Clean and Pure

Like the snow covers
The rough ground created,
God’s grace covers so we
Are exonerated.

There may be setbacks
But with God’s provision,
There are no limitations
To our grand vision.

Because of Jesus,
We have a clean slate
And can double down
As He carries our weight.

We can come back
At life differently
Because he loves us

For we are no longer
In a state of disgrace
But ready to take on
The challenges we face.

Poem by Mark Shields – © 06-4-2020

Inspired by “This Day with God Devotional – Leviticus 22

Photo – I took this photo while looking out my garage. It was the first snow of 2018. Like the snow that covers the rough ground created from drought and erosion, God’s grace covers the rough spots along our journey. As written about in the post, sin was the obstacle to meeting with God. In order to meet with God, there were laws and regulations to follow during Old Testament times. Because of Jesus and His death on the Cross as the perfect sacrifice for sin, we have available today complete access to God and His power. All we have to do is knock on the door and enter in.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    Thoughts and actions of the past may keep us from coming into God’s presence but there is no need for anguish. This day with God, let us continue our desire to be faithful. Let us find joy in our trust in Jesus.
