Wrestling With Sin A Poem About Sexual Desire Temptation I'm wrestling with sin doing my damnedest not to give in. But I feel my back pinned to the mat knowing that temptation is going to win. My life feels like a chokehold, strangled beneath a force so strong and bold that I've grown tired of attempts to prevent what naturally seems to unfold. In moments of weakness I'm another man - thirsting, yearning to fulfill my body's demands. Oh, how does Mr. Hyde find a way to live under Dr. Jekyll's straight and narrow commands? How do I break free? I know you haven't given up on me, but how do I not give up on myself, so prone to pulls from sin's gravity? Do you understand my dilemma, Lord? Burning with passion, yet unable to unsheathe my sword. My heart longs to do your will but sometimes the cost feels like more than I can afford. Justin Farley
Hello, everyone! I have recently published my first chapbook of Christian poems titled “A Voice in the Wilderness – A Chapbook of Poems about God”. This has been developed and polished over the past six months or so. I am happy with the final product and hope you find encouragement in the poems but also a validation that the spiritual life is not all sunshine and rainbows. We all struggle. We all have periods of questions and/or doubt. But it is the yearning that keeps us coming back for more and allows us to experience joy.
You can purchase either on Amazon or on my own bookstore (it is cheaper and has free shipping on my store) and is available on the Kindle and in paperback.
