Wandering Eyes

Wandering Eyes...

Have you been captured by
the wandering of your eyes?
Things you once held as true and
wholesome-- you now despise.

Have you been “captured”
by an outward beauty?
Thereby neglecting your
God-given duty?

Has your soul been consumed with
sin's all-consuming fire?
With an uncontrollable appetitie
and an ungodly desire.

In your heart, is the Holy Spirit
an uninvited guest?
No wonder your life is in
such a huge mess!

Your head is filled with fantasies
and temptations of every kind.
You pretend on the outside. But you've
lost control of your mind.

For your failures—you have
only yourself to blame.
Now's the time to repent—
and call on Jesus' name!

Though your sins be red as scarlet--
they can be washed as white as snow.
Only Jesus can be true peace and
satisfaction to your troubled soul.

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!
