Drawing Near

Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
James 4:8

I confess I need You.
Your grace and Your wisdom
must saturate what I say and do.
I must draw near
for I am far from You...
yet Your Word is here.

Holy Scripture lets me see You
revealing Your thoughts and work
and it sheds directing light on what I should do.
And so I draw near
as the Truth speaks plainly
I read it, Your Spirit explains it, all is clear.

But I am not like You
my sin is confronted by Your Word
I wash my hands and cleanse my straying heart too.
The Word changes me by degree;
drawing me to You as I draw near...
pushing me, helping me and making me holy.
