I'M NOT PERFECT, SEEK RIGHTEOUSNESS, SHORT POEM, - A LIFE PERFECT IS NOT POSSIBLE CHRISTIAN LIFE WAY

JESUS MADE US RIGHT WITH GOD BUT NOT PERFECT !!

Lord, I am not perfect. I pray the Christ prayer, the Lord's prayer and read the living scripture but still I am not perfect.

God I seek to live a perfect life for you
  But while trying, I stumble and fall into sin,
It is not that I do not love You Jesus,
  I am filled with shame and separation.

Oh God please help me, for I feel so lost
  Please give instruction to my intellect.
So I understand and will be at peace
  For I try to be perfect but just can't.

Righteousness comes through a belief in Jesus
  And His mighty work on the cross,
Perfection is never obtained but is sought
  By all Christians in an effort to please God.

Our loving God offers us righteousness with Him
  But this righteousness does not perfect us,
Jesus opened the door to God’s mercy
  And for those who believe in Him,
Having their sins covered by His blood,
  But they can still commit sin.

There is a confusion among Christians
  Combining being right with God
And living a life perfect in God’s eyes,
  It is wise to understand the difference,
We try to live in accordance to his desires
  Confess when we sin and keep trying.

Righteousness comes thru belief in Jesus
  And His mighty work on the cross,
Perfection is never obtained but is sought
  By all Christians in an effort to please God.

 THE FRAGILENESS OF LIFE

Sometimes I shudder at the fragileness of life,
  Expected and unforeseen just a moment away;
My mind is filled with uncertainty and fear,
  Could all factors blend into an okay way?

Sometimes I shudder at the hardness of life,
  Where cruel persons seem to win;
Where in the name of business some suffer,
  Where I hope for manly right to begin.

Sometimes I shudder at the coldness of life;
  My stomach reels with a wave of fears,
Into violent throes of worry and prayer;
  While my mind does cry hidden tears.

Sometimes I wonder why life should be a care;
  Where are the carefree, loving events?
We can find them in our memories so pleasing,
  As we think and ponder each line and bent.

Sometimes I wonder why life should be a care;
  There was Mom and Dad who savored their day;
If they made it, cannot we follow their lead?
  Somehow they got us to where we are today.

Oh, where is the middle ground between these two,
  The dead cetainty of the past and the unknown now?
How can we blend these two so we can win?
  Only thru Jesus, can this life be known!

Jesus taught that we would have our crosses to bear,
  There would be no rose garden for us;
Being Christian means He will, our prayers hear,
  For He promised that he would ride on our bus.

So when your mind wants to cry tears;
   When fears give your stomach a turn,
Have faith and call on Jesus so near,
  And throw those cares in the fire to burn.
