The Stem is Far to Long
Do you mind while I wait that I do the things I hate, and ignore the things I love
When I'm sure my life is night
I want to but cannot fight
I want to run but I can't even walk away
-
Still you call me to you
Knowing all the things I do
Knowing all the things I don't
And even all the things I won't
You can and choose to reach me from the other side of the world
-
Without your love I'd be dead in every way I'm sure
You reached farther than anyone else would
-
You heal me when I'm broken
You cut me when I'm in my mind instead of out of it and in yours
You feed me, you lead me
Lord I confess because of your holiness
Still you call me to you and make me do what you want me to
-
I am nowhere close to strong
You reach from far to long
And lovingly give me a piece of your mind

And lovingly give me a piece of your mind
"Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the life-giving Spirit in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death. You are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you."  -Romans 7:25-8:2,9
