Jesus... Keep Me From Sin's tempt

Jesus…   Keep Me From Sin’s Temptation!


I have so many temptations all around me.

I must be careful, lest they ensnare me!


I asked the Lord, “why does the enemy tempt me?”

He answered; “then I’ll know how much you love me!”


I thought for a moment, and was quite perplexed.

I wasn’t sure exactly what to say next!


I know the Lord has promised a way of escape.

Narrow is his way and straight is the gate!


I pray that his spirit will guide what I do and see!

If not, all of this sin will eventually control me!


I need to run into his loving and opened arms!

Only he can keep me safe from all harm!


I know that I could never do this alone!

I need God’s protection over my life and home!


There’s no hiding secrets, with his presence around!

Whatever I may try to hide, it shall be found!


I need YOU now!.  I need you so very much!

How I long for your strengthening touch!


Thank you my Lord, for helping me along!

Though I am weak...  You remain strong!


Whatever roadblock or temptation I may face…

You’ll help me to overcome by your loving grace!


You’re all I’ll ever need!  And bless me each day!

I appreciate you so much!

 More than words can say!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
