Forgiven “7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:7-9 NKJV With a heart of humility, I confess and ask the Lord’s forgiveness. In sincere repentance, I am covered by His righteousness. He blots out my sins And provides my salvation. I am by faith Forgiven; He is my propitiation. His grace is sufficient To remove sin’s scarlet stain; Cover me with His perfection, So no trace of past sin remains. He asks me to do what’s lawful, Based entirely upon His love. He is faithful in His forgiveness, Given freely from His throne above. He removes all my transgressions, And makes my burdens light, So that they are remembered no more— Become as dark as the darkest night. I take delight in knowing I’m Forgiven; My whiteboard is all made clean. From guilt and shame I’m cleansed, By faith that is unseen. Because I am Forgiven, I am truly thankful. In humility I serve my Lord, With a life that’s truly bountiful. Covered by His grace and mercy Like a blanket of pure white snow; I am grateful for the sweet forgiveness My Lord does daily bestow.

    Total dedication. Nothing about self. That's you to me. And I honor that because I know that you were made that way. I have a ministry also but it doesn't shine as brightly as yours. But it draws my attention To the faith. I am drawn to the way you tell about the bible because I know that when poets speak about love. You speak of a different kind of love. I too know this love.
