Is Sin Pulling You Down

Is Sin Pulling You Down?

God knows it's easy to get 
discouraged and upset.
When sin is pulling you down... 
 But you can't escape "just yet."

Perhaps you tried "everything," 
yet don't know what else to do.
Often wondering if there's "anyone" 
who can "help you through."

There’s things you've done,  
 that you asked God to forgive. 
Yet struggle with this
 each day you live.

You go to church and 
put on a big "smile."
Yet wonder if living is 
"worth the while."

You have sought prayer
 time and time again.
And yet constantly struggle 
with this habitual sin.

Many times you've tried to  
call on Jesus' name.
Yet find yourself in another
 sin of "guilt and shame."

Jesus is here now! 
He wants you to know.
Every sin in your life,  
you must completely let go.

Start today by not thinking of things 
done in the past.
Come to Jesus now!  He'll give you
 true joy that will LAST!

Allow God to bring to your life 
the needed victory now!
He'll make you a brand new person! 
 And HOW!
