The Calm

April 13, 2010

Looking back I see
Devastating decisions
That were destructive

My own and others
Forgiveness is what’s needed
Who is willing to give

Can my tears be seen
Are the cries of my heart heard
Looking back I know
In the stillness of the night
I heard a gentle whisper

“You are forgiven”
These words were sweet to my ears
Rooted in reality
There’s a place of rest
Where I found joy in the storm
The calm that brings certainty

  1. thank you so much for being vulnerable. many times a posture like yours is immaturely viewed as weakness but you lead by example,that speaking your heart brings forth peace of mind.

  2. The certainty of forgiveness is absolutely a life-giving, life-changing force. That little voice that says “you are not worthy to exist) is finally silenced. Thank you for this succinctly put, beautiful reminder of this eternal truth. May the knowledge of it spread. The world would be a different place.
