A New Heart and Spirit

Cast away from you all the transgressions that you have committed, 
and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! 

Ezekiel 18:31


Downtrodden
of your own doing.
Other gods have taken 
pedestals
in the heart of your worship.
Remove your sin
like a garment soiled
by the sludge of the earth.

Hear the voice calling out
through prophets.
Listen to your God,
who pleads that you might turn
down the road He intends.

Saddened
by the darkness of your choice,
consuming the present day.
He says,
today,
make your heart new,
give your spirit new life.

He is the sun
rising in the mourn
and setting in the eve.
He is the one who aches
when you raise voices
against Him.
Know He loves you,
despite the choice
harming your life.
