Living Lies

Living Lies


College football on Saturday; friends and ice cold beer

A round of shots for all my friends; the crowd erupts with cheers

And all the games watched that day; were chased with spicy hot wings

And haughty talk from vulgar mouths; of what next season brings



And what about those Sunday morns; when these saints have seen no wrong

Itís hallelujah and amen; praise the Lord and so on

Then I realized that that was me; living the worldly life

But not until my secrets revealed; and the truth cut like a knife



O my Lord, what have I done; to bring such pain to anotherís soul

Pretending that I was O so godly; with a heart that beats so cold

Away to the altar I find myself; repenting for a life of ruse

Asking forgiveness for the lies Iíve lived; and the loving kindness I abuse



I havenít seen her to this day; some say they think she died

All I know is my life was changed; when I saw the pain in her eyes

I remembered praying to a merciful God; praying Christís blood on my deeds

Finally realizing for the first time; itís hard to fall from your knees



Now its college football on Saturday; friends and cold ice tea

The opportunity to witness to folks; makes a heart jump with glee

And all the games watched that day; are chased with spicy hot wings

And wonderful talk of a Saviorís love; and the mercy that only God brings



Sober by the grace of God: 1,111 days

This is so wonderful! We all live double lives, we act as the world act in sin and then in Church there is no one holy than us. Thank you brother for showing us the true face we have. We are no more than hypocrites.

Thank you FaithfulSon for your comments. Our lives could be so much better if we would seek God's direction and try to remain within His will, may God's blessings be upon you, Irv
Thank you Blessed, I appreciate your support and encouragement, Jesus came as a servant and we should also seek that role, to God be the glory for we are nothing without Him, blessings be upon you my brother, Irv
