When I Look Inside My Heart

In quietness I look inside my heart,
What do I really see?
Do I see an overcomer,
Or someone I don't want to be?

I see a heart so deeply grieved,
Burdened with too much to bear
I see someone that struggles each day
With the load unable to share

I see someone who has a passion
To always do what's right,
But often though, missing the mark
And failing to be Christ-like

I see someone who feels inadequate,
Unable to truly express
The God-given things that are there inside
To a world growing deaf

I see someone who feels afraid,
Hiding with faithless fear
With every day seeming an endless mission,
Confidence is just not there

I see someone who longs to be
An overcomer by God's grace,
To stand with boldness for the truth of God
Without emotions in the way

Someone longing to be used of God
In the work He has given,
To spread the message of Jesus love
And to be clothed in godly wisdom

It seems so overwhelming for me
When I look into my heart,
I know there are many things to change,
For my heart seems so dark

Yes, I have a long way to go
To become more like Christ,
But I am a work still in progress,
God's still working in my life

And maybe I will never be able
To be completely whole,
But I keep pressing on in God
With eternity as my goal

For this side of Heaven has its trials,
On this we all can be sure,
Our focus shouldn't be on what's wrong with us,
But all we can be in the Lord.
