I was reminded today of a poem I wrote a few years ago about God's forgiveness. This jolt in my memory came from a facebook post from author Lysa Terkeurst.  It said, " His Truth won't leave you even when your gut honest cries don't sound so Christian." After I read this I chuckled. The small laughter came not because it was funny but because I could see myself in that sentence. None of us are perfect and if you're at all like me, you may find yourself in a few "not so stellar Christian moments," from time to time. But God's love is so amazing; He still washes away those moments and replaces them with His warmth and love. He uses those washed away moments as an opportunity to reveal something great in us.
 I’m taking a journey through the eyes of God
As He observes the chaos on His earth
I feel the pain
As He watches in disappointment,
His children harming another.
I begin to feel water rush
As each single tear falls from His tired eyes
The rain pours down from the windows of Heaven
And washes away our iniquity.
I feel His tears begin to recede,
Like a tide pulling from the shores of existence.
I begin to feel a warm presence of love
Radiate from His forgiving heart,
Drying the remaining puddles of our sins.
I feel at peace as I see His promise of tomorrow
Shining its colors in His luminous sky.
