Swap

"They exchanged the truth of God for a lie...." Romans 1:25

Father,

Don't let me trade Your Truth
For a lie,
No switch, no swap.

The Truth?
You are God.
The lie?
I am god.

The Truth?
Serve God first.
The lie?
Serve man first.

The Truth?
Worship God.
The lie?
Worship man.

Father
,
Your Truth?
In Christ, I am strong.
In Christ, I am wise.
In Christ, I am alive. So

Let my life's lies
Be soundless,
Be wind gone,
Be skinned, and

Sink into the waters
Of Your Saving Grace.

Thank You.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
