Flee youthful lusts

O believer flee youthful lusts,
Be one who in God trusts.
Flee malice and flee pride,
And rather in God’s Word abide.

Flee all the world’s seduction,
Be on who heeds instruction.
Avoid ungodly passions and greed,
Instead abide in Christ to be freed.

O you righteous don’t envy those who live in lust,
For the unrepentant have no hope after turning to dust.
O Sinners give heed to the repentance cry,
Take your steps towards the Lord, do try.

Fret not yourself because of sinners

Fret not yourself because of sinners,
For at Judgement day they won’t be winners.
And about workers of iniquity don’t be envious,
Because their end will be truly devious.

Fret not yourself but trust in God,
For then in the land you will trod.
And you will good things be fed,
Because by the Lord you are lead.

Fret not yourself but in Christ delight,
For by him you can win each spiritual fight.
And God will give you your heart’s desires,
Because your faith in him keeps up and fires.

Flee Temptation

Flee temptation O Believer,
Entertain not the Deceiver.
Why must you give heed,
To any sinful seed?

Flee it like you flee a snake,
Don’t let deal you any heartache.
Why must you even follow,
The darkness vile and hollow?

Flee all sinful imaginations,
Regard them as worthless visions.
Why must you at all cherish,
The things the cause to perish?

Flee and rebuke any spirit of sin,
In Jesus name have your win.
Why must your will get stuck,
To know when to avoid the muck?

Poems Repentance

Sin No More

Sin no more, whether its small or tall,
Lest something worse for you does befall.
Sin no more, even if sinners entice,
Lest you share their punishment for vice.

Sin no more, as sin is finally vain,
Why do people desire eternal pain?
Sin no more, as it strikes in the end,
Why do people towards it bend?

Sin no more, as its a fatal delusion,
Don’t chase after any lustful illusion.
Sin no more, as its faithless unsteady,
Don’t think it’ll keep you heaven ready.

Instead of despairing about the leaders of your state, pray about them

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:1-4)

At times in the world there are leaders who are controversial by what they say and do, while others are a pain by what they do not say nor do. This affects they way of life of people in general. Also, a corrupt or proud king or ruler of the people’s can bring them much despair. However, those in Christ Jesus must not fall in the trap of useless anxiety nor foolish works that only disrupt society.

Instead we must pray in faith to the Lord God to improve the leaders of nation and state. We can also pray the unjust rulers are reigned in by the Lord and changed. You deserve the peace but how would you get it for your country if you don’t do what God expects you to?.

The Lord God is capable to granting wisdom, pray for wisdom in such cases. But do not despair. Remember the Lord God can change the course of nations by changing its leaders and circumstances.

20 Daniel answered and said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. 21 He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; 22 he reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him. (Daniel 2:20-22)

Poems Reflections

Think wisely

When the world’s insane,
Don’t be profane,
When sinners run about,
Stay away from their clout.

Then think not too odd,
But stand up for God.
Win the victory first in your mind,
Leave sinning all behind.

Honour the Lord in your actions,
Pure reflections of your mind’s reactions.
Be diligent, be holy and be brave,
For you serve the Lord who can save.

Speak of Jesus Christ in reverence,
In his worship show no fake deference.
He is the way and is the truth,
Listen to him and bear righteous fruit.

Mediate on the Lord’s commandment day and night,
And see your prosperity rise way above height.
Respect yourself to be wise enough to endure,
For you’re the temple of the Holy Spirit to be kept pure.
