Redemption… (part 3)

We search for redemption and forgiveness in the quiet moments of the days that make up our very lives.

And when we find it we are set free from the chains that bind us and the obligations that smother the fires that from our hearts burn so bright.

You are so much more than ORDINARY!

Redemption…

We search for the things we believe we need and even deserve. Not realizing that deserve has nothing to do with it for if we truly got what we deserve we could be sorely disappointed. So, we search for redemption midst the fallacy of memories, and the juxtaposition of the past and future in the chaos of the moments we live each day.

Is there GRACE when SINS are REPEATED??

Is there Grace when Sins are Repeated? | Grace | Hope | Love | Quote |

Pin Me

It is easy to believe in whispered lies.
As our hearts spiral downward,
a sweet poison is the penalty.
For sins repeated.
On the wings of love we can rise,
from the ashes and darkness deep.
Forgiveness for still believing the lies.
So many lives lie in utter disarray and
forgotten hopes lay quietly.
Yearning for love,
to fill our empty hearts in pain.
Searching for mercy,
to fill our empty souls in need.
Passion ignites a forging of fire and
transcendent love still waits.
As our heart drums and the underworld collides
with the dawn eclipsing the dark.
Eternal brilliant rays of light shoot forth
like arms to hold our wounded hearts.

How many times are we forgiven for sins repeated? In the bible Jesus tells us to forgive 70 x 7 times, so… wouldn’t it stand to reason that God would also forgive us at least that many times? I believe he does, for he his a just and merciful God. I am thankful for this as it allows me to be the complete screw up at times that I am, or just a beautiful mess, and to keep on believing in a better future and a better me. To always try again. What do you think?

 

 

The Undiscovered

He dreamed of the undiscovered,
of a place that might lay beyond the distant hills.

Longing for mystery and adventure,
promised by a voice that beckoned from beyond.

She in stoic beauty stood silently by,
watching him as he quickly turned to go.

He took nothing with him and yet,
not knowing he was leaving everything behind.

He failed to count the cost of his quest,
  a far too high of price that he ultimately would pay.

For he believed there were battles to fight,
and it was adventure his heart sought to find.

He did not see her as she stepped aside,
letting him go for his eyes were on his believed destiny.

Blind to the true battle before him,
for he would never discover the mysteries of her heart.

Her heart beat madly within her chest,
for it was he that could have saved her from the dark.

Where does your true adventure lie, are you missing the truth for want of something else? Lord, help us to truly see the beauty and glory in front of us. May you see the adventure that waits for you and pursue with all your heart.
