I stagger along, as the heat contends,

To jolt me to the floor.

Down for the count cannot get up,

Condition I deplore!



One factor only keeps me going,

This I will not give in!

Continued fellowship with my Lord,

This alone keeps me from sin!



Continued fellowship is the key!

Unlocks the gate to that city!

Quit or give in, the besetting sin!

Result cannot be pretty.



Turn my back on the Christ who gives peace?

Walk away from the cross?

Watch Him suffering there as I leave?

Confusion, only my loss!



I am one that He died for, you know.

Yes, I take is personally!

My name written there on that cross!

I belong there not He!



Not just mine but the sins of the world!

Oh, yes!  He died for you!

Admit to sinning!  You might as well,

For you know it is true!



This sinless Christ alone could atone!

For the sins of the world!

God, the Father, punished His son!

The sinless One in control!



“For God so loved the world, that He gave

His only Son,” to die!

Can you imagine His broken heart?

Sinners death crucified?



Angels gathered on that black day,

Nameless sorrow they knew!

Countless number, they hid the sun!

Moaning, like, thunder grew!



“Deliver!”  They screamed thunderously,

“No!”  God’s voice, like, silencing!

The quiet then in that blackest of days,

Provision balancing!



Accept or reject, the choice is ours,

Hell so permanent,

Heaven, our suffering for just a moment,

Wisdom’s discernment!



Thunder continues from time to time,

God and the Angels deplore,

The condition of men as they sin,

And crucify as before!

      The very heart of your writing while appearing reasonable at first, did not settle perfectly with me after sometime. Somewhere throughout the sentences you actually managed to make me a believer but only for a while. I still have a problem with your leaps in logic and one might do well to help fill in those breaks. In the event that you can accomplish that, I will undoubtedly end up being fascinated.
