Born in Your image
Yet separated from Your presence
By choosing my will
Over Yours

Drifting further
And further apart
Drowning in a sea
Of selfish desires

Finally recognizing Your existence
And in faith
Choosing to submit
My will to Yours

Through the power
Of Your Holy Spirit

Openly admitting
My transgressions against You
Sensing deep remorse and sadness
From the distance between us

Amazed by Your gracious
Offer to wipe
The slate clean
And start over anew

Thoughts in my mind
Focus on Your will
Our hearts joined compassionately
Together forever as one

Galatians 5:22-26 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. NKJV
