The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them: the cords of their sins hold them fast.
Our sins trap us, they wrap around us and pull us down. They eat at our hearts and make them hardened. They keep us from living the life that God has planned for us. They hold us back!
Turn away from our evil desires. Keep our focus on God and his will for our lives. Don’t test ourselves by seeing how close to the line we can walk before falling over. Stay far away from that line!
Lord forgive for the times when I have fallen short. Lead me not into temptation and deliver me from evil!
