Simple was I, muddy and stained.
A complacent sinner that the world has blinded.
Funny that I even thought I was kind and compassionate
Little did I know I was a self-absorbed kid
I thought I was good, I thought I was great
At least I wasn’t as bad as those on the streets.
I was a good daughter and so was a friend
Little did I know I depended so much on my strength
Oh and that I would pray when I wake up and at nights
Ironically between the day I would always start a fight
I would reason and convince everyone to go my way
Little did I know I was unconsciously going astray
Then out of somewhere came to me the grace of God
He showed me so much of myself which I thought I never had
When all the world kept saying I was doing “good”
He faced me to Himself and had me understood.
He revealed to me secrets that I have never known
About me and about Him that in His love He’s always shown
He took off the scales I had in my eyes
And gifted me the truth right over my hands.
From the old complacent me I then aimed to be excellent
I took hold of His grace and mercy that made all of me repent
I started to do things by His strength – for His glory and not my own
Praising Him in all I do, focusing in LOVE that on the cross he has shown
Sure I am not perfect and I am yet to be shaped
But I know I’m a work-in-progress in the Loving Potter’s hands
The world still provokes me and I still fall at times
But I am now secure and in His pattern I have renewed my mind
There remains few weaknesses and bad habits I suppose
But I will never let them hinder me from accomplishing His purpose
For my lifetime and journey on this earthly land
I will dwell in God’s love that has found me and in His love where I am found.
