“I shall make the darkness that is around them into light.
I shall make crooked things straight.”
– Isaiah 42:16
It is after having met the Lord,
after having welcomed Him into your heart
and let Him take over,
that you start to understand what He says;
that you begin to realise
how dark it was before you allowed Him into your life.
It is when I let the Holy Spirit change me, mould me and fill me,
that I readily acknowledge and admit
how crooked I was before His divine action began to “straighten” me out.
Thank You, Lord,
For helping me see myself as I truly am.
In Your presence, Lord,
I remove all my masks and pull down all my defences
– You make me see myself as I truly am;
– You encourage me and make me want to change
to become more like You.
Lord, remove all that is dark from me
and fill me with Your light.
Lord, never stop straightening me,
Come, Lord Jesus, shine on me
and make me a better person.
