fix my heart

While dead in trespasses and sin,
Caught in a lustful tailspin,
I thought that love could fix my heart-
Until my world fell apart.

The unexpected aftermath:
In mercy, God withheld his wrath.
He didn’t chide, He didn’t scold,
He simply broke sin’s stranglehold.

It turns out love could fix my heart-
God’s grace gave me a brand new start.

-Wills Osborn (5/5/20)

    • Thanks! The sermon on Sunday was on Ephesians 2, which got the wheels turning for this poem.
