Born again Christian, learning to live the life God wants for me. Sharing my life experiences and lessons.
My soul is strangled
My flesh the culprit
And I’m not preaching from the pulpit
I’m just another human being
Who’s on the verge of truly seeing
Father God, come make me whole
Restore to me what the devil stole
I know I’m lacking
My bones are cracking
I’m getting older
Time won’t slow down
I need the help
That only You can give
Holy Spirit, please
In my heart, come live

Sometimes this world can draw us in. Old habits can die hard. When we feed our flesh, but starve our souls, the flesh becomes strong and the soul, weak. We must take up our cross and nourish the soul, but sometimes that's easier said than done. Have you ever struggled with this? How did you overcome it? I'd love to hear your story in the comments below.

I appreciate and loved every word in your poem, which was just beautiful. I too, have been exactly where you were and I was most probably so much worse. I really enjoyed in particular, the last 4 lines and I'm sure others would only echo them. I hope I will remember them.
Something I heard some time ago and means a lot to me - There are two animals in our hearts and are constantly at war with each other, our human nature and our divine nature.
Wich one will win - the one you feed.
I want what those last 4 lines are saying.
Again my best Heather,
