverisary. Love you, Tessie


Clara Kish 3 years ago

Tessie, I guess I am not the only one who forgets sometimes. I am glad of that. The trouble is I am not improving , maybe it just goes with old age.of course there are a lot of things that I would rather forget, but those I will remember .LOL love, Cherry

Yes ...satan can be very sneaky and tries every thing in the book to deceive many this is why keeping in the word is very valuable to all of God's children and to learn to recognize when satan wants to play his deceitful games for he knows he has a short time and is on double time now...just pitiful clara...just pitiful!!!love Lynn


clara kish@yahoo. profile image

clara kish@yahoo. 3 years ago from Mt. Perry. Ohio Author

Hello Lynn, Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it .Yes. Satan can be very sneaky , he is in so many things that we would not even be concerned about , thinking it was all right , children books and so many other things they are bringing out now.I had better stop now, I could think of so many things wrong in this world now I would probably be writing all day. I am just getting ready to put a poem on here,"Will You Be Ready When Jesus Comes?" I hope you will read it .Love, Clara

Hello all,

Clara, the poem above was exactly what I needed to set in my heart for I am struggling with a difficult decision to make....and I am being tossed from one side to another and I am trying to hold God's hand tightly and I feel his love and strength...for I am very weak on my own...I don't like to be alone ...but I know my Lord is always at my side as well as in me for he makes my weakness full of strength, with His LOVE even for me who does not deserve anything, thankyou Lord for your GRACE....Love your child Linda (autumnlight)

Hello Linda , this is the third time I have put an answer on here and it wiped off completely. I went back to your profile and I see you have not put any hubs on yet. I think you need someone to talk to ,we have a lot of nice people on here that would be willing to help you.Linda, being on here with your hubs can be therapy for you.I know,it has helped me a lot to be able to talk to people from all over and I send poems in hopes they will touch someones heart .I don't know who needs help but God knows.I have had several people in the last week telling me that what I had put on was just what they needed. You say you are God's Child and I believe you and I am sure that you will not want to do anything that is not pleasing to God, Sometimes God has a different way for us to go instead of what we want to do.Try putting a few hubs on and try them ,I am sure you would like it once you start.Do keep in touch with me, Linda, I care about you,If you ever want to get in touch with me my email address is on my profile page . May God direct you the way to go. You will be in my prayers. Love,Clara
