Knowing our sinful nature and God’s just ways,
makes it scary to have to live for those unwanted days.
One can know how loving and merciful God is,
but one also knows that mighty vengeance of His.
The soul is so ready to love and revere God,
but the carnal flesh simply is not.
Knowing that sin brings justified discipline,
makes one afraid of the world and body we’re stuck in,
but God sends the Comforter to remind
that God loves us at all times.
And while He can not tolerate sin in us,
He loved us enough to send Jesus.
We must trust that God knows what He’s doing.
He’s not throwing us away, he is pursuing.
Like a child/parent relationship, we have a bond.
His parental love will always carry on.
