Can I Share What I See

Can I Share What I See

As I look at you, there is something different that I see.

It is not just a fault or a bad habit,

But sin lurking deep underneath.

A desire to rebel and run free

In the darkness that binds and oppresses

Keeping you from receiving God’s peace

It may appear to be appealing

But to me, it is revealing

Of the struggle that you are in

The things you are desiring will only bring hurt and dis-ease, my friend

And God gave His Son on Calvary

Just so that you and I could be free from these sins

Resist that urge to walk back into that state of immorality

Stand steadfast in the freedom that Christ died to give you and me

Hold tight to the character and grace that empowers us to stay in His will

Receive and stand in His Love and Faithfulness it never fails

Your demeanor has changed.

And you speech sounds strange

with mumbles of discontent and hints of rebellion.

Talk is not cheap,

but it reveals what I cannot always visually see --

That you have faltered and that the enemy has deceived.

Your views have skewed, taking for granted God’s grace.

Remember He always there to strengthen you even here in this place.

Where the lust seems overwhelming, and the temptation tries to bind.

Where the devil seeks to steal from you and vex your mind.

As I look on, it distresses me.

I come not with a hidden agenda.

I only want to see you free and not hindered.

Maybe you did not see the danger,

Amid the fog and haze of desire

They hid the ledge you were walking towards that ends with a fall

filled With jagged rocks and strong waves,

That batter, discourage, and overwhelm

people like you and me

Take my hand, and let’s walk away

Let’s choose to stay in the light

Where the tricks of the enemy do not deceive

No need to throw up your walls or shout

This is not about which one of us is better or knows best

Or judging to condemn or Demeaning to disparage

This is about keeping your soul

From unnecessary toll, pain, and distress

This is about realizing God’s knows what is truly best

And has the means and desire to help us with the rest.

May the words of this poem speak to your heart encouraging you to be accountable to those in the Body of Christ realizing words of correction or warning are given from a place of love and care. May it also encourage us to speak the things that we see in humility and compassion to those who have strayed. Honoring the process and valuing the impact a word of accountability can have on changing the trajectory of someone's path. Let us speak words of observation that call others to reconciliation, healing, and relationship.

2 Corinthians 5:20 (NLT). "So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God! For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ."
