Wickedness

 

Wickedness
By Christine Hare Tate

The drama that surrounds us
can do a person in…
Chaos on a global scale
is the prime result of sin.

Lack of true conviction
becomes an open door
for the crafty enemy
to corrupt men to the core.

Injustice seems to escalate
and villains are more smug,
believing their dirty deeds
can be swept under the rug!

Corruption in high places
is as common as the cold,
and rampant are the lies
that we are being told.

Spinning evil webs
is so prevalent today…
how easy for a country
to ignore the Lord and stray.

What is the solution
as far as sinning goes?
Repentance from the head
down to the tippy toes!

Tho God is longsuffering
and on Him we can depend;
be assured He’ll not forever
with wickedness contend.

Only Jesus can convert
and transform the hearts of men,
and illuminate their spirits
to make them whole again.

 ‘The high and lofty one who inhabits eternity, the Holy One, says this: I live in that high and holy place where those with contrite, humble spirits dwell; and I refresh the humble and give new courage to those with repentant hearts. But those who still reject me are like the restless sea, which is never still, but always churns up mire and dirt.
There is no peace, says my God, for them!’
[Isaiah 57:15,20-21]
