BACK FROM AN ABYSS

BACK FROM AN ABYSS

Three more days and I’m free,

From chajns that had hold of me…

God wiped out claims

On several games

I’ll bend my knee to Him, only!

The abyss in question: Ebay…

With regret for the people betrayed…

Too easy to fall

And spend it all,

My God loves me though He’s dismayed.

For the sake of a good life tasted,

So much money’s been wasted…

Big debts unpaid

The addict laid

Himself and family debt-pasted.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
