Are These Thoughts Your Own ?

When in hand you take the pen,
Are these thoughts your own?
Do they belong to you or Him,
These poems of sin atoned?

It was written in times long passed
From the heart you'll speak,
But are the thoughts from a heart of sin
Or from one that's given to Him?

If in your heart the Spirit lives
There is no room for sin.
So again I ask of the thoughts you write
Are they yours or His?

Claim them if you feel they're yours
Take all the praise with joy,
But if you know He's in your heart
Then the praise belongs to Him.

Written June 2010. Given by the Spirit to be shared with all but claimed by none. All praise and glory belong to Him.
