Old habits are hard to break, but with God as our teacher, our healer, helper, and guide we are able to crucify the sinful ways of our fleshly desires. Each decision to die to self to follow in the footsteps of Jesus separates us from the worlds influence.
Another Fence Crossed
By Brenda Drake
Fences are erected to separate two sides apart.
It is wise to erect a fence of protection in your heart.
The fence is really a line of right and wrong.
In your heart you know the side you belong.
But so many walk the line; so close it is unclear,
To the outward eye what is to them most dear.
God has no problem seeing what is in the heart.
He always encourages to a right path start.
To walk in Jesus’ steps you will find,
He never walks the line.
His footsteps travel far from the ways the world trod.
If you follow after Him you walk the ways of God.
When you are wise each step you take sets you more apart,
From the world’s influence that hampers the heart.
Another fence is crossed, closer and closer to the place,
Where you will walk victoriously through heaven’s gate.
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me
