Turmoil Or Blessing

Longing for peace and God's blessing,
But dabble in sin on the side?
Desiring His presence, the sense of His love,
And finding just turmoil inside?

We fail to remember God can't abide sin,
It separates and it divides,
Making a choice on the course that we take,
For His path His strength He'll provide.

We're never alone when we choose God's path
Though it is not easy but hard,
Moment by moment as we look to Him
From sin He will constantly guard.


"As long as you did what you felt like doing, ignoring God, you didn't have to bother with right thinking or right living, or right anything for that matter. But do you call that a free life? What did you get out of it? Nothing you're proud of now. Where did it get you? A dead end.

But now that you've found you don't have to listen to sin tell you what to do, and have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more of life on the way! Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God's gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master." Romans 6:20-23 (The Message)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
