My Sin, His Presence

Worse am I than you could know,
In myself, my sin, my shame,
If I am myself alone.

But alone am I no more:
Christ himself now lives in me;
His great glory shines within.

I don't need horror movies to see evil.
I've seen the evil in me.

I am about to gather them from all the lands where I have banished them in My anger, rage and great wrath, and I will return them to this place and make them live in safety.
--Jeremiah 32:37

We all have failed to measure up, but a lot of people won't admit it. Good poem.

This is so true. I really like the photo with the mushrooms. They come up so quickly and some of them are so deadly. I guess my own faults/sin are truly like that.
