We are all like artichokes,
clothed in many layers..
Jesus wants to peel those layers away,
Those reluctant shreds of self..
Those layers have names like:
Indulgence, Pride, Greed, Lust,
The process is often painful,
But when all the layers are gone,
There is a heart
that resembles something of pure gold.
When we are stripped of self,
Our hearts begin to look
very much like HIS Own
