It will not be enough to give back all the things you gave to me. For all the moments you made happened in my life – whether I deserved it or not. You know the deepest longings of my heart, the yearn in those years that passed and still desires in the future. I cannot hide anything nor deny things about my head and heart.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
But you are still good despite my stubborn head and divided heart. And in those times that I didn’t chose you, I can see the tears flowed from your eyes watching me from my miry acts. I want to run towards you. I want to ask for forgiveness and promise not to turn my back again. But I can’t seem to move. And in my darkest hour you reach down, I grasp for air and see your face in front of me. You smile and your hands around me.
Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.
One by one you cleanse me, you picked out all the unnecessary things in my life. You removed my shame and trade it for your love. I no longer see my sin but the clarity of your forgiveness and restoration.
Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
And as I walked on this path, I know that your hands clasped mine and you will not let go. Help me more to cling my life to your promises. Captivate this heart to desire you alone. And let my wanderings be removed and let your faithfulness shines its light in my path.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
