You Breathed Into My Soul

With idols, I am through –
I once used them to console

My broken spirit.

I came to life when I met You –
You breathed into my soul

And pulled me from the pit.

My Precious Spotless Lamb,
You bought all of me with a price,

My body, my heart, my soul, my life!

I declare that I am
Thine, My Lord Jesus Christ!

Thank you for Your sacrifice! โค

For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. (First Peter 1:18-19)

This poem was inspired not only by the verse above but by a chapter in Authentic Beauty by Leslie Ludy. ๐Ÿ™‚ (Which I plan to review soon. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )


I Am Thine

I Am Thine

Iโ€™m Thy beloved sheep;
My woolen coat is to be white.
Thy Word I am to keep,
And walk in the path of right.

But my atrocious sins
Made my wool scarlet
As shameful swineโ€™s skin;
Disgraceful as I could get.

But with Thy blood
That was lovingly shed,
Thee, my caring God,
Paid for me instead.

You faithfully sought me
And I am no longer mine;
You lovingly bought me,
Lord, my God, I am Thine!

Psalm 51:7: Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Safe And Sound

I realize I’m quite late with this – I meant to post this last week – however, I’d like to share it with you all anyway, even though I am waaaaay too late to be included in the week sixty-three of Three Line Tales round-up. XD

If you had a hundred sheep to tend to – and one was nowhere to be found,

What would you do? Leave the ninety-nine to bring the lost homeward bound?

Call everyone and letโ€™s celebrate, for the lost sheep has returned safe and sound!


**Inspired by:

Luke 15:4 – 6: “What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.”
