Chain reaction

There are many great testimonies out there of people who have left their homosexual life for Jesus.  I was watching one such testimony and he was talking about lust, pride and idolatry which struck a chord with me, so that’s how this poem was born.

Anything that gets in the way of looking at God is to be condemned. 

Whether lust, pride or idolatry

They all lead to sinful actions

A chain reaction

A fractured hope

Gradually the light grows dim unless we pick up our cross and follow him.

Born gay, born this way?

My weakness, my refusal to take control

Refusal to let go of lustful thoughts

Of pride in my identity, that new found entity of my youth

Pride in not conforming

A pride in sinful living

Misguided enjoyment of being different

Declining to remove the idol of a sexual lifestyle

Rejecting the message of a fertile future, a smoother path

A hope of peace and rest at last

God and homosexuality do not blend

He died on the Cross to mend the gaping wounds and agonising pain that claims the minds of those that fail to surrender to his love

To relieve the burden of their shame, who fail to call out his name to be saved

So here’s the scoop, the latest news

You are not alone…

Jesus has shown again and again that he walks with us and takes our pain

He does it all for us.

Just bow your head and ask his forgiveness,


Cry out to God

He has clearly proclaimed that he who loses his life for God, will find themselves once more

He will take it all away, a promise that He will pave the way

He strengthens and fortifies his children

He loves you

You are his special creation.
