A TRUE CHILD
Father, help me to give up
my childish ways for your sake,
and to keep my childish mind toward you,
so, I will not be a hypocrite or a fake.
I know part of me wants to keep
my childish ways,
but, I also know they will
always lead me astray.
They will make my way seam right,
full of deception, and illusions
that masquerade a false light.
It is so easy for me to follow the world
through my own thoughts and
understanding of who I am.
The path is much wider, many follow,
lead, and concede, but it’s all a sham.
I know you know me better than
the world and my thoughts,
you are God’s Son the world’s sacrificial Lamb,
you are the great I AM.
I know my mind
and my heart are too complex for me
to have formed,
I need to come to You as a child so through
Your truth it can be transformed.
You, my Heavenly Father teach all your children
that come to you through your Son,
that when we give up our childish ways to Him, we will find,
through your Holy Spirit you are giving us His mind.
1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
