When we believe we’re not good enough
The fact-checker will advise,
That we’re created in the image of God
And precious in His sight.
Although the image is marred
Through our fallen nature and sin,
There’s always hope to be reconciled
When we trust in only Him.
When we worry or have anxiety
The fact-checker will reveal,
To come to Jesus all who labor
Or when heavy laden we feel.
The fact-checker is reliable;
A source of truth and integrity,
It will tell us what we need to hear
And how we ought to live.
It’s a fact-checker for our soul
Pertaining to the spirit,
With many gems and nuggets of gold
And purity within it.
When we need an answer
The fact-checker will ensure,
To provide love, guidance, hope and faith
In order to endure.
It inspires us to forgive
And love our enemies too,
To pray for those who use us
And will guide in all that’s true.
The fact-checker is the bible
And not all forms of media,
Since God’s word instils faith and hope
Not envy, lies or fear.
It encourages us to be peacemakers;
To heal and to renew,
And look out for the interests of others;
To not be selfish too.
The fact-checker is the standard;
It is valid with authority,
Written by man but inspired by God
Through love for eternity.
It is living and it’s powerful
And will certainly transform;
It will blossom in our heart and soul
And calm every wind or storm.
The fact-checker is timeless
Because God’s stamp of approval remains,
As His word pierces to the division of soul and spirit
So we’re no longer the same.
But it heals because it’s filled with truth
And restores us back to Him,
It’s the living word that washes us
And cleanses from all sin.
