I'M NOT PERFECT, SEEK RIGHTEOUSNESS, SHORT POEM, - A LIFE PERFECT IS NOT POSSIBLE CHRISTIAN LIFE WAY
Lord, I am not perfect. I pray the Christ prayer, the
Lord's prayer and read the living scripture but still I am not perfect.
God I seek to live a perfect life for
But while trying, I stumble and fall into sin,
It is not that I do not love You Jesus,
I am filled with shame and separation.
Oh God please help me, for I feel so lost
Please give instruction
to my intellect.
So I understand and will be at peace
For I try to be perfect but just can't.
Righteousness comes through a belief in
And His mighty work on the cross,
Perfection is never obtained but is sought
Christians in an effort to please God.
Our loving God offers us righteousness with Him
But this righteousness
does not perfect us,
Jesus opened the door to God’s mercy
And for those who believe in Him,
their sins covered by His blood,
But they can still commit sin.
There is a confusion among Christians
Combining being right with God
And living a life perfect in God’s eyes,
It is wise to
understand the difference,
We try to live in accordance to his desires
Confess when we sin and keep trying.
Righteousness comes thru belief in Jesus
And His mighty work on the cross,
Perfection is never
obtained but is sought
By all Christians in an effort to please God.

FRAGILENESS OF LIFE
Sometimes I shudder at the fragileness of life,
Expected and unforeseen just a moment away;
My mind is filled with uncertainty and fear,
Could all factors blend into an okay way?
Sometimes I shudder at the hardness of life,
Where cruel persons seem to win;
Where in the name of business some suffer,
Where I hope for manly right to begin.
Sometimes I shudder
at the coldness of life;
My stomach reels with a wave of fears,
violent throes of worry and prayer;
While my mind does cry hidden tears.
Sometimes I wonder why life should be a care;
Where are the carefree, loving events?
We can find them in our memories so pleasing,
As we think and ponder each line and bent.
I wonder why life should be a care;
There was Mom and Dad who savored their day;
they made it, cannot we follow their lead?
Somehow they got us to where we are today.
Oh, where is the middle ground between these two,
The dead cetainty of the past and the unknown now?
How can we blend these two so we can win?
Only thru Jesus, can this life be known!
that we would have our crosses to bear,
There would be no rose garden for us;
Christian means He will, our prayers hear,
For He promised that he would ride on our bus.
your mind wants to cry tears;
When fears give your stomach a turn,
faith and call on Jesus so near,
And throw those cares in the fire to burn.

Against you and need
I have a sin addiction of (name the sin)
And have tried not to sin but yet sin.
I cannot overcome temptations to sin
Without your help, so please hear me
Have mercy on my soul and
And I will avoid circumstances leading to sin.
Please heal me outright so I don't sin,
If not outright send me the help I need
To live a life pleasing to you my God
I ask this Father God, in the
name of Jesus.
