Samson And Delilah...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Samson and Delilah…


Samson was tempted by Delilah’s

beauty and charm.

It should have set off in his mind, an “alarm.”


There was a promise to God that he had made.

But in the midst of temptation, a price was paid.


As he gave away his secret, the Lord left him.

And soon, the Philistine army was with him.


He soon realized the consequences of his sin.

A life of slavery to his enemies shortly began.


He lost his eyesight and things dear to him.

The power and strength were no longer with him.


He was brought into the temple of the god, Dagon.

He asked for the temple’s pillars to lean on.


He called out to God with one deep long breath.

And brought many others, with him, to his death.


May this be a reminder to all who may read this.

We need to honor God, so his presence won’t leave us!


We need to think of the consequences of things we do.

And affirm that our commitment to God is TRUE!


Be careful of temptations that are there to snare you!

The enemy is real!  And his wickedness is around you!


Stay close to God! Cherish a deep love for him!

Read his word, that you may better know him!


There’s a story from this, that’s for us all to learn!

Let’s keep our eyes on Jesus, our focus and concern!

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!
