Check me out on Facebook and Twitter, looking forward to meeting you, and if you have any poems you’ve written yourself please share below. I read every comment, and will be sure to give some positive critiques.
18 And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what is right, but I can’t. 19 I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway. 20 But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.
It screams “I want more! Feed me!”
This animal is always hungry
How can I rid myself of the beast within me?
Holy Spirit, I only want you, yet I continue to deal with this darkness
It laughs at me every time I fail. It haunts my nights when I’m alone, when I’m with others, when I worship, when I sing praises to You
It reminds me of my past, of my yesterdays
Father, remove this thorn and sooth my pain, deliver me from this oppression.
I need Your grace to nail it on the cross every day
I need to die so You can live
My ego, my will, its agenda, its cravings, I give to you
Have Your way Lord, my King, I submit to Your purpose
