"I hear the voice, the voice of the one I love. He's calling my name..."
Jesus, beckon me. Summon me. I'm so unfulfilled by the fading desires and temptations that the world has to offer me. They leave me feeling more empty and lifeless, yet these fleeting desires have the ultimate power of wooing me and distracting me away from you. Help me keep my eyes fixed on you. My life is not my own. I want to make decisions that are in my best interest and that keep me untainted by these ever increasing worldly cravings.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but you are my strength forever. I am human. I know that I struggle with sinful desires but I long to keep myself pure from everything that hinders you and your anointing in my life. Sure, I fall and screw up. It's inevitable. Please help me realize that my rise is greater than my fall, my determintation is stronger than my hestitation, my resistance is more fulfilling than tempation and your grace is so much more sufficient than my consistent failed attempts.
I see dark, you see lovely. I see ashes, you see beauty.
