    How many
    times do I fall on my
    knees and call on his name?
    For forgiveness and
    cleansing for the many times
    I fall into defame.
    I ask myself
    over and over
    How can I continue to fall into
    this sin,
    knowing that he is not pleased.
    Enjoying the small season
    of pleasure
    that could eventually lead me
    to have my heart, hell-seized.
    Oh, Lord I've sinned, but your still calling
    my name!
    I'm so thankful
    that in the midst of falling
    you still pick me up and never
    delete me from the game.
    I don't mean to
    indulge in the things that I do
    but I’m trapped in a body
    that has a mind of its own and
    truly, truly hates you!
    Yes I said hates you, simply because as
    we all know,
    the flesh has always been in opposition
    with the right and divine things that
    you do.
    I never asked to be born into
    a flow of sin,
    and in some things I fall again and again,
    but please, dear Lord, give me your
    strength to make it through,
    because time after time,
    and sin after sin shows me that
    I'm no one or nothing without you!

    The honesty in this piece is what gives it its strength. Few dare to tell God the truth that He already know. In the flesh dwells no good thing.

    I have to agree with river, there is such power in the truth. In God we can find anything and everything.

    Oh my blessed King the flesh is just a shallow form to over ride the soul which it is cloan, oh thy king the warrior of tomorrow and today, I give glory to thy God, that the spirit that subside in you can realize that God is God alone. The body is just a form and the spirit is loyal to only one, at times the body seems its in control, but the love of God shall claim the formation which it is form, oh yes we do have strength to forsake the weak, its the man who lives within the warrior of thy brothers and the sons of the sons. So thy King your strength comes within the time you have entered the world, the sons of kings and the brother who laid upon the cross, never doubt that weakness shall ever be the story that you shall sing, Man the image of thy God, the royal servent to thy God. Oh what a master peace that thy God created a nubian king. :luvv:
