This is my last Halloween post. I hope you enjoyed the stories. If you missed any be sure to go back and check out The Maze, The Funhouse of Mirrors and The Haunted House.
Even though I am no Edgar Allan Poe this is the scariest yet ( but don’t worry, it has a happy ending.) We all wear masks! This mask story is just one of many I could tell. It is a true story and it could happen to you. Not that the other stories weren’t true- that’s up for you to decide. Reader beware!
You wake up each morning
Ignore all the warnings
With a smile on your face
Our love was being replaced
Breakfast made and the kids are dressed
Don’t even know their lives are about to be a mess
Out the door they go to school You let the devil make you a fool
I come home from work
But you’ve been digging in dirt
You show me that beautiful smile
Right now, you are just in denial
You wear a mask of past shames
Yet, you continue to play games
You say you aren’t the one to blame
The mask of your past caused this pain
You where the mask of lies and deceive
Your family is the one you leave
You’re wearing a mask
Did you think this would last?
But you can’t hide it well
Did you think I couldn’t tell?
Oh love, what have you done?
Was it all just for fun?
You’re tearing our world apart You’re breaking our kids hearts
Fast forward through the hurt and lies
Fast forward through the tears we cried
Fast forward through the pain What did you think you had to gain?
I gave up and God stepped in
“Now let me take all this sin, ”
He whispered to me “it’s not about you,
I want you to stay until I am through”
He walked us through the dirt and mud
Our love went from ashes to a bud
You removed the mask you wore so long
Now you are back with God where you belong
Through all His redeeming grace
Our marriage found a new starting place
So my friends what can I say?
You have to pray to God each day
What can get you through the worst?
In your marriage, God must come first
Don’t fall for the tricks of the evil one
Don’t let your marriage come undone
His words are smooth but they are not true Don’t let the devil come between God and you
Be careful of the seeds you sow
Guard your heart with the truth you know
Be careful of the mask you wear
Let Jesus carry the cross you bear
Remember when you first fell in love Love each other, look to God above
Don’t let the devil come and destroy
Don’t fall for his games, his ploys
Even though you once believed he who lied
Because of God, our marriage survived
The devil tried but he isn’t winning With God our end became a new beginning
This story is scary because it is true
I will pray it doesn’t happen to you
But if it does, it doesn’t have to be the end of your story
Let God use your struggles and pain for His glory
