Set Free #Easter


Easter Lily

Beckons white Easter Lily

pure and undamaged by life

something I can never be

I am shadowed beyond the light

*

Future seeks to make me clean

hands that were nail driven

into my heart has seen

not judged I’m forgiven

*

from sin’s wrongs righted

my savior the lamb

and I unblighted

like the lily I am

*

to dance free in life

swing into the wind

with birds take joy in flight

as the willow I bend

 

Today is Easter a day to be reminded that we are bought with a precious price – that of the life of Jesus. The Son of God takes our sin upon himself that we might be free. In a world so fraught with fear, anger, even terror, it is nice to have this lamb to burrow into his wooly coat of peace and protection.

May you know the freedom of forgiveness this day – Happy Easter!

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them. ” Isaiah 42:16

 

“For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” Rev 7:17

 

“But with you there is forgiveness; therefore you are feared.”

Psalm 130:4

 

Many thanks to the Poets at Poets United who daily inspire.

  2. Everyday we sing sins and yet everyday we barely realize how much we are forgiven already. May this day bless us with light of realization that we are loved & continuesly love by Him. Happy Easter to you & yours, Leslie!
