Last year, I noticed that there are
buttons that are pressed
More often than not at times when I am Stressed…
Retracting from the Truth.
For me the buttons that I hear click down the most
Are that of fear
Seemingly contradictory, they are actually the same.
By merely avoiding the help of Another while hiding
Openly says it…
Meanwhile, the enemy stands back and chuckles in the shadows looking for the next hit.
Lust and vanity are two such places
He has been known to trip me up.
And in these cases
I think I’m learning.
Learning to listen to the still small voice
Around these choices and whispers
“I love you”
Through the wind
“…he’s pressing your buttons
– don’t let him!”

What are your buttons?
Need some help with them this year?
