Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

I find it a challenge to stay intact

When you are the Devil’s puppet show act

We are a slave to sin

When everything feels so foreign

But Your word says

Our old self has died

When You were crucified

On Calvary’s countryside

Romans say by Your grace we find redemption

Free from the sin from our conception

We should boldly come to Your throne of grace

We should pray for our needs and each other

Because You already make supplication for the

human race


I pray to You, Lord, You are good

We desperately cry out to You

To make us anew

From the fall of mankind

With Your stripes we are healed

And a new human nature is revealed


Then I think about the Devil

Pulling on the puppet strings

Telling me not to listen to the King of Kings

But I remind myself

I don’t have condemnation

Now that calls for a celebration

My heavenly fate is sealed

Because a new human nature is revealed

Revealed in Christ
