"And having been set free from sin,
you became slaves of righteousness"

(Romans 6:18)

My Reluctant One

You thought you were free.
and could do whatever you wanted.
But you were in My embrace
all your days,
holding you to Me at all times.
You have always been Mine.
I watched over you wherever you roamed
and kept you when you went astray.
You knew I was yours always,
never to let you go.
And so you continue to be Mine,
My slave to righteousness,
forever in My love.
