Temptation

A common factor that denotes this walk. Though it’s different for each, its methods are the same. Its seductions are strong, and its lies lead to shame. It’s not temptation if it’s easy to resist. Yet by faith we overcome it.

Remember the feeling
and anguish of soul
When temptation comes 
to shatter your goal.

Remember the pain
and sadness of heart
When progress is stalled;
You're back at the start. 

Remember the lies 
that ring in your ear.
Now you won't fall
when victory's near.

Remember the past--
You were here before--
And the grace you found;
God's mercy in store. 

Remember your hope;
Cast away your sigh.
O joyous salvation
descending from high!
