Life In Spite of the Scars

This Holy Book where life is found

Rips up the hardness in my heart’s ground

Voiceless pondering things of old

Solitary mining for treasures and gold

Lonely places in a discarded life

Filling with redemption as the bride of Christ

Hope and mercy, graceful love

Lands on the runway from Heaven above

No need to hurry or scrape for a chance

Your desires are known by a Father’s glance

Abiding in strength what others see weak

I am learning to listen to a Man who was meek

Yeshua, Jesus, Mighty, Counselor, I Am

Light in the darkness like pearls in a clam

A heart that is open and eyes that will see

Partake in the goodness meant for you and me

Do you sleep in peacefulness and wake full of joy?

Life is a gift like a child’s Christmas toy

Morning by morning, new life and new day

Truth and purpose on my knees when I pray

No matter your worry, your sins or your doubt

This Lover of souls will not leave you without

Redemption comes to you right where you are

In the middle of darkness, in spite of the scars

The wounds that burn will find ways to inspire

Your path has been lit by God’s Holy fire

He will use you to bring justice and might

Take up your armor and prepare to fight

Your orders were written in the ink of blood

Rise and renew what sin has undone

We will never be ready with perfection in view

But sowing with hope He will make all things new.
