A Glimpse

I catch a glimpse of who I was —
who I used to be.

A stranger now, but still so close,
lurks inside of me.

The invisible God is changing me
into someone new.

When He began I cannot say;
I only know it’s true.

The stranger inside — my sinful self —
desires to rise again.

To her I must not cede control,
to live now as back then.

By the law I was condemned,
now in Christ stand free.

This new creation God has made
is all I desire to be.

Like a gentle comforter,
He gives me life anew.

His Spirit helps to live each day
obedient and true.
