A Christian heart isn't Sunday mornings,
It isn't smiles and potlucks,
It isn't worship in a coffee shop,
Or studying theology at college,
It isn't charity events,
Or traveling the world,
A Christian heart is a broken,
It's a crushed soul and a mourning,
Over sin, over self-hatred, over forgiveness,
It's healing and a heart overflowing,
Feeling suffocated by a grace you can never deserve,
It's a weeping in the night,
Whispered prayers in the dark,
It's a constant falling on your knees,
A constant dying to self,
It's a total surrender,
A complete abandon,
It's insanity and inconceivable,
It's perfection and simple,
It's silence and a still, small voice,
It's joy and shouts from the rooftops,
It's a struggle and a wrestle,
A war of constant battles,
Of your God fighting against sin,
And your sin against God,
It's overcoming your failures,
You only lose if you give up,
It's giving up control and a need to understand,
And knowing you never had control or knowledge at all,
It's not telling people how much God loves you,
It's telling the world how much God loves them,
It's not asking, How does God love me?
But instead, How can I love God?
I hope this is helpful to any who read it. To God be the glory; He is the author, I am the pen <3
