 Re: Stop Sinning!

A confession, a reality ... a plea

Derived out of and over the course of a number of days. It's disjointed and mixed up, may the Lord unravel it if it is to be of any benefit.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Two things
I have learned
Nothing more grand
More inarticulate
More precious

Than the Lords Presence

Nothing more grievous
Nor diabolical
Nor crushing
Than to grieve
The Holy Spirit
And to feel

His absence

In both these
Past feelings
And emotions
And all rationale
But not bereft of any of them

It hurts more
Than the conscience knows
Though it does know
Knows in part

Why should I grieve God?
Why?
I have no recourse
No other to blame

Oh my repentance is pure
And my shame is pain
I have that which is sown
And a resolve that even
Needed repentance of

What is it you say
That brought forth,
Just this;

"It's not My will"

And I purposed to
Not obey
And went my own way

Could wish to speak
To what obedience is
How it has been turned
And abused
And laid waste

Yet it is
Breaking
Of a heart
Taken
And relinquished

And

More so
Far more so
The One who
Who came
And gave
And bled
And
Died

Oh wicked heart of man
To turn and grieve the heart of God

And so I purposed
In my sorrow
To never again do this thing
And heard myself say

"Am I liar? Surely I will again ...

... Lord"

And it stunned me.
"Shall I purpose in my heart...
To presume such a thing?"

Oh be it far from me!
It is the scourge of this hour
To presume upon God
To deny
A Holy life
To cease striving to be
Perfect,
As thy Father is perfect.

What is tomorrow's trouble
And yesterdays past
That has today's bearing
Before Thee?

And just as well
Will the Lord have mercy?
Faithful to forgive all manners
On a confession
And a turning away
And a turning towards
With brokenness and a contrite
Spirit
And
Truth

Surely it is so
And surely we oft
Latch unto this promise
Far too easily
Turn from conviction
And make light of it
In the name of
Getting on with it.

And my soul screams
No!

It is not so.
The right verse
At the wrong time

Have been made
To feel the pain
Of my lone decision
Let not the man
State, "Not so hard
on thyself, brother"
To which only recourse is;

"[i]Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God...

But those that be of men.[/i]"

Shall I or we dictate
The Lord's dealings?
Or assuage our guilt
Lightly?

It is no time for
Questions of eternal security
Rather of breach
Upon it

Such rubbish
This world's comfort
And it's counterfeit
Pain killers
Such has the saints
Bought into

No broken
Devastation
No acknowledgment
Of separation
That your sins
Have brought you

Tell my soul
It is not so

That there is no
Breach
When I know
A leaving
To ones own
Devices

Cast back upon
Mine own way
Cast out of His Presence
Need no explanation of
"Apart from Me"
"You can do nothing"

Psa 42:2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

Forget the prose
Let me speak freely
From a broken heart
And with all the raw sincerity I can muster

Do not come to this place of torment
Be it only a taste of an ultimate desperation.
Truly hell is this
This breach
This denial
Left to your own
Devices


I have gone back on my face before the Lord
To wrestle with myself over my sorry state
And the murmurings within;
"Shall I doll out and determine
My own punishment"?
Oh for a true silence
Before you!

"It's not My will"

I heard You loud and clearly
That I never forget this moment
And never again deny Thee

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Stop your wallowing
And play the man"

"Rise up"

"Confess your sin openly before the world"

And hear I thereby do.

I have sinned against Thee and Thee alone
And am staggered and tremble at these words
I repent in dust and ashes
And await Your righteous decision

Oh forgive me ...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

[i]Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.[/i]
Jer 13:16

Woe unto the world because of offences!


... for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee,
Cut them off,
And cast them from thee:

It is better
For thee to enter into life
Halt or maimed,
Rather than having two hands
Or two feet
To be cast into everlasting fire.

And if thine eye
Offend thee,
Pluck it out,
And cast it from thee:

It is better for thee
To enter into life with one eye,
Rather than having two eyes
To be cast into hell fire.

Eph 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

Grieve not!

What shall we say then?
Shall we continue in sin,
That grace may abound?

God forbid!

How shall we,
That are dead to sin,
Live any longer therein?

Let this be warning
Look past the fool
And his many words

Take heed that you find this not lightly
And take your sin with utmost sincerity
Deny the easy way out
And the quick remedy

Grieve not...

And give heed
When you hear

"It's not My will"
