But God

You tried to make me feel useless, but God made me feel valuable

You tried to tell me I was nothing, but God told me I was everything

You tried to push me down, and may have gotten me down for a while, but God helped me get up, time after time

You tried to make me feel meaningless, pathetic, downtrodden and hopeless, but God filled me with hope that surpassed my understanding

You tried to mock me, but God raised me

You tried to yell lies at me, but God whispered His truth all around me

You tried to tell me my heart was broken, but God brought the healing

You tried to pour thoughts into my mind to torment me, but God’s peace overcame

You tried to push me down, kick me, hurt me, harm me and hinder me, but God lifted me up

You tried to blind me, take away the vision placed in my heart from my Father, but God’s eyesight could not be diminished

You tried to make me feel neglected, but God’s love for me reigned

You try, and you fail, over and over again

So, you see, devil, there is nothing you can do to make this woman stay down, stop getting up. I am His and He is mine.

I am a woman standing because God still stands, and He will always remain standing

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” -Romans 8:38-39

I am a woman standing on the Word, believing in its infallibility and knowing I am all that God says I am.
