Gift of Light and Love

King of Kings, Lord of Lords

Prince of Peace, God’s Only Son

You saw my life, self-made failures,

Yet chose to lift my face, end your life,

Saved me, pulled me from darkness into light.

Took on my guilt, were scarred instead of me;

God, not me! Innocence was hung that day.

Inside my heart you washed me clean

You set me free, broke the chains

Of past mistakes. They’re gone

Through grace, mercy, love.

Transformed. Reborn.

On my knees.





  1. That’s lovely feedback – glad I do 🙂

  2. Wow, I love this and the layout is great! How I love the names of the Lord and how well you have displayed them here! Sweet child of grace, you honor the Lord well. Blessings, Natalie 🙂

    1. Gosh, thank you so much, Natalie, and thank you for the reblog, I’m humbled – to be included on your blog is an honor. ❤

  3. I appreciate the talent and time it took to make a poem in lines that take on a shape…and to have the words become alive, especially about the sacrifice of our Lord. God bless you.

    1. Some days I feel Him like that – expanding and contracting as I breathe, as my heart beats, like the waves of the ocean. The fullness of Him is present and calming, that peace beyond all understanding.

  4. Beautiful–visually and inspirationally. I’m not very visual, but I saw in the design of your message a fish and/or a diamond. We used to sing a song, “Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me.” If we can radiate his love and lift Him up in praise, we may lure lost fish into his net.

    The diamond is reminiscent of an answer I received in prayer some time ago. During a very tough time in my life, I was on my bed weeping when I sensed Jesus was right there on the bed with me. But I wasn’t sure, To assure me I felt he was saying, “Ask me any question. Anything. And I will answer it.

    My question was, “Lord, your presence is so real and sweet now, how is it possible you can be so present and intimate with me and at the same time with every other believer around the world?

    I felt a kind of heavenly chuckle. “First, he said, “Unlike you, I’m not a creature of time. I am the Eternal, dwelling in an unlimited dimension without any boundaries such as you have.

    Second THINK OF MY HEART TO BE LIKE A HUGE DIAMOND WITH MILLIONS OF FACETS, each one facing the heart of ONE of my children.

    Thirdly, consider your computer,which can do many things simultaneously. I designed the brains of those who made it. If a human invention can do things simultaneously, how easy is it for Me, since I created the computer that designed your computers.

    I had no doubts after that.
