Present In The Pit

Bound by a chain of darkness,
I was a prisoner to my sin.
I had the best intentions
In the eyes of men.
Right in mine own eyes,
I could not see Your truth.
I was the queen of innocence
In my wayward youth.
Yet down from heaven You came
To reach me in my pit.
You took the veil from my eyes,
And helped me to actually see it.
Washed, cleansed, renewed by You.
You left the ninety nine.
Because You came for me,
I am Yours, and You are mine.
No longer bound by chains of pain,
I’m free to receive Your love.
No need for false security.
Your presence is enough.

Inspiration: That You would come down into my pit of darkness and fight for me, even if it was me You had to fight. Tough love is a soul saver! ❤

Renew My Purity

**God answered prayer! It took time and discipline… years ago the mercy of the Holy Spirit led me out of my wilderness. He did answer prayer. He still answers every day.**

Filth… I am filled with filth and perverse ways.
Why do I think like this?
God, you and I know it is wrong and sinful.
Why do you let this all persist?
I pray and I pray, from the heart of my soul…
cleanse me… renew me… purify.
I pray for you to be my strength and power.
Why does it seem you deny?
I need to be purified by your Son’s blood.
Yet, still I continue in sin.
Why do I betray the love of my life?
Why do I just give in?
God, please, cleanse me, forgive me.
Rebuild me in your hands.
Renew in me a joy for spiritual purity
and help me to take a stand.
