Other Poems by Christine Tate


The world is so alluring
she seduces you at will...
and just around the corner
awaits another thrill.
Temptation lurks close by
waiting for the chance
to lure another victim
with its wanton glance.

It's not a sin to be tempted,
but succumbing to its call
is the bait that leads men
to a spiraling downfall.
You don't have to submit
because the Lord did say,
He'll provide an escape
so you won't become its prey!

Next time she beckons you,
be ready with your sword...
tell the devil he's a liar
and rely upon the Lord.

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
