Is it truly living if only half
Of who you are sees the light?
The other half sits in darkness on behalf
Of the hideousness associated with it, what a fright!
If people knew you struggled with this
And have a history with that.
How could you possibly be His?
You are repulsive like fat.
Blemishes and scars appear
People run and people hide
Cannot stand what they see in the mirror
As they struggle with too much pride.
It’s not true, it couldn’t possibly be
That these imperfections and things unseen
Could possibly belong to one like me.
Unable to comprehend the notion
That He would love you unconditionally
Leads to empty hearts and lack of emotion
As your lives continue dysfunctional.
Imprisoned by fear of being found out
You hide behind walls of busyness
While the Evil One pounds out
Every ounce of strength you have in business.
Around “churchy-folk” you’re righteous,
Outside that circle you’re restless
Uncertain whether or not Christ is
Worth all the effort and investments…
Folks, it’s time to wipe off the makeup,
Let things unknown come to light,
Remove yourselves from darkness, wake up!
Haven’t your teachers taught you left from right?
The Lover is concerned with your heart,
Do not concern yourselves with outer things,
They will only distract and tear your apart,
From the One who gives flight to your wings.
Child, are you not tired of running and hiding?
Run to the Father and allow yourself to seek refuge,
No need to remain independent and continue backsliding,
I hear His Love for you and me is rather HUGE!
Here’s the deal, the time has come
For you and I, alike and different
To remove our veils and give Him all, not some.
Father is not interested in half of your cup,
He already drank it all.
Lay down your pride and lift up
Your faults to the One who delivers us from the fall!
Daily you’ll need Him, as do I
Discontinue pretending it is possible alone
Don’t even begin to try
The task is an absolutely colossal one.
It is time; we’ve reached the conclusion,
Remove religious makeup, tear away veils,
Authentic hearts and Jesus Christ is the solution,
He is the one to bring momentum to your sails!
