Confession and Hope


We've done wrong
Decades long...
Clutched at pride
As we died.

Shake our bed.
Wake the dead. 
Clear off mud
By your blood. 

Wash us bright
By your light.
Set our gaze
On your ways.

Be our whole
Aim and goal.
Fix our eyes
On the prize.

Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:12-14 ESV)
