Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis, the life of a redeemed man of God

The process of changing from what the world told us we should be

Into who God says that we really are

 

The growing pains

The frustrations

The disappointment when old habits take over new desires

 

When you become the hypocrisy that you despise

Those moments when all seems dark

Yet you see the light at the end of the tunnel

 

You move towards it, slowly, awkwardly

Your cocoon is very real

However it is not a place of hiding

 

It is a public display of your struggles

As you begin to shed the shell of transformation

You begin to realize just how different you are

 

You are not perfect

You may not be fully “fixed”

But your heart is pure

 

Your desire unquestionable

Give me more of you oh God

More of you and less of me

 

That I might become more like you

Make me the me, that You see in me

Not for me, but for Your glory, to benefit Your Kingdom
