But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. 20 These are what defile a person. But to eat with unwashed hands does not defile anyone.” Matthew 15:18-20
My heart is desperately wicked,
Out of it comes the most unimaginable thoughts.
I am even surprised at times
By my own evil desires.

There is a deceitfulness in my heart
That is without rival or compare.
Despite the fact that Christ has purified my heart
I still do not do the good that I desire to do.

I am aware more each day that I am in need of a Savior,
And that my sins sent Jesus to the cross.
Father, wearily I cry out, reconcile me to yourself again,
Fill me anew with your Holy Spirit.

Thank you for your heart of compassion to me.
I have failed you time and time again,
But by the grace of your unfailing love to me
You are faithful beyond measure
And have given me never ending unconditional mercy.
