Becoming Christlike

The natural man comes easily—

so much effort

to do and be otherwise.

The yielding stretches me

beyond myself—

and is painful.

Drawing out the saint within

requires submission

to a Greater Power.

The enticings are subtle;

and though I fall,

His grace puts off the enemy—

and I become His child.
