As many heads as a Hydra, and as many lives as a cat!
Beware of SELF! This is the worst enemy we have to deal with!
It is a large family — and I cannot count up all the branches! They are all nearly related to Satan — and they are all a sworn enemy to our peace.
If we lie low — then the Lord will raise us up.
But if we will be something — then His arm will surely pull us down.
That monster SELF has as many heads as a Hydra, and as many lives as a cat! It is more than twenty-five years since I hoped it was fast nailed to the Cross! But alas, it is alive — and still mixing with and spoiling everything I do!
(N.B. The Hydra was a serpentine mythological water monster with many heads.
For every head chopped off — the Hydra would re-grow a couple of new heads.)
