There’s an old saying that if the devil isn’t chasing you, he must be walking beside you. That’s for damn sure… I don’t know if anyone feels this way, but when I try to do right something ALWAYS gets in the way! It’s like Satan says, “No bitch, remember who you used to be. You can’t change.” The closer I get to God and try to be righteous, the more obstacles I have to face. Can I win?? I guess I’m writing this for all of you who feel like me. The devil doesn’t want you to change into a better person. He wants to remind you of who you used to be, which is why he’ll put you in situations that could bring you back to an old, familiar place.
I also notice that when I’m doing wrong, things seem to go my way… That’s how the devil works. He gives you what you want for doing his dirty work. You’re out here sinning and living the good life because of it. But guess what? As soon as you stop working for him, he’ll turn on you. The minute you want to live right, Satan will do everything in his power to bring you back down. It’s a struggle everyday to not let him win. Some days I really want to turn back around and revert to my old ways, but I’m keeping my head up. I’m here to tell you don’t pay your old demons any attention. Just keep your head held high and stay on your current path. Evil will chase you, tempt you, and distract you but God has a bigger plan in mind. Trust me, the path to enlightenment is neither easy nor fun, but it will lead you to something amazing if you just have faith.
