Temptations Can Enslave You!

Temptations Can Enslave You!


In our flesh...  Nothing

 good dwells!

If we're not careful,

It could lead one to hell.


Watch out when your

brother sins!

It can happen to you... 

And you don't know when.


Every temptation has

 the same goal.

To bring you into bondage 

and to damage your soul.


The word of God is true

and is clear...

Things aren't always as

 "good" as they appear.


When temptation comes your way...

 Don't take a chance!

Don't give it "a second thought."

Or "take a second glance."


The purpose of Satan's "tricks",

the Bible unfolds...

That everything he tells you,

 is "the biggest lie ever told."


One thing I pray and hope

you understand.

Is to keep your eyes on Jesus.

 And not sinful man!


What kind of life do you

really have to give?

May you have God's victory

 each day you live!

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!
