Although I don’t have a split personality,
it's certainly interesting to see a new way
of looking at myself… in terms of duality.

I seem to be in conflict with God’s plan,
dealing with struggles of an imbalanced stand
that occurs between my inward and outward man.

Even though my outward man is perishing,
the unseen inward man is under a daily renewing –
provided The Word, I’m still consuming.

Therefore, with the knowledge I’ve heard
and an attitude that’s Holy Ghost stirred,
I’ll continue to move forward… undeterred.

So help me Lord remain in unity with thee;
allow me to become the great man You see
and accomplish Your purpose… that’s laid out for me.

Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
2 Cor 4:16-18
