As parents, we don’t want our children to mimic our mistakes, but history often repeats itself. Maturation means the blessed saturation of God’s wisdom upon our lives. We can change the course of yesteryear thru the rebirth of living a better example. He makes all things new again!
Children of Mine
holds ever fast
as hearts steep
into wells of past;
Suffer not, dear children,
these wailing sounds,
as we wrestle ourselves
to ancient grounds.
In His mercy, ancient grounds of sin are no longer remembered by God. But sometimes our past misdeeds still haunt our thoughts.
Do not surrender yourselves
to earth’s deadly lust,
nor suffocate underneath
her barren dust.
Let not our transgressions
rest upon your heads;
but sleep in peace
beneath the scarlet, He bled.
In our godly maturity, we loathe our past transgressions. We want our children to carry out better choices.
Smolder not to ash
as we, ourselves, deserve;
but tread the linear path,
resisting the wide curve.
Take not to heart
the inferno beds
we have made,
but choose Life
through Jesus Christ
which will never fade!
Upon our sincere request, Jesus forgives us. We must also forgive ourselves.

Children of Mine
Salted drops hold fast
as hearts dip into wells of past;
suffer not, dear children, these wailing sounds,
as we wrestle ourselves to ancient grounds.
Let not our sins rest upon your heads;
but sleep beneath the scarlet, he bled.
Do not hand yourselves over to earth’s deadly lust,
nor get buried beneath her barren dust.
Burn not to ash as we deserve;
tread the straight path, resisting the wide curve.
Take not to the fire the beds we have made,
but choose Life through Jesus Christ that will never fade!
