The Lord doesn't always speak in an audible voice, but often in nudges, moving the heart.

Becoming Who He Is
"He must increase,
but I must decrease.
"
(John 3:30, KJV)

"For it is God which worketh in you
both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
"
(Philippians 2:13, KJV)


----------------------------------


The surly soul, I oft could be,
came screaming 'tween the knees
of her, who screamed to be made free
this weight nine months decreed.

Left to myself 'tis pretty, NOT.
Yet He, Who for me came
lived a perfect life, without one blot
to take my Hellish blame.

My foolish mirror caused Him harm
two thousand years ago.
His blood fell from the lashes swarm
before I learned to know.

The mark of death upon my heart
caused Him to breathe His last,
that when my days would know their start
the sting of death was past.

He stepped out of the rocky grave
to give me life anew,
that good I'd learn to thus behave,
and live when life was through.

The day he broke my selfish heart,
He made me better far
than those, who've served Him from the start,
and live beyond the stars.

I'm better off to live as He
as He lives through my days.
For "more of Him and less of me"
is better for display.

When my life is its version best
the face you'll see is Christ
for He's the One, Who passed the test,
and paid my latest price.
