Seer of all things, even the small-
You knew my heart was divided.
My sins were forgiven by your mercy and grace
(But I still tried to hide my disgrace).
I wondered why, (with my heart made of stone)
So often I felt isolated, dead and alone…
But landmines buried in a small child’s soul
Can lay hidden for years and shape how her life goes…
Still, your grace comes in so many ways….
With a step of faith, a journey began,
To examine with Scripture what was really God’s plan.
Instead of a weapon to further my shame,
Your Word brought new life-a new heart, a new name.
I always knew you had carried my sins
But you let me see that my sorrows and shame
Were also banished when you rose from that grave.
They weren’t mine to carry – you paid the price.
Today my heart is undivided.
By new life in you, this grateful child is so excited!
