Psalms: On Single-Mindedness

Lord of reality
make me real
not plastic
synthetic
pretend phony
an actor playing out his part
hypocrite.
I don’t want
to keep a prayer list
but to pray
nor agonize to find Your will
but to obey
what I already know
to argue
theories of inspiration
but submit to Your Word.
I don’t want
to explain the difference
between eros and philos
and agape
but to love.
I don’t want
to sing as if I mean it
I want to mean it.
I don’t want
to tell it like it is
but to be it
like You want it.

Spricht mir aus dem Herzen. Hast du es selbst geschrieben?

Schön wärs, leider nicht. Habs im Internet gefunden irgendwo. Aber es spricht mir auch total aus dem Herzen.
