“H” Is for Holiness
“ 'Consecrate yourselves,
and be holy,
because I am the Lord your God.’”
(Leviticus 20:7, NIV)
Why do I ever box You in,
As if to shirk Your discipline,
Although Your oil of healing balm
Might mend, restore and ever calm?
Conflicted in my deepest soul,
I long to let You have control –
To rise above all that I fear,
Press ever closer and revere.
Instead, I swap ideas with fools
Who resurrect all rotten rules.
Perhaps they think me stupid still
And hope to sway me from Your will.
In conversations, just we two,
I fall again in love with You.
Lord, make me evermore desire
To be made holy by Your fire.
