Binging?

“Drunkenness is far from me. Thou wilt grant in thy mercy that it never approach me. But gluttony sometimes steals upon thy servant.” — St. Augustine.

No Longer

An eating binge, a total fast;
Bad habits, Lord, that seem to last.
Too much today, tomorrow naught.
Oh, Lord the cookies that I’ve bought
For ‘lunches’ have all disappeared…..
And it is just as I had feared.
My gluttony destroyed the box.
I lied about them like a fox.
My gluttony Lord is destroying me.
Help me to fight former slavery.
You promised that in Christ, I’m free.
Oh, Lord, keep on reminding me…
That you have made me new and clean.
I’m now no longer what I’ve been.

(Based on Romans 6:11-14)

Prayer: Lord, help us remember and live like we are new…because we are, in Christ. Amen.
