What's Done in Secret Will Come Out

What’s Done In Secret…

Will Come Out In The Open!


I’ve read God’s word, and it’s clearly spoken…

What’s done in secret…  Will come out in the open!


I’ve been guilty of this, too many times!

I never thought of it, to really be a “crime?”


“Nobody’s watching” was the thought pondered…

As my mind began to “explore and wander.”


It didn’t take long for my life to go “off course.”

By a powerful wind of temptation’s force!


No matter how many times I took time to pray…

This “secret” held on, and wouldn’t go away!


I went to church on Sunday and prayed and cried.

This “secret” remained, no matter how hard I tried!


God told me, I was to give up what surrounded me!

This was hard to do, but God was there to help me!


Many things I thought I needed, to give me pleasure…

Didn’t fulfill the love that God gave! An eternal treasure!


As each day passes on…  I want to humbly confess…

I’m giving my life to God!  He’ll take care of the rest!


May the Lord Jesus stir a deep passion within…

May it be my desire to be more like HIM!


God is the God of yesterday, today and tomorrow!

I’ve no secrets with him!  No more shame or sorrow!


Jesus is the Lord of lords! And the King of kings!

He’s my lord and savior!  My everything!

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!
