Consequences “You will bear the consequences of your lewdness and your detestable practices, declares the LORD.” Ezek 16:58 NIV When we fail to obey We suffer the consequences Initially feel nothings changed Until to the surface comes the balances There’s not anything we say or do That doesn’t have consequences Heaven records all that happens Knows all our nuances. Sin can be enjoyable But for a season The consequences set in When with sin we bargain God has His laws That cover all nature Every human being And every living creature. When we choose to walk Contrary to God’s mighty laws We’ll always find consequences To the surface comes flaws But when we choose obedience Choose to walk in God’s way We find there is freedom But the consequences don’t go away. For the Consequences of obedience Are wisdom and peace in our Lord. Obedience God exchanges For a great peace reward. Forever must be our focus Not the fleeting things of earth. This life’s a poor exchange For the eternity God unearths. Copyright © 2007-2012 Maureen LeFanue
