We try to pretend we re fine but we re not We re disillusioned devastated let down driven to the brink of utter frustration. disappointed, And in those quiet unexpressed unwrestled through disappointments Satan is handcrafting his most damning weapons. against us and those we love It s his subtle seduction to get us alone with our thoughts so he can slip in whispers that will. develop our disappointments into destructive choices. If the enemy can isolate us he can influence us, And his favorite entry point of all is through our disappointments The enemy comes in as a whisper lingers like a gentle. breeze and builds like a storm you don t even see coming But eventually his insatiable appetite to destroy will unleash. the tornado of destruction he planned all along He doesn t whisper to our disappointed places to coddle us He wants to.
