The Co-dependency Trap 3/23/12
Satan’s trap of co-dependency
Is the disease that makes “me” lose “me.”
When someone else is more important
And my life becomes more discontent,
Then it is time to make a big change,
My priorities to rearrange,
Where I am the first after my Lord
And fight all invaders with a sword.
To get outside help, if it need be,
To find my way back into the “me.”
For if I do not have my own self,
I cannot share me with anyone else.
I cannot give my all to my God
If all I have is only a fraud.
So help me find the “me” that is real,
So it is my own feelings I feel.
Oh Lord, I place myself in Your hands,
So You may withdraw all other bands
Of deceit and falsehood deep in me,
To set this prisoner finally free!
And then all honor and glory Your’s be,
To help the blind man at last to see
That You have made Him perfect in You,
And only Christ’s nature will he imbue!
Thank You, God , for Your glorious works,
And let me know that in me there lurks
No image but Christ, my Savior so true,
Who brings me back home, only to You!
