It Just Really Ain't Worth It Mister

Updated on May 10, 2013

"It Just Really Ain't Worth It Mister "

"It just really ain't worth it ,mister,

What you will have to go through.

When Satan tempts me now I know

What people told me that it's true."

The young man spoke such sad words

As I walked past him in his jail cell,

"No one could make me believe before

But now I know the truth all too well.

When that old devil wants to tempt you ,

Do not stop , run, do not just walk away."

And I think so often of that young man

And of where he is living his life today.

Now that I am older ,I think in memory

I think of myself in my youthful days,

When the Lord intervened i n my life

And showed Himself in different ways

I did not really know Him back then

Oh, but He knew me much too well.

I was sick of what He saved me from

And the precious stories I could tell.

I passed through youth's troubled days

As through this world I would trod,

Some friends told me how it happened

They said conscience , I called Him God!

I carried those words with me always.

At times I would think of a wasted life,

Of the life in anger that he had taken,

And his own life of sorrow and strife.

A freedom gone forever tell his family,

A prison cell home until his dying breath.

His freedom he has given up forever.

Will he meet Jesus before he meets death?

If you know of some foolish young people

Who are always straddling Satan's gate.

Go to them now and tell them this story,

Tell them now before it is forever too late!

I guess there is not much to add to this .

God gave me this in the middle of the

night . I was not sure if I would get it on

here tonight , When I write it at night I

have trouble trying to decipher it. I am

sure there must be some young ones out

there to warn them of the dangers.!

      Hello Laurie ,Sometimes there will be a seemingly unimportant event will happen in our life that may change our life forever . If we had known we would have taken another road instead of the one that we followed, at the time it did not seem important to us but later it came back and it had Satan written all over it ,One way street with no turn around so we will follow it to the end. Thank God that He is a forgiving God!Love, Clara

      Hello Debbie. thank you for your comment,it is always good to hear from you .You know ,when God gives me words sometimes I wonder how I can do anything with what I get, but it is always amazing to me that they touch some people .Of course ,God knows ahead of time what I don't that they may be for one person or many more, I don't need to know ,just write what I get and it will come out all right, not because of me but because of God. Love, Clara

      How one choice changes one's life, well put.

      There is no turning back. God has indicated that to me many times.

      thanks again Clara

      God bless

      Thank you, Caleb, for your comment , yes,one bad choice can reap a lifetime of sorrow and unfortunately there are no do overs here.Too bad , I imagine a lot of people would be trying to get them.I would probably be the first in line.Good to hear from you ,Caleb. Clara

      Laurie, I just went back on here and it was my mistake ,that happens sometimes when I am on here after midnight. I think when the clock strikes midnight I had better shut this off and go to bed, I think my brain shuts down at 12:00 .Talk to you later,love ,Clara

      Voted awesome, Clara.

      Look how a single choice changed one's life permanently--something to ponder.

      It is thank you and God

      Oh I know you know what the message is, I mean for me, its a different one/persons. I am not saying you could not figure it out, sorry if it seemed like that, its hard on here sometimes to express your feelings.

      I meant for me it says something in my life also.

      What word did you change or were not to change may I ask. I find God is pretty cool God leaves and does things in my books/online/bible for me that way also.

      I am always interested in the things God does, it amazes me.

      thanks

      Laurie

      Laurie , sorry ,part of this wiped off so I will have to try again. Sometimes I will put a poem on shortly after I get it and then I have many laid back , either I didn't think they were good enough or it was not the right time. Only God knows why. I have some that I have never edited yet ,this one happened to have been one of them, I hope it is the right time now ,Love, Clara

      Hello Laurie, I am sorry that you misunderstood me, I knew exactly what the message was but I am not a very good writer anymore and I just write with my night light on and when I look at it in the morning I have trouble sometimes trying to read my own writing.I know God knows what I write , I put this on last night and one word would not print . It came up 3 times with a red line underneath it. I decided I was not supposed to use that word and put in another and it printed with no trouble. I have no idea why I was not supposed to put that word in but God knows. Love, Clara

      Dear Karen,Thank you for your comment,it is hard to get the young to listen anymore, they don't believe us .As they have been so brain washed in school , the media , movies and everything else that Satan is into and it is always before them wherever they go .Families don't go to church and their children are raised without God .What can we expect? If they turn to God there is no thanks for the things in our world now, just thanks to The Lord for His Mercy. Love, Clara

      HI Clara, looks like I am a guest user as I just put my name and thought it would sign me in automatically. However you said you have trouble deciphering this message from God, well behold I know exactly what my loving God is saying and to who. This is it.

      I have asked God to go to you in a dream and give you the answers to why you write some of these messages, and I guess you are about to find out.

      Maybe you can pray for him to tell you, as he does use you to send messages and so far they fit my life situation.

      I love God and thank you God and heavenly hosts and Clara for being one of his chosen people.

      God bless

      Laurie

      Dear Clara, This is very poignant. We can only warn them if we know some who are straddlying Satans gate, even though we all know, as you said in your words, in youth, most do not want to know. But the warning is extremely necessary, nonetheless because at some level, it IS heard and later, they will remember and say "Ah yes, that was God, through His servant, trying to steer me away from the darkness." God Bless
