FORGIVE

For when Your Sacrifice is not enough
and desire longs for worldly stuff

when the seat of the throne is occupied
by things, and not the One Who died

when the world rings and the answer is “yes”
and stumbling slumps to effortless

when confidence overcomes common sense
ignoring bounds of humanness  

and self-reliance attempts to defy
as pride deceives, “ the king is I”

Forgive me for countless rash flirts with sin
while shunning the Spirit within

If I lie or wallow it's all the same
all bring shame to Your blessed Name

disregarding the fact sin leads to death
separating God from myself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I Corinthians 10:13 [NCV]
The only temptation that has come to you
is that which everyone has. But you can
trust God, Who will not permit you to be
tempted more than you can stand. But
when you are tempted, He will also give
you a way to escape so that you will be
able to stand it.
