My life was in multiple places, I was stretched in wide spaces. I felt as if I had no worth, For no fruit from my goals have come forth. My life was driven by what I did, Only to find it worthless as lead. But now I know the truth of it all, God sees … Continue reading In Christ, I’m Redeemed

My Lord, take away my pride,
Cast from me my willfulness against you.
For it prevents me from having peace,
My joy is robbed by my stubbornness.
My arrogance has become a part of me,
A useless organ has my pride become.
I plea to the Almighty to remove it from me,
My King, I cry that you cut out my rebellion.
For I long to have a perfect bond with You,
My God is the only One I wish to be close to.
But my pride is separating me from you,
My rebelliousness has divided us.
Therefore I will turn from my arrogance,
In repentance, I will reject my willful nature.
How freeing it is to be abandon pride,
What joy it is to embrace repentance and forgiveness.
Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10 Holy Bible, New International Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) create in me a humble…
