Cleansed

Layer upon layer
Sin cocoons me
I hide beneath lies
Lies I tell
Lies I believe

Deep down a spark
Of life is birthed within
The blood of Christ
Accepted
Misunderstood

With ardent desire I stumble
Trying to follow my Lord
Encumbered by the grave clothes
That still disguise this new creation

Challenged, confronted
Accused and condemned
Reluctantly I exchange my
Comfortable sinful ways
For His

Moment by moment I listen
Trying to hear
Longing to obey
Failing
Falling into Him

Desperate
I face my wretchedness
I am stripped
And clothed in His righteousness
Wholly accepted
Cleansed




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Wow! Such a beautiful poignant poem, capturing the very essence of the struggle between self-sufficiency and total surrender to Him and the freedom that brings! I agree that this work needs nothing changed. It is perfect! Blessings, Cheri

What a fantastic piece of art giving glory to our Savior. The truth of God's redemptive power beams brilliantly from this poem. It is so good to be cleansed and released from my own filthy graveclothes - set free like a butterfly from a cocoon to soar to heavenly places. Absolutely beautiful and anointed writing!

What a beautiful poem. This is really something very special which all who have been delivered from the bondage of sin, will identify with. May God bless you as I have been blessed by your writing. Deb

Spiritual metamorphosis is truly a miraculous transformation. Praise the Lord we, via His storeroom of grace, are able to shed our cloak of transgressions and be freshly clothed in a seamless garment, one becoming that of Godís child This is a wonderful inking describing such a glorious alteration. Well done, Nancy
