Pushing this flesh into alignment,
guided by The Word most holy and pure,
I’m striving to learn principles
for a sanctified life to endure.

My Lord loves me without hesitation
and allowed a part of Himself to die.
He’s calling me homeward without reservation;
by His Spirit, to His side, I’ll eventually fly.

Knowing I’m a child of His,
during trying times I find true encouragement.
I’m able to lean on His strength
while in search of heavenly ascent.

Stumbling forward with pained progress,
I’ve chosen to turn myself towards Thee.
On Your path, lit by spiritual Light, I’m hoping…
That You will still forgive… a sinner like me.

    How inscriptive for each of our lives, when faced with the fact that Divine LIGHT calls to us; and will we do an accurate audit~, as you have so bravely and masterfully done? A most enjoyable muse, Joseph. Thank you for caring to share.

    Oh this is brilliant, I know this feeling so well
    My favourite part was:
    Pushing this flesh into alignment,
    guided by The Word most holy and pure,
    I’m striving to learn principles
    for a sanctified life to endure.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
