It is in the pit where I was truly broken
and had to look eye to eye to my sin.
It could no longer by overlooked or hidden
because I had been exposed and left wide open.
All could see the filth surrounding my heart and mind.
Loneliness and shame is all I could find;
Until on my heart, Jesus began to knock
Him still loving me beside my junk was truly a shock.
He came into my life and began the cleansing within,
washing and removing the residue of my sin.
He left the scars as a memory of my past
to remind me not to get going too fast.
He shows me that life is a journey and process
letting me see how easily I can make it into a big mess.
I constantly have to remember the pit I was in
to focus on Him and to run from the temptation to sin.
