Revolving Resolution (Deeper Still)

I resolve to know You I resolve to know You
Deeper still Each and every day
Not out of feelings To not cower from imperfection
Or spiritual duty – Or count life off as fate.
Out of a predetermined will.  
  I resolve to know You
I resolve to know You The only life that redeems
To let anger melt away Saves and restores,
Allow You to heal Finally a new hope brings.
To bathe in grace.  
  I resolve to know You
I resolve to know You And your salvation
Though my present state Beyond lofty experiences
Be hapless and alone Beyond pleasure, beyond pain.
Be fortunate, great.  
  Now and year after year
I resolve to know You Make my resolve,
Through the “ins” and “outs” of faith Challenge my will
To carry on through the unknown That I may know You
To learn by mistake.  
  Deeper still.
 

 “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever!” 2 Peter 3:18
