Without Him

When you see yourself as strong,
Remember how weak you were.
When you see yourself as kind,
Remember how reckless and rude you were.
When you see yourself as wise,
Remember the fool that you once were.
When you see yourself as bold,
Remember the coward that you were.
When you see you have a heart that loves,
Remember how cold it were.
When you see you have unbreakable faith,
Remember how brittle it once were.
When you see yourself as a righteous man,
Remember the sinner that you were.
At the end of it all,
When you see that you’ve done your duties in life,
Remember the nothing that you were,
When you stood by yourself,
And leaned not on Him.


Help me remember, Lord. Amen.

A New Season

How long..? How long..?

Can I stay away..?

How long can I stay away,

From all I’m meant to be..?

The desire,

Is no passing thought,

But a longing

Deep within me.

Memories though,

Like pictures on the wall,

Remind me of all

The times I tried,

And failed.

“Pick up.

Pick yourself up.”,

He says.

“Just try.

Just try again.”
