Something Is Wrong

Post  Irv Everett on Wed 08 Apr 2009, 2:51 pm

Something Is Wrong



O that I could walk in grace and in that mercy of the Lord

That I could let go of this world and chance my life aboard

That I might feel that wonderful peace that others tell me about

That I could live that spirit-filled life and turn this old one out



I know there is something wrong, my being tell me so

But I am much, much too afraid to let my old life go

Iím afraid of giving in and afraid of the truth Iíve heard

But I know there is something wrong; my heart pulls me to Godís Word



O that I could walk in that light, in that Presents meant for generations

That I might let go of this world and enter Godís salvation

For if I know of Godís wonderful gift; of His Sonís death for my soul

Why do I hold to the things of this world; instead of letting go?

Dear Irv

Thank you for this awesome poem and I must admit that Fenny and you make me read poems and I enjoy them. This is so true that God in His love for us gave His best for us and He keeps all the doors open for us so that we may repent and submit our lives to Him.
Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it, whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left." (Isaiah 30:21)
I would like to share a story here, although it is little out of context but it talks of our attitudes towards the love and mercy of God who is always willing to welcome us as we are.

I was recently called by a family for a prayer. They were facing some tough times and they called me to their house. The lady and her husband told me that God never listens to prayers but they are willing to use my prayers.

I told them that God always listens to our prayers and answers them too. Then I asked them how long have they been praying for the solution. They said, they are too busy so they do not pray.

I told them if they do not pray then how do they know that God never answers the prayers. Isn't it amazing how we behave towards the mercy, kindness and love of Heavenly Father. God is so merciful and loving that He not only forgive our sins but also forgets our past lives.

God bless you and thank you
