The Struggle

The cost of sin is life
against which we strive.
Both life, and with it sin,
the struggle here within.

Salvation from shackles and chains,
in Christ only freedom remains.
But with chains we continue to play,
trying to make white out of justified grey.

Greater joy remains, yet, for those,
where love and obedience grows.
White fields and orchards ripe,
in Heaven, our greatest delight.


To not know and continue walking
resting on God’s living Word, is
unsustainable in my own strength.
Seeking the joy of obedience,
the Glory of God shines bright.
In the dark we know he is leading: we strive to
never waver off the straight path before us,
God is working out His perfect will.
