  1. The Washing

    Hi all
    I have been away for awhile.. but back home safe and sound. Lots going on in my life, some real storms right now...but I know the Lord will bring me through.
    Here is a writing from today:


    It was early in the morning
    I sat naked in the tub
    Washing away all the
    Grime and dirt from the previous day

    The songs of praise music was playing
    Loudly and vibrantly
    I listened to the words
    As they uplifted my heart
    From inside to out

    As the song played
    I hugged my knees to my chest
    And bowed my head
    The tears began to fall
    They dropped into the water below

    Oh Jesus I cried!
    Thank you for washing me
    For washing away all of my sins
    Of yesterday and today
    You are so awesome

    How I yearn to live like you
    To walk with you
    To know of the plans you have for me
    I read about Eternity
    How awesome it will be

    I can feel you hugging me now
    As I sit here nakedly
    I ask you Dear Jesus to clean me
    To make me anew

    I am hungry and yearning for you
    The past has been washed away
    I am a mere breath here today
    Keep showing me dear Lord
    Where you want me to go

    When I look to you Lord
    I do have hope
    I know I do not need to fear
    Because when all is lost
    I know you are here

    As the water swirled down the drain
    In rapid circles and swirls
    Just as my past sins
    Went away
    As you wiped my slate clean

    I am so thankful for you
    I give thanks and praise to you
    For the cleansing you give me
    You never leave me
    You never forsake me
    I anxiously await to see your face
    I can just imagine that day
    That will come
    Your hand reaching to me
    Welcome home my child!

  2. That was so good, Faithwoman! You sound like me, just soooo thankful. It's amazing how he loves us just as we are. I don't think we should ever go back to the way we lived. Why would we? Blessings, Bonnie
  3. Bonnie,
    I never want to go back to the way I was before I found Christ and he found me.

    I am in much prayer now as there is alot going on in my life right now.
    Please pray for me that the Lord will show me his path for me and where he wants me to be.


    Every now and then I get an urge to write and it is through him. It does not take long to write such a poem.. about 5-10 minutes.
  4. Very nice my sister thanks!
