God is Greater than my Heart

My Lord and my God,
I have sinned.
I have again succumbed
to temptation
and now I am
enmeshed in guilt…
I feel unworthy
to be called Your child
because I know
just how many times
I’ve been in a vicious cycle
of I’m-sorry-forgive-me…
My heart is heavy
with this burden I carry
but always,
I offer everything to You
and set my heart
to rest in Your love
for I know
that in times like this
when even my own heart
condemns me and my sinfulness,
You are greater than it
because In Your love,
In Your mercy,
even a bruised
and guilt-ridden heart
like mine
is renewed
and redeemed.
