"Ignore corruption and achieve perfection"- me

Shine, O LORD, even when darkness tries to fester within me,
Overflow with compassion as greed poisons me,
Bring joy despite my taste of bitterness,
Lead in righteousness, keeping me from embarking on a lost journey,
Feed me with the Bread of Life as I starve myself from You,
Give me heavenly knowledge as I study folly,
Sanctfify me as I seek corruption,
Speak to me, as I unknowingly ignore You,
Show me love even as I express hate,
Be my friend, keeping me from wicked crowds,
Live in me as I die to myself,
Be my victory!

While we are redeemed by Christ, we still struggle with the flesh. Glory to God that He walks with us, conforming us to His Son's image!
