I used to avoid catching the eyes of strangers.

Now You have me meeting their gaze with a smile.

I used to mind my own business.

Now I’m doing Yours.

I used to worry about everything.

Now there is only joyful anticipation.

I used to wonder what others thought of me.

Now You have my full attention.

I used to hang out in shady places.

Now Your light in me chases away all shadows.

I used to feel alone.

Now I am one with other believers in You.

I used to lie like a rug.

Now the Truth has set me free.

I used to be a writer.

Now You’ve turned me into a poet.

I used to be independent.

Now I can do nothing without You.

I used to do all the talking.

Now I listen as You teach me silence.
