To my future self

Hello Future Self,
I hope you fared better than me
So did you eventually give it all up for Him
Did you boldly brave the storms for Him
Finally turned your back on the world for Him

These garments that I wear now
Are they whiter, cleaner and purer for Him
Those dead weights, that pull me back now
Did you drop them all off for Him

The life that I, you, live in the future
Is it deader for Him, is it pleasing to Him
Hope you picked up your cross for Him
Followed Him, denying yourself for Him

The life we live now, me, you, is it better for Him?


What about the flesh, the stubborn flesh
Did you nail it to the cross, mortify its works for Him
Those sins that easily beset me, the self desires
By His Spirit, did you overcome them for Him

Dreamt of being numbered in the army
Did you purge yourself for Him, to be fit for Him
Did you take the gates, capture the mountains for Him
Did you influence the world, saving souls for Him

Did I, you, get more intimate with Him
Did you do His Will, living your entire life for Him
Are you now a Son, did I become a witness for Him
Did I, you turn the world upside down for Him


Prayer
Father, I humbly ask for Your grace to live a life that will please You.
Sweet Holy Spirit, please help me. I am helpless without You
