I Can't But God Can

It's true that I am damaged,
It's true that I have failed,
It's also true that by myself
Sin cannot be curtailed.

Resolutions cannot change me
And my willpower always fails,
Only God can change forever
And what's in the heart prevails.

I can change outward behavior
But it's what's inside that's real,
And my actions are determined
By the things I can't conceal.

Inside out is how You'll change me,
Come, create a brand new heart,
For I long to be the person
You intended from the start.

For so long I have attempted
What alone I cannot do,
Come and change me, Holy Spirit,
Now I give the job to You.


"It seems to be a fact of life that when I want do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. I love to do God's will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God's willing servant but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin." Romans 7:21-23 (The Living Bible)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
