Too Far

 

Too Far
By June Stein
~

When I feel far from You

I must look deep within,

The fault is mine alone

Brought about through sin.

Have I been judging others?

Impatient, self-impressed?

It’s time I look inside myself

And find what needs confessed.

Create in me a new heart, Lord

As once again I see,

That I am straying off the path

And not what I desire to be.

A little here, a little there

My focus seems to fade,

Words come out without due thought

And less than loving choices made.

But when I tell you all my faults

You touch me with redeeming love,

Forgiveness, undeserved, I find

Flowing freely from above.

Once more, I know the cleansing flood

That washes all my sin away,

Through Your Own agony and blood

By grace I walk on, in Your Way.

‘If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’
[1 John 1:9]
