See who I want to be

I've shown you the ugly truth of who I am. Layed it all out for you to gaze at and see the stuff I'm made of. Ahh, the 3 am musings of a mom that can't sleep. You never know what you're gonna get. It's quite freeing actually. I don't have to hide behind some pretense that I'm perfect. You'll either like me or not, but it doesn't matter. At least you'll see the true me. I dare you to do it. Lay it all out there- a little bit of the stuff you don't want anyone to see.

Now that you've seen what I am, I hope you'll see what I can be. I hope you'll see the possibilies and the true heart that beats within. A heart that burns for more. A heart that isn't satified with a taste of goodness or mercy, but a heart that cries Abba! Father! More Lord. Take me deeper. Let my life , be consecrated unto You. May it be a sweet incense before You. Burn me up in the furnace of Your desire and may that burning ignite a desires in others to jump into the furnace. To not bend a knee, but to bodly stand before you.

"There is therefore now no condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the spirit of life which is in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death."
Romans 8:1,2
