Jesus, Help Me to Avoid Temptation!


There’s so much sin in the world around me.

There’s many temptations that surround me.


Lord, help me to be careful in the things I do

Jesus, help and teach me to be more like YOU!


Help me to avoid the alluring temptations.

May I daily walk in the joy of your salvation.


Help me to delight in the love of Jesus so sweet.

It’s only in your love, that my life is complete.


My life needs to be nurtured in God’s holy word.

A passion for his holiness must daily be stirred.


I need God’s presence to fill my heart and soul.

It’s in Christ alone, that my life is made whole!


Wholeness in Christ brings an important key.

Walking in his goodness and getting victory!

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!
