Name them Lest they Name you

Standard

Listen, Listen,

Listen again

Listen inside.

What do you feel?

Fear

insecurity

envy

dishonesty

gossip

lust.

All the above?

Listen some more.

Shame

Pride

anger

manipulation

competition…

Listen, listen carefully. Start to name them. Name them with sound. Shout. Loud. Each has a name. Name them lest they name you.

Fear only knows fear

Shame only knows shame

They name with what they know

Name them lest they name you

 

Silent; pretending not to exist.

They hide; in churches, in mosques, in good grades and a great jobs. In friends, in families, in dreams and in goals.

As they hide, they grow.

Name them lest they name you.

 

Name them lest they name you. This is freedom….Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
