Are You Hiding a Secret Sin?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Are You Hiding A “Secret” Sin?


Have you been trying to hide a “secret” sin?

In this effort, is it causing trouble within?


Perhaps you’re not that ashamed of it.

But you have only yourself to blame for it!


You’ve read about others on t.v. and get confused.

It’ll never happen to me.” 

“I’m not going to lose!”


But, as you get more tangled  and “inner-twined.”

You have more of a lost and confused mind.


This sin that you think can’t “pull you down.”

You’ve tried.  But victory over this, can’t be found!


Christ tells us there’s a

choice to be made!

It’s either freedom from this,

or being it’s slave!


No matter how much you may try to “sweep it.”

You’re only going to be miserable, if you keep it!


Give it to Jesus!  Surrender everything to him!

He has the power to destroy the grip of sin!


Only he has the awesome power and ability.

To bring to your life freedom and stability!


Don’t allow this “secret sin”  to destroy your soul!

Be free in Christ!  He can 100% make you whole!


Now is the time to come to him in confession!

So his love, not your sin,

will be your obsession!

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!
