Own your guilt

Own your guilt
by Joel Howard

Guilt is like a friend
It comes and doesn't relent 
Until we stop pretending we're okay

It knocks at our door 
and silently implores, 
"Sinner, there's another way!" 

A soul with no guilt sensors 
Is like a body with no nervous center 
A hand that reaches for the fire 
to be burned only because 
no nerves had the love to tell the brain,
"Hand's not okay!" 

Guilt can be our signpost today! 
Ask the Lord what guilt is saying 
Let us own our guilt today
