DECISIONS: Blood On The Scale!

The Lord Blessed Me With Life!
Sin Cursed Me With Strife!

The Lord Blesses Me With Hope!
Sin Curses Me With Reasons Not To Cope!

The Lord Leads Me Along The Narrow Way!
Sin Stalks Me Encouraging Me From The Way To Stray!

The Lord IS My Light!
Sin Needles Me To Trust My Eyesight!

The Lord Says He Has Made A Home Far Away!
Sin Says Forget Home!  Let's Play and Be Gay!

The Lord Gives Me Grace To In The Battle Stand!
Sin Touts The Party And Hot Happenings Band!

The Lord Encourages Me In My Walk With Kingdom Talk!
Sin Sets Out Challenges To Make Me Balk In My Walk!


The Lord Says:


"Come Unto Me!
All Your Needs Will Be Met! "


Sin Says:


"Forget Needs!
It's The Wants! Fret! Fret!"


I Got Out My Scale
The One Provided By Mercy and Grace
AND
It Was So Used and Battered
That
In The Polished Shine
I Could See
My Happy
Sad
Needy
Greedy
Sorrowful
Hopeful
Seeking God
Found Jesus
Face!

In That Polished Scale Mirror
Stood A Bright Spot -
Blood Red
Next To A Living Lamb
Most Assuredly
Having Been Bled Dead
BUT
Pointing To Himself
AND
Calling Himself The Eternal Son of Man
AND
Calling To Himself
All
The Sons of  Fallen Man!

The Appeal Is Quite Gentle!
The Caller Gentle ... Real!
The Offer Salvation
Hope Eternal
AND
No More Separating Veil!

I Made My Decision!
My Decision Was Is Uncoerced!
But, Oh, Lord Almighty
Sin Is Standing
At The Ready - Blowing
Up In My Face!


*** Decisions! Decisions! ***
Religions!
Collisions!
Trust God For Direction
AND
Depend On Him For Provision!
Trust In God 
Always
When You Make Your
*** Decisions! Decisions! ***


I Trust God
To Point Direct My Traffic On My Way!
I Pray To The Living God
Night and Day
At Work and At Play!
I Know Not What
Tomorrow For Me Holds
BUT
I Know The God Who Has It All
In His Loving Control!

My Hands May Shake!
My Eyeballs May Sweat
BUT
As Long As I Obey and
Honor God
Sin Loses
AND
The Victory Crown
Will Soon Be Placed
Upon The Head
Of This 
The Holy King's 
Blessed Beloved Pet!




Get Thee Behind Me Satan!
