A Song of Deception: A Stranger in My House

These words about deception ring in my spirit today. As these days progress, more and more deception is coming our way. “Be not deceived” was a warning from God. The only way to not be deceived, is the Spirit of Truth within you…so reach for the Lord for He sent His Holy Spirit to be our Guide… I pray that hearts will be opened to receive His warning….

When we were young, so innocent and pure,
I thought our love would forever endure.
I totally trusted and in him believed.
Never expecting to be totally deceived.

Then I was broken, and tossed away.
A victim of lies, and deceit his way.
He said the loved me, but lied for years.
Holding me close and calling me dear.

So wounded….and broken indeed.
My heart… ripped out, it seemed.
Destroyed… by deceptive deeds.
A stranger… in my house to me.

When I was happy, or so it seemed,
I looked to him, to my man to please.
Totally ignoring, the Lord and His deeds.
And living this life by its meager means.

But I was abused and emotionally beat.
Trying to please him was a useless feat.
Never expecting that he was living a lie.
Using me up and wanting me to die.

So wounded….and broken indeed.
My heart… ripped out, it seems.
Destroyed… by deceptive deeds.
A stranger… in my house to me.

He lived a lie, pretending to care.
And used me up, like a working mare.
Always wanting, but never pleased.
Biding his time for his planned release.

He said he waited for that certain day,
When he was ready, to be on his way.
Never suspecting that he didn’t love me,
totally fooled by his deceptive deeds.

So wounded….and broken indeed.
My heart… ripped out, it seems.
Destroyed… by deceptive deeds.
A stranger… in my house to me.

But when I was broken, and tossed away,
I cried to God,”Help Me”, I pray.
I need You now, more than before!
Please help me now, I need you more!

Forgive me Lord, for looking towards man
When you were there and reaching a Hand.
For I would never have been so deceived,
with Your Spirit in me, this I believe.

So wounded….and broken indeed.
My heart… ripped out, it seems.
Destroyed… by deceptive deeds.
A stranger… in my house to me.

  1. Powerful indeed! Thank you for your heart to reach out. This poem reminds me to be wise as the serpent and harmless as the dove.

  2. Yes, this is how it felt with my husband. Like he was a stranger to me. The things we had talked about before we were married didn’t happen. New behavior showed up and I was confused. I kept wondering “Why?”.

    • Deception… It has fooled many. I was deceived till God revealed many of the truths that had been hidden from me. My life seem like an entire lie. I hope you read my book that is about to be released… May God bless you!

    • Thank you so much for your encouraging words and continued support as I walk this path with the Lord. I know that I am to reach out with truth for He is Truth and He will touch the hearts of those who are broken by the abuses of the world. Many blessings to you.

  3. Scripture tells us that the heart is deceitful above all things.

    One of my life verses is….
    Psalms 139:23-24 (paraphrased)
    Lord search me and prove me and see if there is any wicked or hurtful thing in me and help me and make me clean.

    • Thanks Diana… I pray that God will touch your friend and all the broken to give them hope and raise them up from the ashes of their past. Thanks you for your continued encouragement and support.

  4. Thank you for sharing this post on deception……A great scripture reading that fits with topic of deception is…..

    2 Timothy 3:1-17

    Today, we are called to be wise and strong…..

    Be wise….Be courageous…..Know truth…Know God’s word….You will not be Deceived
