“From This Point on” was a poem that I wrote specifically for my post titled “How to Increase Your Passion for God.” It was a post that came more from personal experience, and so I was led by the Spirit to end it with a poem. I hope you enjoy it.
From This Point On
From this point on I take what’s dear
and count it all as loss.
My passion is to follow You
as You lead me to the cross.
Although I chose to walk with You
so many years ago,
I feel I’ve failed to give my all
and now it’s time to grow.
From this point on please hear my cry
and set my heart on fire.
To love You from the inside out
is all that I desire.
A 1000 times I’ve failed You
but continue in the race.
And should I stumble once again
I’ll still receive Your grace.
From this point on my walk with You
grows stronger than before.
So take my heart and make it clean
so I can give You more.
Please walk me down this narrow path
and guide me with Your rod.
From this point on the world will see
a man who’s called by God.
