Evicted

Shame and regret
Pressure and stress
Are the reward
For trying harder
To do things
By my own strength
As I lean and trust
On the God Who Made Me
I let go
He takes over
Those things fade away
Joy and love
Fill their places
Because that’s what
Belonged there
In the first place
Shame and regret
Were interloping thieves
Steal and lying
Robbing me of my joy
My has evicted them
Bring on the joy
That comes from Jesus
