Psalm IV

The fourth of psalms that I've written to the Lord.

Psalm IV
Kerrington Maner

I have not been a good disciple.

I have not hagah-ed over Your Word as is expected of me.

I have allowed myself to become so busy that I fail to prioritize You.

I have failed to seek You out above else,

Failed to turn to You for advice instead of to the world.

I search in the world, though I know that all it takes for me to be free is surrender.

And still I have held tightly to my own ambition, loosing my grip on discipleship and relationship with You in order to grasp stronger the things that I think will satisfy.

I am not worthy to call myself Your disciple.

Yet by name You call me, Your disciple.

And now I choose to let go, to loose my grip on the world to pursue and clench in my hands that which is far more satisfying and everlasting.

I surrender to You everything for which I've searched in the world — may the weight of my worry rise from the shoulders that bore it.

I choose once again to seek You out above all else, and You welcome me back gladly.

You still see me as a sheep without blemish.

You do not see me as anything less than the Lion that You created me to be.

You love me in my unfaithfulness.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.
