Hope In A Moment

I gravitate toward God
It is natural for me,
Sometimes I also
Wallow in the murk;
Because sin haunts me.

My mouth speaks prayers,
Gratitude, and praise,
Sometimes I curse
Like someone lost;
Sin tossed on the sea.

I believe I am saved,
Born again, a Christian,
Sometimes I worry
I am wrong, deceived;
His Spirit is not in me.

Without His grace
Nothing would I be;
Sometimes I wonder
If Jesus truly meant
Salvation for me.

I am a human bundle
Of troublesome contradictions;
Sometimes my faith
Lifts my soul so I see Christ,
In eternity, is waiting for me.

    This one is so good, right on theologically! I grew up believing that any little sin would cause the loss of salvation. Such fear, even as a small child! Thank God for true Biblical teaching & the Spirit leading me to it. Yes, we all still sin & always will fail in areas while in this body, but one day we will be changed!   Meantime, grace, grace & more grace from the Father! And we have an instant solution for sin ~ 1 John 1:9 ~ when we confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin(s) He forgives & cleanses so our fellowship is restored &we can move on! Sharing the Word is such an encouragement, I’m glad we have fellowship with the Father & with His Son & wit each other because of HIs work o our behalf!glenda

    My apology for the garbled forward below my comments. I sent my post as an email reply & didn’t realize it would post in this fashion. Have been unable to Edit or Remove/Re-post!

    Love your writing & pics, JoAnn! Keep up the good work!
