This stain on my flesh is all so real. I'm inconsistent with my life and my walk, but with forgiveness I will stand up. Time and time again, day after day. This battle that's inside me makes me sick with guilt. This God that is love renews me with hope. So pick yourself off the ground son. Wipe away the blood and tears. This spirit I give you is not of fear, but of discipline and love. Life is real, God is real, His love is real.
