On this designated day of repentance, I've been thinking of a particular hymn that speaks of an earnest desire to be pared down, renewed and focused on the elements and intricacies of true Christian discipleship.  As we take time to reposition ourselves, meditate on these words by Kate B. Wilkinson:

May the mind of Christ, my Savior,
Live in me from day to day,
By his love and power controlling
All I do and say.

May the word of God dwell richly
In my heart from hour to hour,
So that all may see I triumph
Only through His power.

May the peace of God, my Father,
Rule my life in everything,
That I may be calm to comfort
Sick and sorrowing.

May the love of Jesus fill me, 
As the waters fill the sea;
Him exalting, self abasing - 
This is victory.

May I run the race before me,
Strong and brave to face the foe,
Looking only unto Jesus
As I onward go.

May His beauty rest upon me
As I seek the lost to win,
And may they forget the channel,
Seeing only Him.
