The Porn Trap
In the middle of the night when your spouse is asleep,
To the computer you would creep,
A press of a button a few clicks of a mouse,
Who are these strangers you are letting in your house?
The screen comes alive with bodies galore,
Every kind of image you can think of and more,
Clothing all absent everything spread,
Your body heats up as sights sink in your head.
Some hours later you’re still glued to the screen,
Now you’re feeling anything but clean,
Your bodily fluids are all over you,
Is this really what you want to do?
You sneak back to bed and under the quilt,
Now you’re laden down with all kinds of guilt,
The images permeate your mind through and through,
You’re finished with them, but they’re not finished with you.
You try to play tough you try to play strong,
You try to convince yourself you’ve done nothing wrong,
But my brother, my sister there’s something deathly wrong with that,
Once you’ve looked on with lust you’ve committed the act.
Whether or not you want to admit it,
You are bound up in sin and you need to quit it,
The enemy has a vice-like grip on you
And it’s only God’s power that can bring the breakthrough.
You’re not just reading this because it is near,
It’s God’s Spirit speaking to you loud and clear,
He’s saying my son, my daughter come running to me
I love you, I’ll forgive you, I’ll set you free.
So stop sneaking, stop hiding, stop pretending today,
Instead humble yourself on your knees and pray,
A broken heart and contrite spirit He will not despise,
With His help from these ashes you shall arise.
“But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust in his eye has
already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
Matthew 5:28 (NLT)
“But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong.”
I John 1:9 (NLT)
“I will refuse to look at anything vile and vulgar. I hate all crooked dealings.”
Psalm 101:3 (NLT)
