Run away or Repent?

every step we take

is toward or away

from our Living Water

our magnificent Creator

when we sin

our heart becomes heavy

like in the beginning

before we accepted Christ as King

any sin

is abomination

to Him

we can hide

we can justify in pride

we can run

to another town

like Jonah

or we can seek His holy face

knowing our place

at His feet

as tears of guilt meet

His toes

we pour the woes

we ask for His help

His power to engulf

our dirty souls

that we may follow Him wherever He goes

that our hearts be rekindled

in Christ’s love, unbridled


In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now He commands all people everywhere to repent (Acts 17:30).
