The man, whom I do not know,

Went where it’s inadvisable to go…

Addiction re-established

The flesh was famished,

And didn’t want anyone to know.

The man had a conscience within,

Starting to convict him…



Drawing him back out again.

He gradually lost interest,

As the Spirit did insist…

God’s love directed

He was safe and elected

By faith he could return to forgiveness.

It wasn’t his doing at all,

But God’s gentle urging  since the Fall…

His longings grew less

Rediscovered holiness,

Until his lust wasn’t enthralled.

Confessed and repented of the crime,

Remembered the temptations on line…

A little wiser

Knowing his Supervisor,

Wouldn’t give him the “You blew it Charley” line!
