God’s Compass

From Psalm 51:3:  “For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.”

Lost soul in the wickedest valleys of life

Needing directions, take away this strife

 

Life’s transgressions mount, God knows them all

Living a life of denial, witnessing an arrogant fall

 

Every day takes one deeper and deeper into sin

Losing awareness, asking where have we been?

 

When born, God knows our sinful ways

Needing God to teach wisdom each day

 

Life continues to carry us on the very same road

Walking and falling, becomes frustrating and cold

 

God delivers His judgement, He feels justified

Viewing our sin-filled cravings, never satisfied

 

Life’s journey demands we find a different route

Using God’s compass, His directions carry clout

 

God brings deliverance, a better means to live

Declaring praise to our Lord, offerings to give

 

Another wayward life takes a detour from the Pit

Cleansing of sin, God’s road creates a better fit

 

God teaches an upright way, follow and trust

Purging all evil, washing white our sinful lust

 

God’s steadfast love delivers a redeeming route

Hearing God’s joy, His compass brings us about

We count on God’s mercy for our past mistakes; we count on God’s love for our present needs; but we count on God’s sovereignty for the future.

From James 4:8:  Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.  Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”

C. S. Lewis Quote

There is but one good; that is God.  Everything else is good when it looks to Him and bad when it turns from Him.

From Psalm 112:7:  “They are not afraid of evil tidings; their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord.”
