Head down eyes up

I’ve fallen.

The legs that ran with fervor have stumbled into a pit.

The enemy tells me I’m of no use.

Worthless.

Not fit for the service of the King.

Stepped too far from His grace.

Yet I will bear my guilt as long as the Lord ordains it.

As long as the Lord ordains it I shall endure.

I grieve at my failings, I have failed only One.

Yet He will lift me up to gaze at the beauty of His righteousness.

The face of mercy and love.

He will reinstate me to run once more.

He will lift me from the pit and fix my eyes upon the substitution .

The One that stretched the endless quarters of space.

The One that grasped my failings tightly in his palm.

The One that surrendered the same palms to brutal nails.

The LORD is His name.

I will tell of His righteousness to all who will listen.

I will learn once more to run as He enables.

Artist's Description

We fall time and time again into sin and temptations, yet we are called to pick ourselves up and keep progressing. The devil tells us we’ve gone to far, past where forgiveness will be shown, yet that is the devils tongue, full of lies. God’s forgiveness reaches to the depths of space. Simply call on His forgiveness.

Rejoice not over me, O my enemy; when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me. I will bear the indignation of the Lord because I have sinned against him, until he pleads my cause and executes judgment for me. He will bring me out to the light; I shall look upon his vindication.
– (Micah 7:8-9)
