Immersed

You will hear lies

coming from within

and from the outside

 

And it is infinitely important

that you immerse yourself

in Truth

 

For if you hear the lies

about you

or God

or life

and you can’t recall Truth

 

You just might believe

those lies

 

So immerse

saturate

drown yourself

in Truth

 

It’s about life or death

for your mind

for your heart

for your soul

– Susie Stewart

 

…Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

– 2 Corinthians 11:14 (NLT)

 

Let the words from the book of the law be always on your lips. Meditate on them day and night so that you may be careful to live by all that is written in it. If you do, as you make your way through this world, you will prosper and always find success.

– Joshua 1:8 (VOICE)

 

How can a young person live a clean life? By carefully reading the map of your Word. I’m single-minded in pursuit of you; don’t let me miss the road signs you’ve posted. I’ve banked your promises in the vault of my heart so I won’t sin myself bankrupt. Be blessed, God; train me in your ways of wise living. I’ll transfer to my lips all the counsel that comes from your mouth; I delight far more in what you tell me about living than in gathering a pile of riches. I ponder every morsel of wisdom from you, I attentively watch how you’ve done it. I relish everything you’ve told me of life, I won’t forget a word of it.

– Psalm 119:14-16 (MSG)

 

May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing to you,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

– Psalm 19:4 (NLT)

 

And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

– Deuteronomy 6:5-9 (NLT)

  1. Susie this is so good! Just what I needed today. I love your poem. I’d even add it’s about life and death for your body as the power of life and death are in the tongue and we speak what we believe ❤️ I’m sharing this. Thanks!
