This is a poem by my seventeen year old daughter Kelsey Anne that I want to share with you.
Hope you enjoy!
Are you mortally gripped with sin
And the terror of this life?
No strong grasp of what you see;
Full with repulsion and deep strife?
The rest, given you freely
Has been quickly pushed away.
You rush to sin and evil,
When you should simply kneel and pray.
Such a wicked heart beheld
The dark lusting you stepped in;
Glad the flesh chose errant ways-
And strong, depressing chains of sin.
Now, look deeply in your heart;
This path- rashly you desire.
Gripped by the claws of malice-
Your path- a morbid death through fire.
Oh, the burden you must hold
Without any hope or care.
May you see-with endless joy
The love Adonai want’s to share?
Then you’d quickly shy away
From the evil clutch you see-
To the world- you could proclaim
“Now through Jehovah, I’m set free!“.
I see, instead, that you chose
A heart simply full of greed.
The flesh, I glimpse, has triumphed-
You have divided want from need.
Full with guile- the corrupt man
Will be constrained as he’ll fall,
For his strong hold on conceit-
When he should trust the Lord of all.
When life conveys some desire
To go enter in “small sin”,
Now know, Christ goes on before-
The feared takeover- He shall win.
