Therapeutic Tuesday: Calvary

Calvary.

It is the place where grace

Met my sin-stained face

And erased all of my shame and misery.

It’s where the blood ran down.

I can still feel it now,

And it changed me completely forever.

Calvary

Is where He saw me

And I saw Him

And He spoke with such love

Even when I was the reason why

He cried out from the pain.

What did He have to gain?

He had to come and “lose”

In order that we might win

The right to choose Him over every earthly whim.

And still!

Still

I’m sometimes like Peter,

Cause before the cock crows

I’m hiding my faith in baskets

Because I can’t it be known

What I stand for, and who I’m reppin..

Even while I see the cat of nine tails across His chest.

Yet Calvary

Is not some magical space,

Or some mythical place

It had to be there

Where man met the Cross.

Where sin met the Savior

And where my past found it’s FUTURE!

Calvary

is where I shout GLORY

HALLELUJAH

ALL PRAISES TO YOU

CAUSE IT”S ONLY THROUGH YOU

THAT I KNOW THIS NEWNESS.

All of my mess forgiven

For He died, and now is arisen

Providing that welcome shock to my

Originally fallen system.

Calvary

is where love rained.

It eliminated the stain and stench

Of shame and

Drenched us in a new white robe.

His brokenness made us whole.

And redeemed,

Restored my soul.

I thank you, Abba, for

Calvary.
