Make Sure Your Sin Will FindYouOut

Make Sure Your Sin Will Find You Out!


Lately, I’ve been reading scripture

 and thinking about…

The verse that reads; “make sure your

 sin will find you out!”


Just the other day… I can

 remember the look on his face.

Yet another person has fallen

 in a moment of disgrace…


I’ve been guilty of this… 

Perhaps thousands of times…

Not being careful of what

enters my mind…


The temptations...  The traps that ensnare so many…

They’re out there.  And believe me…

 They are plenty!


My Lord… I’m guilty too…  

And have brought you shame…

So I come to you now and humbly call on your name…


That which seems so ”wonderful” and “innocent…”

Can quickly unfold and cause quite an embarrassment!


Please help me dear Lord to

 fall in love with YOU!

And live the way a Christian ought to do!


I don’t want to take a chance

 and fall on my face.

And bring to you and my family

 a moment of disgrace…


There needs to be a daily 

 reading of your word…

Your voice in my life…Needs to once again be heard!


Thank you Lord for cleansing me throughout…

And teaching me what following you is all about!


You are the very reason why I’m here…

It’s only in you that my life can be secure!


You’ve given me hope when there’s none to be found…

And have planted my life on a solid ground!

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!
