Therefore thus says the LORD:
“If you return, I will restore you, and you shall stand before me.
If you utter what is precious, and not what is worthless, you shall be as my mouth.
They shall turn to you, but you shall not turn to them.
I put my fingers to the keyboard.
I pray, stumbling upon His holiness.
Confessing, my unholiness.
Trusting in forgiveness He provides.
I choose the precious.
There are times it is not so.
There are times I engage in fleshly battles-
He has not ordained for me.
I choose the vile, and realize I stand alone.
Obedience, cast aside like an old, worn garment.
I seek something new.
Foolishness greets me.
I am naked.
Longing for the clothes He graciously gave me,
I stumble into grace.
He takes hold of me in my dark place,
illuminates the corners of despair
sanctifying me again,
setting me apart-
caressing me gently
with his righteousness,
restoring me to
reminding me of His call
His Spirit empowers me,
ignites my heart
to share –
As He leads.
His mercy, His sacrifice.
His undying, dying love
that lives forever.
Leading me to bid farewell to the temporal
for the Kingdom
unseen by many,
even His own.
But I see, it.
I see it.
I see it full well.
Keep me from being blind to that which is precious,
while pursuing what will be in the end,
In Your Sight.
