Colors of My Life in His Hand

Colors of My Life in His Hand

posted in: Ruminations | 0

I turned to You and You blotted out all my transgressions… then scarlet turned to snow!

As I journey in life, You show me mountains I need to face and conquer… But You reassure me time and time again that I don’t face them all alone… You go thru the fiery furnace with me and I come forth as gold! You tell me daily as I battle in broad daylight and even when am in deep sleep at night — “My child, you are destined to overcome!”

Yes, Lord, I am determined to win with You!

Scarlet, gold and snow… In Your Hands all these hues are priceless!

Guilty crimson, sin-sick red, tired rufous-red, rebellious rosewood, vivacious carmine-red…

Orphaned, alone, coping, fighting, failing, sinning, winning and then You found me…

With Your precious blood on the Cross, You died and set me free –washed me pure, conquered every sin and failure in my life…

As I surrendered to Your love and received Your priceless gift, You embraced me and made me whole… You took my shame, my guilt, my infirmities, all my failures and fears…
