But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. Revelation 2:5
Undertow of sin carries me far from shore.
Arteries so clogged with my will, His lifeblood can’t get through.
No longer my first love, the Lord becomes a consolation prize.
A fall back.
In case of emergency, break glass.
I pursue the desires of my heart without regard for His.
The world conforms.
My kingdom come, my will be done.
I am my own authority.
His ways blurred and forgotten.
God is faithful.
He tells me what is good.
He is patient, compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in peace.
Peace that passes understanding.
Deceitful heart leads me astray.
Foolish and dark.
Lover of self.
The heart is emotion’s home.
Love and hate, peace and war, life and death all live there.
The world says, “Follow your heart.”
When I listen, it leads me astray.
Think and know.
Test and approve.
Guard my heart’s corrupt, deceitful desires.
A siren’s song leading to destruction.
Destruction of soul.
A sedative of same.
I’m okay, you’re okay.
Scripture altered for comfort and ease.
Candy coated truth.
Lies that lead to graveyards and death.
Choose this day whom I will serve.
Something or someone is always in charge,
Right or left, up or down.
Self or God?
World’s wisdom found foolish.
In my weakness, He is strong.
Imitate God and walk in love.
Love God, love people.
Give and break.
Break open the kingdom.
A beggar with bread.
Hunger and thirst.
Bread of life.
Love in action.
Love breaks and bleeds.
Enemy becomes heir.
