Abandonment of what I know
Cavalier cavorting on the edge
Demeaning my saviour
Egotistic self-righteous reasoning
Fanciful fruitless wandering
Justification of my actions
Kneeling at the altar of self
Lauding MY accomplishments
Meandering thought streams
Quixotic dreams of a life where my choices do not matter
Really, I DO believe in the Christ!
So do the demons Ė see them tremble?
Truth. Only one truth
Vacate, all ye who plague my spirit!
Wholly Godís child am I!
EXorcise this evil, I pray thee Lord!
You are my rock, my salvation, my hope
Zealously I seek you. Hear my prayer.

Wow! This seriously cuts to the heart. This line: Naughty, naughty! made me laugh--but we laugh because it's true, right? It reminds me of this scripture: "Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin.For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night. Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight. You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just." Psalm 51:2-4 (NLT)
This would make a GREAT confession in a church's order of worship, liturgy thingy. (it's early). Although, I'm trying to imagine saying "naughty, naughty" at our 11 a.m. traditional service. Just your confession? I think not. ;-)
