Change My Heart

A friend’s poem reminded me of a verse from Ezekiel, which inspired me to create this image.  He has given me permission to post his poem along with it.  I used my son’s Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens.

“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.”  —Ezekiel 36:26

After God’s Own Heart

A stony heart
Oh Lord I give
To be transformed
So I may live.

The price of sin
I know is death,
So I must change
Before my last breath.

A heart like Yours
Is what I need.
A heart of love,
Not selfish greed.

So change my heart,
And when You’re done,
Make me like
Your loving Son.
