Are You Handcuffed to Sin?

Are You “Handcuffed” to Sin?


Many lives have been handcuffed by sin!

They’re in a struggle, but they’ll never win!


So many are facing life changing addictions…

And bring into their lives

unneeded afflictions!


The shackles of sin have held them as a slave.

Their soul, for sin’s dominion,

is what they gave!


Many have cried; “Lord, why did I do it?”

They were given a chance in life, but blew it!


Jesus stands knocking at your heart’s door!

He brings true love and freedom!

 And much more!


The handcuffs of sin,

 can be removed in an instant!

Won’t you give Jesus your life?

And a total commitment?


He can bring hope and a life

 changing restoration.

Through Christ, you can be

 a brand new creation!


He can do right now, what no other

 power can do!

The choice is yours!  What will you do?

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!
