The Scales Of Life



My life was placed on The Balances!
I got me a big surprise!
I thought that I was a Christian
But I was living a big lie!

First, My Life was one sided - No Jesus!
Nowhere Him could I see!
Then ... Life balanced... perfectly!
There was Jesus and me: fifty-fifty!

"Impossible!" I said.

No good life I have led!
Something is all out of wack!
If I am following Jesus The Christ
How come Sin and Self are heavy on my back?

"Unload the scales!"

"Unload the scales?"

"Yes!
You haven't given yourself away!
You're your own god!
You're listening to The Fraud
And The iGod and The Lord 
Are packed in the same pod!"

My Lying Life laid listlessly
Loading me down with Carnality!
Jesus and Me?
Best Buds!
Company!
Who needed a God
When I totally had ... Me?!

Oh, The Shame of Discovery!
Oh, The Sorrow!
Such Pain!
Such Strife!
So, I put Life under The Knife!

And ... this is what happened at The Scales of Life:

I TOSSED into The Jesus Side of The Scale -

Self
Self-Aggrandizement
Self-Actualization
Self-Satisfaction
iOwn
iOwe Allegiance To XYZ & ABC for 1, 2, 3
Worry
Cross and Blood Nails
Petty Distractions
Grand Escapades
Lusting and Lying
Base Friends
Licentious Serenades
Disbelief
Unbelief
Stealing and Goads
Mini Gods
False gods
Demons and Toads
Those Frogs that Masquerade
As Friends in White Clothes
But are #AmbassadorsForSatan
Sharing out False Gold!

I TOOK from The Jesus Side of The Scales -

Hope
Confession
Repentance
Jesus Blood Saves
Salvation
Redemption
New Life
Be Ye Saved
Grace
Mercy
Self-sacrifice
Heaven in A Few Days
Comfort
Caring
Cast Away Your Fear
Trusting and
Blessings
Give God Your Days
Desire Of The Ages
Glory To Be Gained
Obedience
Faithfulness and
Sing to Him Praise!

And then ... I Beheld The Scales of My New Life -

I was High in The Air!
Jesus was bigger than Life' n Strife!
I had severed Earthly Ties and now despised
The Lying Distraction eloquently called
Best and Fulfilled Life!

My Life is My Own
And I have it Disowned!
I have given it to Jesus
For it He Atoned!

So, Satan, don't call Me
In your dulcet tones!
#JesusHasGotMeCovered!
You have been dethroned!

The Best Life

of

The Saints of God

is

The Coming Attraction!
