The Price Of Eternity

Nothing is worth the price of eternity,
Nothing too tempting, too strong.
It's simply too costly, the price that I pay,
The longings I feel are so wrong.

I know in my mind, but I feel in my heart,
I come for Your help on my knees.
So hold me, please hold me, and open Your arms,
And listen once more to my pleas.

The enemy knows just where to attack me,
He knows on my own I am weak,
And so, oh my Father, I come once again,
For Your strength I constantly seek.

Without You I'll fail and Satan prevail,
This battle must be overcome.
Eternity's calling, I fear I am falling
To lies and my feelings succumb.

For strength I am pleading and Your Word agreeing,
For Your sweet deliverance I pray.
Your promise I'm claiming, for heaven I'm aiming,
Don't let me Your mercy betray.

"The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations." II Peter 2:9a (KJV)

Aloha, I enjoyed visiting your sight and reading the various poetry. Keep up the gift of words lifting up the name of the Lord and blessing the hearts who come to resd them.

Thank you so much for these comments. It is my prayer that whatever the Lord places in my heart will touch and encourage others.

I would love for someone to interpret the second comment for me. It always touches my heart that others read and then take the time to comment so I really would like to know what is said. Thank you.

The 2nd comment was spam. I scrolled over the last line which looked like a row of dots but was an active link, and each dot went to a different spam website. I removed the post.

Thanks, Kathryn, we certainly don't need any more "spam" in our lives, do we?
