blind spots

in my heart

in my soul

in my mind

creating the allusion

that i'm aligned

with God

when in fact

the truth is


from what God sees...

is what I perceive,


do my lips and my heart

speak in unity?

or do they conflict

with hypocrisy?

while my flesh and spirit

war against each other

does my true self

get smothered by

my sinful nature?

does my heart

deceive my mind?

twisting, manipulating

my thoughts?

or is my mind

being daily renewed?

do i find my

devotion and love for God


getting choked by the thorns

of life?

do I tell myself,

"I'm spiritually mature"

but then judge the actions

of anothers' fallen nature?


should not be glazed

with selfish ambition,

motives or pride

in humbleness

we should all decide

to open our hearts

before the Almighty God

to reveal

and heal

our desperately wicked hearts

The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Who can know it? -Jeremiah 17:9

The Lord says: "These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men." ~Isaiah 29:13

Author's Notes/Comments: 

having two natures can be hard at times... i wrote this one day when i was questioning myself, and trying to search my heart to check whether or not i was living truthfully or not. i claim to love God, but do my actions speak otherwise? i must reevaluate this issue constantly
