Five Minute Friday - Broken Lives

 

It seems all around me

I see fragile lives

And broken people

 

Broken lives

Broken hearts and minds

Broken bodies, souls and spirits

 

Broken by sin

Selfishness, pride and arrogance

Sickness and disease

 

Left to our own devices

We are undone and without hope

Destined to a Christless eternity

 

But there is One

To Whom we can turn

The One who forgives, heals and restores

 

One God

One Father, One Son and One Spirit

One Way to salvation thru Jesus Christ the Lord

 

In Christ we are freed from sin

That so easily entangles us

God forgives us completely and we are restored

 

He gives us a new nature

We are dead to sin

Alive to Christ

 

He walks with us through every trial

Equips us for every battle, every day

One day He will lead us home victoriously

It’s another Saturday morn and I wanted to participate in Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday writing challenge.  Head over to her website “Lisa Jo Baker Tales from a Gypsy Mama”.  Be sure to read some of the entries from other writers.  I can promise you that you will be blessed.
