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.
