I gave you my heart and for $18.99 you vowed to wedlock. With a closet so full of skeletons, you venture out, leaving a trail of unscrupulous documents that lead us all to question. So on a bright Friday morning, you jump into your car and run to the pastor’s office. Committing to God, you try to start over. Singing in the choir will not pardon the guilt from a history book. A pretty smile might ward off a congregation but God tallies the sequence of events. Your heart pounds. Is it possible to hide from the horrific confrontation?
Born once more, you change your name. You set up home and trim the thorns. Playing make believe, life seems grand, but it’s plagued; your health and spirit are contaminated from the past.
Miles away from the scene of the crime, no one knew the life you lead. But the lies lay dormant like the winter flowers covered by the recent snow. I find myself in a quandary deciding my next move. I turn to God, the only solution to engrave my soul against your satanic ways. To think I loved you and you didn’t care. A con job of a marriage; what a horrible fright!
Sad these stories bear false witnesses as the innocent pays the price. Meanwhile, the guilty laugh about it and heartless memories are thrown in the trash. Years of existence, down the drain. It’s too late. You walk away thanking God, for He never anoints a relationship who’s posterity is blemished.
It’s not just here but around the world that deceiving is a way of life. It seems we need a resume before we ever marry. A rap sheet too if you don’t mind….. I’d like to know where you’ve been – if it’s all the same to you.
Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips and harbors deceit in his heart (Proverbs 26:24)
Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man, but afterward his mouth will be full of gravel. (Proverbs 20:17)
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers. (Proverbs 6: 16-19)
