BENT BUT NOT BROKEN

No matter what type of games Satan tries to play in my life;

I realize the only reason he bothers me is to stir up strife;

Satan wants me to be crippled with infirmities and miss out on my blessings from on high;

He wants me to suffer, he wants me to give up and die;

But I refuse to be bound and defeated; I refuse to give up;

I am going to wait on God to fill up my cup.

Bent But Not Broken.


I know that God has a husband He has molded in His image for me;

I just don’t know when that time will be;

Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of this not seen;

Trust in God always because people say things they don’t mean;

Don’t put your trust in man; he will lie to your face;

Through Satan, a man will perform his task swiftly and with haste.

Bent But Not Broken.


A man does not care about your feelings; he does not care about your life;

He will stomp on your heart and cut out your joy with a knife;

A man wants what he wants and he will do anything to get it no matter what it takes;

Even if it’s a true friendship to fake;

No matter what the cost a man will try to physically and mentally beat you down;

If you let it continue you to miss out on your crown.

Bent But Not Broken.


A man will smile in your face and tell you what he thinks you need to hear;

Without any reverence to God and without fear;

A man will tell you that he love you and care for you;

He will tell you there is nothing he would not do;

But in the end the truth will come to light and you will be hurt;

To know that a man you loved truly treated you like dirt.

Bent But Not Broken.


No matter what a man does to hurt me and make me feel low;

I am going to continue to let the God in me show;

No matter how much a man tries to bring me down, still I rise;

I will ensure that I keep my eye on the prize;

I am going to hold my head up high and be proud of myself;

And I am going to pray and believe in God until death.

Bent But Not Broken.


For God healed me from my infirmity, God has set me free;

God has opened my eyes and now I can see;

God did not give me a spirit of fear but a sound mind;

To praise His All Mighty name and worship everyday sublime;

God has healed me and I thank Him for doing wonderful things for me;

I thank Him for filling my broken heart with glee.

Bent But Not Broken.
