Washed

that cold sharp tone

makes my bones shiver

i know now

that a heart is changed

when one recognizes

that self

does not have

all of the answers

in humility

traipsing

to

the

alter

to

lay

it

all

out

that

we be

washed

from the

filth

 of sin..

God help us

 

We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind..

Isaiah 64:6

  1. First of all, your photo is stunning and I love it. But more importantly, the poem speaks volumes. Laying down our filthy rags isn’t easy, but knowing we don’t have to pick them up again and that we are washed as clean as pure white snow is the reward. Thank you, Jesus.
