Reveal

Search my heart God,

that has been the cry

of my heart

and on my lips.

Asking God,

Searchme“Reveal the things in me 

that are not of You

and to give me eyes to see

Myself as You sees me.”

 

Christ took it all upon Him,

but it is so easy for me

to continue to carry things

if I allow myself

to identify with them

or at times

even fight Him

to keep the very things

He is trying to strip from me.

 

As things are revealed

that have long been

a part of my life,

I have to choose

to lay them down

at His feet.

Stripping away things

that I have held onto

without realizing

they are the very things

that keep me

from pressing into Him.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try the believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you
