15.2.23: I want to start afresh

I wanted today’s blog to be about what I learned this morning in prayer, but it’s been another demanding day, and I’m very fatigued at present, so I haven’t had enough time to finalise the writing. However, I’m looking forward to sharing it with you when the time is right. Instead, here is a poem I wrote a little while ago:

Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the Lord (Lamentations 3:40; KJV).

Lord God,
I want to start afresh:

To turn from
My self-centred ways,

To love you, Lord,
In everyone,

And try to grow like Christ,
Your Son.

Lord God,
I want to start again:

To do my best to serve
And pray,

To wrestle with
Each chronic sin,

To bear my cross,
And follow Him.

Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me” (Luke 9:23; NLT).
