Dear Lord Jesus,
Create in me a heart so pure.
Remove the sin man cannot cure,
And everything that You abhor,
For you will be my Great Reward.
I compare myself to You,
And no good work I’ll ever do
Will equal such a purity
As You have yet to work in me.
The way of life that you require
Is not what flesh would most desire.
But since I love what makes You smile
I’ll walk with You the extra mile.
I pray that on the Judgment Day
You will not cast me far away,
Keep me till the very end!
With love, Your trusting friend.

Author's note: The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through fifteen . The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness. Please also see America, Turn Back to God. I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master." Now I'd like to ask a very important question.
Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
