Flaws of My Heart

Sat in on an early morning sermon today.   While listening in, this came to mind…

The Bumrose Club & Marina -This Could  Be Bad....

Flaws of My Heart
by Michael Doyle

My flaws of the heart
Directed by sin from the start
My eyes closed to Godly fear
I have lived on the illusion that it will disappear
And no one will know
Yet, the wages of sin still show

Instead of being loved, I am hated
This is my lot and I am so fated
Clinging to my verity of illusion
That as it seems are only my delusions
Time and again, a victim of doubt
Through the emptiness of my mouth

Set out on my wicked ways
Though truly not the choice of my days
Desperately in need of His mercy
I turn my dreams to fidelity
Knowing that the Lord's judgments are deep
And yet, the Lord will sustain me though I weep

I am a child of Adam in the shadow
Taking refuge there though I do know
That peace is is the fountain of life
Instead I drink too often of strife
My heart needs its just defense
And instead though I would know truth, I know pretense

To the Lord, I lay prostrate as I call
Before my sins, I too often fall
It is said that in the giving, I receive
I'll do my part and believe
Dying to my wicked self to be born again
Though God knows my needs, does he forget now and then?
