Is Sin Pulling You Down?

Is Sin Pulling You Down?


God knows it's easy to get

discouraged and upset.

When sin is pulling you down...

 But you can't escape "just yet."


Perhaps you tried "everything,"

yet don't know what else to do.

Often wondering if there's "anyone"

who can "help you through."


There’s things you've done, 

 that you asked God to forgive.

Yet struggle with this

 each day you live.


You go to church and

put on a big "smile."

Yet wonder if living is

"worth the while."


You have sought prayer

 time and time again.

And yet constantly struggle

with this habitual sin.


Many times you've tried to 

call on Jesus' name.

Yet find yourself in another

 sin of "guilt and shame."


Jesus is here now!

He wants you to know.

Every sin in your life, 

you must completely let go.


Start today by not thinking of things

done in the past.

Come to Jesus now!  He'll give you

 true joy that will LAST!


Allow God to bring to your life

the needed victory now!

He'll make you a brand new person!

 And HOW!

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!
