Cloaked lies swirling.
“You are not loved.
No one really cares.
You are called by
your failures, mistakes, sins.”
Encased now in shame’s blanket
A crack in the door of your heart.
A golden shaft pierces through.
Small, unnoticed at first.
Forgotten truth unveiled.
The Light of the World has come.
One flash of His Word and darkness flees.
Lies are silenced. His voice reverberates.
known by His blood pouring down
cared for with nail-scarred hands
Light dispels darkness.
This is your new name.
Child of God.
Bearer of Christ’s light.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. ~1 Peter 2:9
