The Exchanged Life

You gave us a garden, we chose the wilderness.
You offer us forgiveness, we choose bitterness.
You offer your heart, we play the harlot
You offer yourself, we bow before idols.
You offer relationship, we protect ourselves from You.
You offer us love, we choose to hate.
You offer us life, we choose death.
You offered us Jesus, we crucified Him.

But . . . . when

We call out to You, You answer.
We come in shame, You wash us clean.
We come with filthy rags, You give us a robe of righteousness.
We come with sorrow, You give us Joy.
We come with a heart of stone, You give us a heart of flesh.
We come laden with fear, You give us freedom to soar.
We give you our hearts, You give us everything we need.
We come with no hope, You give us all Eternity . . . .

Here's to a Journey made possible only with God.
