Break That Stronghold

Self is the stronghold of the Enemy:

As long as we dwell on ourselves

and keep solutions on a shelf

As long as we keep peace at bay

by listening to what destructive thoughts say

There is inner turmoil

and memories of things hurtful.

He seeks to turn your thoughts inward

so you can't cope

Lessening your sense of hope.

If you're going to think inward

think of Christ

the Hope of Glory, not the enemies lies.

If you need setting Free

be fully yielded

A new sense of liberty you will see

you will find your thoughts shielded.

Remember the Sacrifice of Praise

will your heart and spirit raise.

So think of Christ instead of self

and be in His Arms of Blessing held.
