 Hearts of Flesh Bleed

Hearts of Flesh Bleed

I’d rather have pain than porosis (hardness)
It’s better to hurt than be hard
If I would be formed in His image
Like Him I'll be bruised and be scarred

Since my Lord was made perfect through suffering
Then even in this let me share
Taste His grief, feel his pain, through men's buffering
Till all pride of self worth is laid bare

For stony hearts wince not at chastening
But scourgings make hearts of flesh bleed
And broken hearts yield to this mercy
While proud hearts stay blind to their need

Lord save me from vain love of comfort
And take from me my heart of stone
I know hearts of flesh know more suffering
But they also feel love like Your own

 Re: Hearts of Flesh Bleed

Quote: 'I'd rather have pain than porosis...'

Proverbs 29v1, 'He who is often rebuked, and hardens his neck, will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.'

The curse of a hardend heart, is that it can go too far in its refusal to repent, till the chance to do so passes.

Romans 1 tells us about that.

It is for our own good that we do not harden our hearts against God's correction or rebuke.

Good poem, well written and thought of.

God bless.
