Tag Archives: flawed culture



As you bring to my attention the flawed influences of
my culture,
my upbringing,
my ingrained way of thinking,
my prejudices

replace them with grace and knowledge of your will,
I begin to feel like a bionic person. 

I would like to think that defective sections have been replaced
and gentleness, love, and mercy will function perfectly, forever.
But I know that time
and everyday challenges
will chafe commitment and
deplete stores of determination. 

I will forever need repairs
replacements and
I must daily yield to your transformation.

 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
