The devil will hold on for dear life, but when he loses his grip, he loses his grip. Cheesed off to the enth degree, mightily ****** off, yes, but when he loses his grip that’s that.
Do not be afraid of anything. Have faith and keep facing forward, with determination and a sword of Truth. Stay in the light. Be brave. Be prepared to stand alone, but stand anyway. Be prepared to be mocked, set aside, left out, but smile anyway. Be prepared to be ripped off, bruised, lied about and lied to, but set your sights on higher things anyway.
“Never, ever give up.”
The Light always wins, anyway.
There will be “beauty for ashes” …
After all, this is how diamonds are made and how gold is refined.
Rest in God.
Trust and do good.
And shine anyway.
