O Restless Mind

O restless mind
unruly heart
though made in the image
of God thou art[1]
precariously close
to deity
creations great risk—
a mind
that is free

O volitional mind
with subtleties marked
willfully choosing
without heart
how can one change
so wild a companion
reversing the curse
rebellion abandon

O thanks be to God
through Jesus our Lord
an offering of peace
to a mind of discord
no condemnation
lifting the fall
renewing of thinking
He did it all

O restless mind
from death knell cured
cleansed by the Spirit
bathed in His Word
trusting in Jesus
turning from sin
O mind
of my body

~JD Collier

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions — it is by grace you have been saved.”  Eph 2:4-5  NIV

[1] Not the restlessness or unruliness but man himself (heart, mind, and soul) is created in the image of God.
