It Is Me Again
God, it is me once again
Here I am drowning in my sin
Though I try hard in every way
I always need Your grace each day
I donít know where to start
So I ask You to look into my heart
If anything is unpleasing to You
Wipe it clean and make it new
My spirit is willing but flesh weak
On my knees it is You that I seek
I realize how much grace I need
Forgive me to You I humbly plead
I do what I donít want to do
And donít do what I should too
I know that Iíve been relying on me
Forgive me that too, to You is my plea
So much for which I need grace
All I want to do is seek Your face
Yet that is not what always gets done
Too often Iím too tired or having fun
Praise You, Father for who You are
You are graceful to forgive sins that mar
The soul of this man is filthy rags
I am nothing worthy of boast or brags
Your grace is sufficient even for me
My strength is never enough to free
Lord, I need you more every single day
Forgive me, my life is Yours have Your way
Brothers and Sisters,
I have been constantly humbled in this environment. I have been faced with and dealing with temptations, thoughts, and other temptations that I thought I was beyond already. Sitting in a healthy, comfortable environment surrounded by Christian friends and neighbors it is easy to think that you are making progress in your spiritual maturity. Then when you are removed from that environment you find yourself not as mature or strong as you thought you were becoming.
I humbly submit to you my friends that this is the case in my life right now. I have been humbled by how impure my thoughts and actions can become when surround by the world. I have not backslidden nor do I think I will. I am surrounded by the Lord and He will carry me through, but I realize now how corrupt the flesh is if we donít have something to keep us in check. It would not take long if I did not focus upon the Lord to fully backslide. So I thank God that He is control of my life.
I know the Lord put me here to learn this and so many more lessons. It is hard to boast upon yourself when you have nothing upon which to boast. I boast upon my weakness and my need of the Lord so that God gets glorified.
My first years as a Christian has been reading and studying the Word of God, but now I find that in this place I am applying what I have learned. This is where I align Scripture to my life and my life to Scripture. It is amazing how much more you gain from the Word when you can put it directly to you life.
Stay strong and blessed in the Lord. Keep serving.
Humbled in Christ,
