Hiding from the reflector would not help me
Truthfully, there is nowhere to escape
The words, Holy, God inspired reflect the heart
Held themselves before me and I was to see.
He promises a way to bypass temptation
I fail to even look for the door
He promises to walk through the valley with me
I panic and let go of the foundation.
He tells me not to worry about tomorrow
I lay awake worries heavy on my heart
He promises to always be with me
I feel only overwhelmed in the sorrow.
He bids me put on the whole armour of God
I find each piece too heavy in my weakness
He calls for me to cast my net
I remain rooted on the familiar sod.
I am called to be like Christ
To strive to be perfect in Him
Yet the reflection tells me
Who and what I am -so far from Christ.
Thank You Father, that Your forgiveness
Wipes my soiled and sour soul clean
And with Your help, Your aid
Promise rises through my mess.
