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.
