Spiritual Riddle –

Drowning Revised by danji-isthmus on Deviant Art

I stepped passionately into the river

one uneventful night

the water was ice cold

it froze my very soul

the sky so dark and black

I could not see the light

I stepped further in that river

one bitter, cold night long ago

the chill broke my spirit

yet I waddled further in it

What drew me to that river

I may never, ever know

My  hot heart pumped so fiercely

as to keep my blood a flow

my heart warmed my soul

as I regained self control

Yet, I stood frozen in the river

in endeavors to resist the river’s tow

Then I heard a wise voice calling

from a far distance on the shore

I took a step towards it

as it gently stroked my spirit

I quickly waded from that river

vowing, never, never more…

I have existed since creation

Will exist through revelation

a weakened spirit many say

Yet my strength is overpowering

Leaving all men often cowering

Searching for a rock in the middle of the river

Whilst I maneuver one to pray . . . .

I am the Spirit of Temptation

I love the riddles Cordie. Even though we make it out….something always calls us back.

ah, this was so right on! The Spirit of Temptation is a hard taskmaster (or taskmistress…as the case may be).

Personally, I think it takes a Holy Spirit to overcome it 🙂 Ours combined with Gods….

ah ha… you definitely got me on that one… i was thinking the never ending river of bad relationships…. but then in a way they seem to be result of following that temptation you are talking about huh??

Great riddle! Thanks for sharing. Interesting how powerful or weak temptation is depending on where you are at on your journey.

@Dan. . . .well not ALWAYS. . . thank God! (At least I hope not. . . lol)

@Grace. . . . perhaps??? What is your definition of the Holy Spirit dear Grace? I’m really curious.

@Paisley…Temptation comes in many forms. . . . I feel temptation is anything we do that we know is not done in the spirit of love.

@Tobeme. . . very interesting indeed. . . and the journey continues…

Blessings as always to all!
