In yesterdays Sunday preaching
a point was simply raised
about the center of Gods will
compared to how we spend our days.
Now that got me to thinking
as I drove to work this morning
would the me that Jesus sees
pain his heart or bring him glory.
I must confess my answer
to this question that was raised
does not thrill my heart at all
in fact it brings dismay.
As a Christian my mentor should be Jesus
My walk should follow his
to study of his teaching
my life to freely give
What then can I do
to right this wayward march
to turn my arrow towards the bull
to fix my wretched heart.
The answer lies within my failings
to which my hand has penned
I lack in study of his word
this rip I first must mend.
For he calls us all to know him
and he loves us every one
our earthly lives are filthy rags
and still he sent his Son.
My sins in life are many
yet he bore them all for me
His life on earth perfection
still they nailed him to the tree.
They… 2000 year old scape goats
yes. Physically they put Him there
but my sins are equally responsible
Lord, I gave you that cross to bear.
I may as well have held the nails
or drove them through Your flesh.
I may as well have thrust the spear
or neglected Your thirst to quench.
And still You love me any way.
You’ve known me from the start.
You’ve seen my inner workings.
You truly know my heart.
I pray Lord that this heart you know
brings more joy than pain.
I pray it is a heart you use
to bring glory to Your name.
My Lord I owe you everything
I’m nothing without you.
I’ve tried to do this on my own
and I don’t have a clue.
…..Lord I need You!!!!!!!
