He Calls Us to FREEDOM!
He calls us to HIMSELF!
From a Sister here, in her Time Home with Him...
Freedom is a word i know
i’ve used it oft before to show
my deep desire, my utter need
from controlling forces to be freed.
In the past, in my old Lifeless life,
which was filled with wasting disease and strife,
there were specific sins i befriended
and to them my habits were all lended.
Many long years i did spend
in these patterns, till in the end
my muscle memory was formed
and trained through repetition to conform.
Thus when i did Jesus meet
and fell, delighted, at His feet,
what an ugly mess He found within
though He did not tell me then.
He waited, till along the way
i could bear what He had to say.
Step by step, layer by layer
He is rewiring my memory player.
There was a key point, He had known
which i needed to be shown
that all these sins being revealed
were simply the product of the true force field.
A tyrant ruling within me
with ruthless and demanding mastery.
This tyrant bears the name of SELF
and operates in uncanny stealth.
Thus since Jesus entered in
He helps me identify each layer of sin
at a point i came to be aware
that the tyrant was still there!
Knowing that its reign is ended
and being, as a servant of satan, offended
this tyrant which formerly ruled through me
NOW tries to rule by MEMORY!
Those old habits so ingrained
those responses so repeatedly trained
are often now the thing i must see
to choose my course afresh, cuz now i’m FREE!
So little children, i beg of you,
be aware in EVERY thing you do
that a habit is being formed
that your synapses are being conformed.
When Jesus’ people say, “don’t sin!”
they speak of your future and your being within.
Make paths inside your heart and mind
that turn to Jesus time after time.
Even while your tyrant SELF rules
Jesus has yet given you tools
to prepare a place for Him inside
by turning and turning and returning, never hide!
Jesus, the most amazing Being,
make a habit of Him seeing!
Do not listen to even the tyrant within
rather listen to Those who can help against sin.
In the days to come you will see
the fruit of your choices and habits will be
either enemy forces you must fight within
or muscle memory that leads you to Him.
He is able every foe to defeat,
He is eager always your heart to meet,
He is Mighty and Gentle, Compassionate and True,
and it is to FREEDOM from the tyrant that He calls you!
