You've Tried Lust... Now Try God's

You’ve Tried Lust…

Now Try God’s Love!


Have you desired to

seek godly purity?

Or enjoy watching

 perversion and nudity?


What one sees, 

 captivates the eyes.

Yet, many pretend to be

"spiritual and wise."


Be careful when you indulge

a “little here, and there."

You may think; "no one's

watching or cares."


You believe this "thing"

cannot master you.

Yet you're doing things

you shouldn't do.


Living day by day, thinking

 "you're in charge."

But this sin inside of you

is growing large.


Nothing should ever replace

 God's love in your house.

Not the love for your family

 and spouse.


The things in life which

 you may “enjoy…"

Are actually robbing you

 of a true joy.


By falling in love with Jesus,

you can once again.

Be set free and find

 total freedom within!

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!
