The Price Of Eternity

Nothing is worth the price of eternity,
Nothing too tempting, too strong.
It's simply too costly, the price that I pay,
The longings I feel are so wrong.

I know in my mind, but I feel in my heart,
I come for Your help on my knees.
So hold me, please hold me, and open Your arms,
And listen once more to my pleas.

The enemy knows just where to attack me,
He knows on my own I am weak,
And so, oh my Father, I come once again,
For Your strength I constantly seek.

Without You I'll fail and Satan prevail,
This battle must be overcome.
Eternity's calling, I fear I am falling
To lies and my feelings succumb.

For strength I am pleading and Your Word agreeing,
For Your sweet deliverance I pray.
Your promise I'm claiming, for heaven I'm aiming,
Don't let me Your mercy betray.


"The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations." II Peter 2:9a (KJV)

This is great because we all go through it and it strengthens us to know we are not alone. Thank you.

Our constant focus needs to be on Him. Good work, Carol.

An earnest prayer that should be on all our lips. Makes me think of the scripture in Hebrews -let us approach His throne boldly.
