My life was completely torn open,
Every part of my shame shared with the world,
All of my failures written on my forehead,
Every word I spoke echoed my mistakes,
No part hidden from God.
I sought to hide myself from God,
Thinking I could cover up my failures,
Stupidity replaced common sense,
As I sought to rely on my own salvation,
But God knows me inside out,
From the moment I drew breath he was there,
No part of me goes unloved,
My failures, my shame, my mistakes,
Even my greatest stupidity,
Every part is known and then loved.
God confidence means that I will not cower,
The attacks against me born from hatred of God,
Their time is up and I am speaking out now,
My focus on God’s love sorts the lies very easily,
They stand out like a gaping wound,
That cannot be hidden from sight.
Today I begin with an open heart,
Broken open with no unseen parts,
Tested by Love’s’ piercing eyes,
Seeking out anything not begun by love,
Even my deepest thoughts,
Will be examined by Love,
Love will lead me to my daily choices,
The light to Eternity’s gifts.
