Cleanse My Mind

Cleanse My Mind...

I'm alone now--my family

has gone to bed.

In the darkness, sinful thoughts

have entered my head.

I don't know which direction to turn.

My mind feels like a fire

that's ready to burn!

Lord Jesus, help me” is my

desperate prayer.

I know you're listening-you're

always there.

May I not entertain thoughts

which trap and allure.

But to think on your word--

so holy and pure !

Your word is a light unto my feet

and a lamp unto my path.

By your word directing me—

I'll avoid God's wrath!

Thank you Lord for being loving,

patient and kind.

And thank you for giving me a

more Christ-like mind.

Your loving kindness has

now filled my soul.

And by your word, my mind

has been made whole!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
