3. Philippians 4:11

As a rule, a man's a fool.
When it's hot, he wants it cool.
And when it's cool, he wants it hot.
Always wanting, what is not.
~ Not me

Philippians 4:11
Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.

Just a thought.

Oh, 4 John Newton

I am not what i ought to be
- ah, how imperfect and deficient!

I am not what i wish to be
- I abhor what is evil, and i would cleave to what is good!

I am not what I hope to be
- soon, soon shall i put off mortality, and with mortality all sin and imperfection

Yet, though i am not what i ought be, nor what I wish to be, nor what I hope to be, I can truly say, I am not what i once was; a slave to sin and Satan; and I can heartily join with the apostle, and acknowledge,

"By grace of God I am what I am."

In short John newton means this:
I am not the man I ought to be, I am not the man I wish to be, and I am not the man I hope to be, but by the grace of God, I am not the man I used to be.

5 Lines longing.

Tonight I will sleep with a longing.
A longing only He can one day fill.

I long to be home.
I long so much that I've come to tears.

I want to see my Saviour in His fullness of glory.

6. It's as if glass could contain the scene.

The scene of a nuclear catastrophe.

Seems like, it only gets harder.

Well, I guess the whole point was always that i wasn't supposed to depend on myself.
But on Christ who strengthens.

Have I compromised?

Complete what? 7.

Write love on my heart, bring it to completion.

Though it may be far.

Lead me home.

With thy loving hands.

8. Let me rejoice.

How can I put You down from my mind?

If danger be thy course for me.
Then let it be mine.

For this life I have, counts not much.
But it is all I have.

All of You. For all of me.

And still I have such tremendous gain.

I know You know. Nine.

You know I wished You would take me home.
But You wouldn't.

I know You have Your reasons.
But I only know it's so difficult.

You know that I cannot.
But You let me know with You I can.

And You and I both know that.

Help me Lord. If You don't. Who would?
