My Foolish Heart

Burn bright,

Burn hot,

Burn deep and intensely 

within my heart!

 

What is standing tall and proud,

turn to ashes and dust!

Remind my heart, who You are!

 

It beats and races day and night 

never stopping.

“Immortal and strong” 

It has thought itself to be,

It couldn’t have been more wrong.

 

Burn, burn, burn!

Consume the hubris that has blossomed, 

like a black rose within this foolish heart! 

 

It has challenged you!

It has accused you!

Thinking itself more intelligent

 than you, it’s Creator! 

 

Never stop burning,

Never stop directing,

Never stop speaking,

through your eternal flame

to my Foolish Heart!

 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight

Proverbs 3: 5-6
