What I focus on will eventually draw me inward. If I listen to the accuser, I act more like a sinner. But when I see your face I find my failures eclipsed by grace. Finally I begin to see your light shinning inside of me. Your love warms my heart and the transformation starts. I am touched by your mercy. Your spirit makes me thirsty. I crave our time together. I want to be with you forever. I have your joy inside. I no longer try to hide. But when my focus is on me it’s all my sins that I see. Gradually I begin to wonder if you’ll love me any longer. I try so hard to change but I fail just the same. Can I really ask again forgiveness for the same old sin? I think you’re growing weary no more do I feel you near me. I’m afraid and I often cry because I never change and I don’t know why. My faith is loosing ground. My mind is no longer sound. Time and again you find me And gently you remind me “Keep the cross in your view Then you will remember my love for you.” Now I can breathe again and allow your love to enter in.
