When you said "Yes" to Me
When you said "Yes" to Me you gave up the right to be like
That is why you draw
experiences to yourself that will cleanse yourself of that which
does not fit who you are.
Over, and over, again, and
again until I make you see that the past no longer works.
I challenge you and tempt you
every day with your past, so that you may see that the past is
When you said "Yes" to Me you
gave Me your body, your thoughts, your actions.
When they don't suit the new
you, the uncomfortableness is unbearable.
It is so EVERY time until you
realise this fully; then and only then will you completely give
For this is the only way man
Very seldom does he learn by
Man's desires and pitfalls are
placed there so that I may do my work.
When you give up totally, then
the temptations will fade.
I will never give up on you.
Every slip will become harder
to bear and less easy to remedy.
You will tire of your
foolishness becase I love you and whether or not completely
aware of it, you did say "Yes".
