Forgiven and Free

Proverbs 17:28
"Even fools are thought wise when they keep silent; with their mouths shut, they seem intelligent."

Forgiven and Free (May 18, 2017)

As the accusations run rampant,

I stand guilty as charged,

Laying awake in the middle of the night,

Being assaulted by a barrage,

Of words I wish I never said,

But cannot simply draw back in.

In the midst of the shame and brokenness revealed,

I hear Your promise whisper in the still...

"Forgiven and free,"

That's what You said to me,

Though I stumble and fall,

You're still holding me.

"Make amends and move forward,

For this is not the end,

Remember it is often in your brokenness

Where My work begins again.

Claim My promises and rest my dear,

For you are, indeed, forgiven and free."

Joy Chambers

Lamentations 3:22-23
"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness."

1 John 1:9

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

Romans 8:1

"There is therefore now no condemnation for those in Jesus Christ."
