The Destructive Power of Sin!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Destructive Power of Sin…


There’s many temptations

that try to snare me.

I've seen it's destructive power!

 "It scares me!"


Many who thought they

 we're "good," have fallen.

As the addiction of sin

comes calling.


The heart is deceitfully wicked

above all things.

There's no telling the

destruction it can bring.


The Lord searches our hearts

and tests our ways!

We'll have to give him a reckoning

 one of these days.


We've all sinned and fallen

 short of God's glory.

But...  There's a

wonderful "love story."


A story of God's son who

bled and died for you.

Someone who cares... when

"there's no one else to turn to."


Why not invite Jesus into

your heart tonight?

He brings satisfaction

 and pure delight!


He’ll restore everything

that sin has taken away.

Allow him to do it now...

This could be your day!"

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!
