Redeemed


12th-century_unknown_painters_-_creation_adam_and_the_original_sin_-_wga19757

I am impressed in debt
I cant seem to wring free
these bonds that tie me up,
are tightening its grip on me
my nakedness reveal my shame
my inner man is but a shadow in retreat
Each day brings forth neglect and compulsions
I cant seem to idle away a day in sublime peace
When will this torture end
when will my contenance shine
My faith is on a precipice
but I cant loose hope
I can ignore the world
ignore the reality of death
but I cant ignore the claims of a mad man
for he was either mad, bad or the son of God
No man has made such claims.
no man so bold
None died for a treacherous lie
none personified such foresight
I know my path is set
I know my resolve will be tested
but the captain of my ship
his sights are keen
He holds my hand
no condemnation, but grace
his promises are everlasting
and I await his return.

One thought on “Redeemed

  1. Hate is not in God’s agenda Prashant except that He hates all evil, He is Love and His Love is not polluted by a worldly, fleshy focus.

    Your Poem has Truth but we remember that God’s Grace does not give us the freedom to sin, it gives us the freedom not to sin.

    Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.
