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.
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?
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.
