There are two poems here about my personal struggles with sin.  I believe that there is no way to completely eliminate sin from the life of a human being, but it is incumbent upon us to do our best and then rely on the grace of God for the rest.  B. Killebrew, author. 

Lord Make me a Better Woman 
 
I ask you Jesus, please help me
 Be the best woman I can be.
 
I cannot shake my ingrained pride
My patience is too often tried.
 
Sometimes I’m angry and unkind
To the needs of others, often blind.
 
I know I should be following you,
Be Christian in all things I do.
 
Yet I struggle with my will
And day by day keep sinning still.
 
So Lord, please help me every day
To fight against sin’s deadly sway.
 
I need your Holy Spirit near,
Always whispering in my ear,
 
To guide me forth from sin and shame
And make me worthy of your name.
 
 In Christ’s name I pray.         Amen
B. Killebrew

My Sinful Nature
 
How Sinful can I be?
Not one thought can be sin free!
 
I say a prayer for sins I’ve done,
And immediately commit another one.
 
God’s grace alone will take me home
I’d never make in on my own. 
 
B. Killebrew
