Step right up
make your choice
Cast the deciding vote

Though Paul reveals
in Ephesians one
that as a follower of Christ
you are whole
seated in heavenly places
and an fellow heir
of every spiritual blessing
in the heavenly realm,
each moment,
every circumstance,
provides you with
a choice
A choice to use
your deciding vote
and concur
with one of two voices:

The Father
or
the enemy of your soul

Who garners your
agreement today?

Your sick?
Your tired?
Maybe your
sick and tired
of life
of trying
of hoping...

Thatís how you feel
human
limited
prone to self service

I Am your Healer
I Am your Refuge
When you are weak
I Am strong

Thatís your Fatherís voice
trustworthy
faithful
only good

Youíre done
Youíll never change
You donít have
to take this anymore

Thatís the voice of
the enemy
liar
stealer
defeated one

So step right up
open your mouth
Use the most powerful
weapon in your arsenal

your choice
your voice
your tongue
the power of life
confessing who
you are
in HIM

victorious
overcomer
apple of His eye
beloved
friend
pure
and
forgiven

or

your choice
your voice
your tongue
the power of death
confessing who
you are
in him

defeated
loser
god-forsaken
judged
filthy
and
a hostage to
your sin

Step right up
make your choice
Cast the deciding vote

I'm fairly new to writing of this style (a sort of poetry) so I may not be the best to comment.

Having said that, although i found it a challenge to follow in sections, I could clearly sense the main message and enjoyed the way it came across. I like that you drove home that our choices are really about whether we "agree" with God or the evil one. A nice perspective to approach it from.

Thanks!

Good job with the topic. Nicely told, and great message. I enjoyed this!
God Bless~

Thank you for writing this. I was struggling with this very battle just earlier tonight, and am so very pleased for the reminder that I am victorious in Christ, but I must make the choice.

Well done, and thank you again.

I, like Hiram, had difficulty with the 'flow' of some of the verses, but some of the other verses were brilliantly laid out, and I especially loved these:

"victorious
overcomer
apple of His eye
beloved
friend
pure
and
forgiven

and


defeated
loser
god-forsaken
judged
filthy
and
a hostage to
your sin"

Those two verses were my favorite becaause they rolled through my mind smoothly, and with a power that built upon itself, and stuck to my ribs.

Overall message was fantastic.

Very interesting writing. Kept my interest. Nice job.
Jan Chapman01/31/12
Wonderful! I am very ignorant of poetry but the part that Theresa selected was my favorite as well. The title was appropriate and the message was conveyed accordingly.
Rachel Burkum01/31/12
Though sometimes I had a bit of trouble finding the rhythm, once I got into it, I found the purpose of your words and enjoyed it.

I think in a couple places "your" should have been "you're" maybe?

Creative entry with a very good point!
