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