[no longer subject to] My Pathetic Humanity

Mediocrity invades me like the sun invades a field
Beckons me to come bask in it's light of falsity
When I wander there it makes me feel fair, like I have no cares, I am walking on air
Til I see my dreams will never come true
Cause I'm not pursuing
The One who called me

Then I see where I am the distance in between
My dreams it's so far - a chasm width at least
And I sit and I think as a worm eats my shade
Depression threatens me with intense road rage

Sometimes it's just so hard to believe
This mental acid rain threatens to never leave
I pray and beg for a spiritual Tylenol
But when it comes my pride stores it for fall
Oh my pathetic humanity

"But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law." - Galatians 5.16-17 NASB

The unshackling of the bondage of human nature by Christ's sacrifice
is truly an amazing thing.
I am no longer chained to myself.

[simple truth] In Christ, I am free.

Have I told you how much I love your blog? I do. Really.

I just found your first ever comment on mine. "It makes me happy when you're happy." And THAT made me happy.
