With shame-filled
heaviness of heart
I ponder wasted
years,
Retracing steps
and choices made,
with sore regret
and tears

I don't deserve
Thy perfect love
or soul-reviving
grace,
Can blood, once trampled
underfoot,
such prideful, sin
efface?

Restore the locust-
ridden years,
a servant
I will be,
And only ever
in this life,
spend and be spent
for Thee


For many years, I have struggled with consistency in my walk with God. I genuinely did not know why as I wanted to please Him, and it bothered me. For almost a year now, He has been revealing to me my inner self, in the light of His holiness. Every time I wonder why I am not what I should be, He takes me to a place that I never knew existed, and I understand.

This morning, my Pastor talked about worldliness, and upon reflection, I realised once again, just how grievous my previous attitude and pride must have been to a Holy God.

Friend, do everything to His glory. Do not measure your standards, as did I, by those of whom you sit in the pews with. Just because everyone else is wearing/doing/watching/going, it does not make it right. If you have experienced legalism, as was my case, look to God's word and ask Him to teach you. His yoke is easy and His burden is light.

May God richly bless you and thank you for visiting.



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

I agree with everything you express here. We are to be holy and without blame before him in love. I think it takes us so long to see the truth because we really have no true faith, we don't believe we can be cleansed from sin, or we just love it (sin) and it takes a heavy load of shame to make us groan under what we really are...But God is faithful....

I don't know anyone who has only moved steadily upward in sanctification. As I'm sure you know, but it never hurts to be reminded, conviction is of the Holy Spirit for sin not yet confessed. Condemnation is from Satan, about sin that is already under the blood, endeavoring to render us ineffectual in our walk.
