Being an Enemy of God

Being an enemy of God
is not worth the price.
I would not enjoy
that sacrifice.
He has no mercy,
nor gives His grace.
He will not allow
sin in any place.
He will not save.
He will not cure.
He will not rescue
anything impure.
God hates sin
and wicked ways.
All who choose evil
eventually pay.
Choose God
and choose to live.
He has mercy and grace
He wants to give.

PS. When I wrote this, I am sure I must have been referring to those who have chosen to definitively be God’s enemy, because God absolutely saves, cures, and rescues, and has an endless supply of mercy and grace!

Repented and Turned

So young and innocent, she has no clue.
What others will teach, she will do.
Right or wrong, pure or filth.
They pass on the pleasure that brings guilt.
No examples to show otherwise.
Every one is good in their own eyes
The sins are handed down to repeat.
She had not heard of who she’d meet.
Knelt at the altar to wait for someone else,
She is approached and told of a saving help.
Her eyes were opened, her heart broken
To hear of the love and tragedy spoken.
Jesus had came and died for her.
He loved her in spite of her.
Revealing her false innocence and wicked ways,
He teaches truth and the importance to obey.
Falling in love and falling in line,
He lifts her pen and has her write.
It will help her grow. It will help her learn.
She has repented. She has turned.
