This begin with the first and second stanza. As I return to it, more stanzas birth out out of my experiences and remembering God’s Words as a whole. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister. 

Guilt

Guilt

Guilt

How many times are we motivated and/or driven by guilt?
Guilt is the most motivating factor for people to do good.
We need to identify true guilt and false guilt.
True guilt leads to repentance.
False guilt is lack of self-acceptance and believe not accepted by God.

Luke 3:7-9 (KJV)
Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Luke 5:31-32 (KJV)
And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

2 Corinthians 7:9-11 (KJV)
Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

Oxford advanced learner’s dictionary explains guilt very clearly. Guilt is the unhappy feelings caused by knowing or thinking that you have something wrong. Focus on Family explains the differences between true and false guilt.

Abyss of Darkness

In the abyss of darkness
Someone gropes
Fingers clutch rocks
Attempting to climb
Looking for exit
But futile attempts
Crying for help.

In the abyss of darkness
Another person keeps still
Enjoying the darkness
Atmosphere of darkness
Hoping to cover
Hidden sins.

It all started with the words “In the abyss, A man gropes in darkness” as I was walking on the road. The two men at the cross, beside Jesus, had different mindset though both fell into sin – a repentant and unrepentant sinner. Please refer to Matthew 27:38, Mark 15:25-28, Luke 1:79; 23:33-43, John 3:19; 19:18 to understand the above inspiration.
