A delusion is a false belief;

An irrational one indeed,

And although there’s evidence it is not real

The lie is still believed.

Because when we believe we are good

Without God’s intervention,

We are living in delusion

With false ideas and perceptions.

When we believe we’re something we’re not

We are being delusional,

And by believing all the fallacies

We’re equipped for a mighty fall.

When our delusions are shattered

It’s actually a blessing in disguise,

When the layers of lies and idolatry

Are peeled before our eyes.

When our delusions are shattered

We’re actually set free,

Because the bondage that held us firmly in chains

With its deception will no longer be.

God wants to set us free

And it’s His will that to perish are none, 

And when He knocks upon our heart

He calls us one by one.

But not everyone will respond

But will harden their hearts even more,

And given over to a debased mind

To be lost forevermore.

What a remarkable moment

When we realise we’ve been bewitched,

For years of our entire life

And now time to make the switch.

We’ve been misled for decades

By everything mainstream,

But when real eyes realise the real lies

Shattered will be our false hopes and dreams.

It’s an immense blessing

When the eyes of our heart finally see,

The truth to be able to discern

The facts from the heresies.

It may be painful initially

But when our idols come crashing down,

We realise we’ve worshipped all the wrong things

And now time to turn our lives around.

When our delusions are shattered

Where true peace and joy we see,

We thank God for His revelation and grace

Where we can finally see eternity.

Because nothing on this earth

Is worth risking our eternal soul,

Let’s rejoice when delusions are shattered indeed

So we can see God’s truth behold!
