If You Wasted Your Youth

Updated on May 11, 2013

If You Wasted Your Youth

If you wasted your youth all of those years spent in sin,

All of those years swept by so fast as if they had wings.

And now that you have grown older and you finally see

What terrible unhappiness that a wasted life often brings.

Those years you could have been and should have been

Spent sowing seeds for God ,but they are gone forever.

Why should you yield in youth and waste your young life?

That life was not for you ,Oh ,no,you were much too clever.

Clever indeed ! so clever that you had your worldly flings,

And they come back yet to taunt you and to disgrace.

You never knew how deep or how far that you had fallen

Until the day that you met The Lord Jesus face to face.

He was so full of compassion and you could feel His Pity,

And then you surrendered your heart to Him that very day.

Then He saw your wicked heart that was so black inside.

Oh,the fools part that we all sometimes let ourselves play!

He stripped you of everything that you once had held dear,

And then they were all as nothing , things that used to be,

The joy of your life you thought was your reason for living,

When you met Jesus that day He was all you could see.

You met Jesus and you know that never again will you write

Except that it be for the Honor and the Glory of the Lord.

You pray that it will slay sinners till they lay at Jesus' feet,

That it will have Power to spread God's mighty Holy Word.

You say you want to repent for all of those wasted years,

You went to Him truthfully ,and He sees deep into your heart..

When you surrendered your heart he cleansed it of all sin,

You gave Him your sin and He gave you a new life to start.!

We have to thank God when He forgives our

sins that He doesn't just forgive He forgets them,

He buries them so deep they can never be found.

What a feeling to know that there is no sin that

has to be forgiven again , once is enough if we

never go back into the devil's hands again, I can't

think why anyone would want to go back there

Once is enough to learn what it is and to shun

it always !

      Hello Lady Fiddler, I am glad to hear from you and you take care of yourself,it is so hard to think that people hate the Christians now, and it will get worse as people get more wicked every day, I never thought we would see the things as they are happening now , all of the ungodly laws that the courts are passing now ,surely they have to know that we will have to pay for all of these things someday.I had better get off of here and get busy now , my hub page is messed up now ,I will talk to you later ,Love Clara

      Hey dear thanks so much for the encouragement and all what you said is true. His aim is to kill steal and destroy us, I am anchored in Christ the world has nothing but heartaches and sorrows I rather have Jesus than silver or gold. I rather be held by his nail print hands. People hate you when you try to go right as Jesus said they hate you because you are not of this world if you were of the world they'll love you because the world love his own.

      Yes I'll keep in touch with you sweetheart :)

      Love you my sister in Christ

      Hello Lady Fiddler, it is good to hear from you , I can never understand why when someone gives their heart to Jesus their friends try their best to pull them back into sin. Don't let any one get to you that this one little thing won't hurt ,if you do one thing then there will be another until you you would soon be back where you was before God saved you . Satan would love to get us back again, he has nothing for us just heartaches and Hell in the end of our life, Keep in touch with me ,I want to hear from you and I will keep you in my prayers,Thank you for your comment, and just follow in Jesus footsteps . Love ,Clara

      This was very lovely clara I've been meaning to come to your hubs a lil while now, I am glad I came just in time for this wonderful treat. I am young 25 years old and I owe my life to Jesus at calvary. We have all sinned and come short of the glory of God but the desire is always there ever burning not wanting to stray yet still sometimes we fall to satan as his prey. People tell me am old because I don't do wrong things like, drink, smoke, party , fornicate etc.

      I rather be a young old woman and have no regrets and serve the LORD with gladness. A very good message you send out here hope many take heed. Blessed is he whose sins are covered Psalms 32. How sweet Jesus is to purify us and never tell our evil deeds to anyone in love he'll say I forgive.

      God bless you

      Love yah!!!

      Hello Blossom, Thank you for your comment. The young people do not get much help any place now to keep them on the straight and narrow way . The government is trying it's best to get rid of God in just about everything. God still has many of the young on His side but , but we can't thank the government for that , They can take God out of school and so many other things but they can't take God out of the hearts of the believers. The young people now need a lot of prayer ! Love,Clara

      This reminded me of a verse my mother was keen on quoting to us children: Remember your Creator in the days of your youth. It really is important and thank you for your poem.

      Hello MsDora, yes, it is important for the young people to heed advice but it seems like it is hard to get them to listen to the older folks sometimes, they don't realize that we are only trying to help them, but we can not give up trying to get to them.Thank you .Love, Clara
