Here I am Lord

A while back, I wrote the post “Falling into the Trap of Deception” about the serpent deceiving Eve. This poem is based on this study of Genesis 3.

Step Ahead

The lie was believed
And Eve was deceived
Giving in to temptation
And the need for salvation

The devil would clap
For the falling into the trap
For humanity was led astray
And it was not a good day

Many blame others
Or God for troubles
Suffering and pain
And a whole lot of strain

Hiding from God
Hard times get broad
But God seeks after us
The cross our big plus

Providing the way to victory
To seize what’s contradictory
From the human condition
By fulfilling a mission

Because of the Savior
There is a change in behavior
Following where He leads
And doing good deeds

Accepting the truth
And teaching our youth
Learning His ways
And giving Him praise

Things fall into place
Because of His grace
Life is again restored
Here I am Lord
