Sin always starts with a trickle,
such as not being where you should be …
not doing what you should be doing,
or thinking in terms of “me’.

Sin always begins with a deception,
as Satan whispers into your heart …
and as we believe his arguments,
that is how sin can then start.

Sin always tends to escalate,
much like a domino effect …
and once that ball is rolling,
it becomes difficult to correct.

Sin always destroys something,
and sometimes, even someone …
Faith can fade, trust can disappear,
once the damage has been done.

Sin will always be discovered,
although our efforts are contrary …
and often the results of this finding,
can surely be dreadful and scary.

Sin always starts with a trickle,
yet can become a river so fast …
that rages beyond our control,
like a spark that turns into a blast.

Yet – let us all not forget,
despite the lives we are livin’ …
with Jesus as our Lord & Savior,
Sin is always forgiven !!

As always, make champion choices,
The Healthy Habit Lady
