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:

THE WASHING

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!

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

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.

Thanks!
Faithwoman

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.
