“Straight Up”

[written on 5/8/16]

sometimes people say
they’re going through a process
to justify their behavior
that doesn’t resemble Christ

sometimes people hold on
to their bad habits
to balance them
as if Jesus wasn’t enough

sometimes people water down
the Truth
so what they’re doing
looks good in Him

I’ve been ALL these people
blinded in the church

if you take offense
that’s YOUR choice
this doesn’t speak of all
just some

I’m no longer a “weak” believer

I no longer sing ‘when I fall’
but ‘if’

I no longer sing ‘bound to sin’
I’ve been freed

I no longer sing ‘when I’m dry’
living waters flow through me

I no longer say ‘I’ll never be perfect’
because Jesus tells me to be
so I grow

hearing leads to listening
listening leads to believing
believing leads to following
following leads to becoming
becoming is freedom
