God Changes Me


I feel like MOSES at times~

in his ANGER

he broke the ten commandments.

I feel like DAVID at times~

in

his TEMPTATION

he succumbed.

I feel like JONAH at times~

in his FEAR he ran.

I feel like JONI at times~

when I am

ANGRY

TEMPTED

FEARFUL

&

respond to

my fleshly desires

that are part of my

OLD NATURE~

my old DNA

that still creeps up in me.

Those parts of me

that I detest,

yet hating them away wont take them away.

BUT oh by the

GRACE OF GOD

that covers

all those detestable traits of mine

as HE SAYS~

Even though I know every one of them

I love you.

I love you so much that they don't define you.

MY SON defines you.

HE has covered the old with the new

&

is taking each one of those detestable things

&

replacing them with

HIS

PEACE

JOY

&

FORGIVENESS.

So when I feel like

MOSES

DAVID

&

JONAH~

those Old Testament Characters~

I know that I am in good company

because GOD knew their hearts

Down to every itty bitty sin

&

still called them to go and preach

HIS WORD to the world.

Oh amazing grace

how sweet the sound

that changed a wretch of me~

and that continues to change a wretch like me.

FROM RAGS TO RICHES~

HE changes me.
