I turn my head in shame
For I cannot face He who is holy
I lower my eyes
For I am not worthy to look unto the heavens
Upon a face that shines, glory
I stand before Him in the darkness
My feet unsteady
Falling to my knees
Sin pulls me down
Pulls me towards the depths of this earth
Where untold horrors lie
Afraid of what lies beneath
Yet unworthy to look above
I lay here in fear and terror
A small bright light meets my gaze
Growing brighter it moves towards me
More afraid
More burdened
I shut my eyes
“My sin can never be forgiven, I am not and will never be worthy.
For I have sinned Over and over again. How can one such as I be forgiven”
Thoughts tormented
The light now just before me
Hands reach out
Touching the deepest, darkest part of my soul
Burdens fade
Guilt, gone
Changed in an instant
To my feet I rise
Looking into the face of my deliver
To His bosom He takes me
As I feel His heartbeat one with mine
All strongholds are destroyed
All sin is erased
In the arms of my Maker I have found complete release
"Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more." Hebrews 10:17
