The Roaming Heart

I’ve been the one who appeared to be good
Singing and praising the Lord
I’ve been the one who all thought was meek
Knowing a lot in the word

But inside my pride was boiling up
I made real bad choices alone
I put on a mask of being so good
But deep down inside my heart roamed

Then God brought me low before His great cross
I realized the depth of my sin
I started to live an authentic faith
Where Christ reigned supreme within

Today I watch daily that pride does not rise
My wife helps my eyes to behold
My Savior is there to help me along
I thank Him that He brings me low



In response to the daily prompt Authentic

    Wonderful! Your poem brings to mind two Scriptures. Matthew 23: 12, “For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” (NIV). And Matthew 5:4,”. “Blessed are those who are poor in spirit.” (NIV).
