Children of Mine

Choose Life, BBYCGN

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

Salted sapphire

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!

.

* Verses on my Hubpages: Choose Life!
