Devotion That Flips My Heart To Its Knees Before The Face Of God

by Sunny Eddie Crawford

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart ~ Psalm 37:4

One night,
I knock down my chest,
Like a wall hammered by anger
Of letting go of God's presence, lives want,
Wanting to plant a kiss.

Each on his bare hand- a repentance,
Revive for walking a long way there
I was instructed to seek his face & asked for his mercy
To let go of my sinful deeds, I should've sharpened by my thoughts

As I climb down,
climb down the ladder of temptation
If you ever pay attention to its perpetual twirling- always escaping something, like a spirit, a stubborn demon,
Is the secret body of the devil's mission
these slaves were created to love the world

And before it began,
Tell them, all my life I've curtain my grief 
Like a child counting the grain of sand, & now my soul is a victim of this circumstance. As I ran again before the presence of Christ with a wound heart, 
willing to look beautiful again.
