Ashamed at the overwhelming weight of my guilt over my sin;
Broken, I realize I cannot make it go away—where do I begin?
Crying out to the sky from the terrible depths of my shattered soul:
Does anyone care? Is there anyone there? Can You make me whole?
Everlasting Father answers me with an idea whispered in my mind:
Find a copy of My Word, the Truth you seek now is there inside.
Grabbing my grandmother’s old Holy Bible, I flipped it open:
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, [1 Peter 5:6 NIV]
I weep as I read the rest, …that he may lift you up in due time.
Just then I recall my grandmother’s voice, soft and sublime:
"Keep the Word of God near and dear to your heart, my child;
"Love everyone, and refuse the lies of the world which defile."
Memories of grandmother causes another wave of weeping;
"Nana, I miss you so much…" I say as I remember her preaching:
Over and over she sung and told me, "Jesus loves me, this I know…"
Perfect love drives out fear "…for The Bible tells me so. " [1 John 4:18]
Quaking quietly in God's presence, humbled by His endless love;
Repenting of past and present sins, I give myself back to God.
Surrendering all to Jesus, I promise to always follow Him;
The Truth has set me free indeed: I am no longer condemned.
Unleashed now from the chains of sin which held me back:
Victorious, I rise up, refilled with the Holy Spirit, and stand.
Worshipping the Lord; He is good and His love endures forever; [Psalm 100:5]
eXalting my Wonderful Jesus because He makes my life better. [Isaiah 9:6]
Yearning now to serve Him all rest of the days of my life;
Zealously teaching His Truth--the eternal Word to the wise.
