Go In Peace

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Romans 5:1

Raining tears of godly sorrow at the start,
Like an alabaster box poured out in praise,
Founts of repentance spring from her sinning heart.

Her silent pledge to reverse from Evil’s ways,
Is fragrance rising up to God’s mercy seat,
Such sweet aroma flares from her soul ablaze.

She casts all her sins and burdens at Christ’s feet,
Longing to be rescued from Destruction’s pit,
To stand upon the Rock with all joy replete.

God’s touch alone will gratify her spirit,
No longer tormented like the restless sea,
With nothing, save her very life, to commit.

Without condemnation, He answers her plea:
“Beloved, go in peace, thy faith has saved thee.”

    Hi Lana – good to hear from you! Yes, praise God He gives us a peace that passes all understanding. Have a great Thanksgiving as well. Scotti

  4. I love that phrase in the first stanza, “founts of repentance.” I’m thankful that when words fail us,tears are a language that God understands. What a privlige it is to have a God that will always forgive us when we come to Him in true repentance! Thank you for this poem.
