Five Minute Friday - Broken Lives


It seems all around me

I see fragile lives

And broken people


Broken lives

Broken hearts and minds

Broken bodies, souls and spirits


Broken by sin

Selfishness, pride and arrogance

Sickness and disease


Left to our own devices

We are undone and without hope

Destined to a Christless eternity


But there is One

To Whom we can turn

The One who forgives, heals and restores


One God

One Father, One Son and One Spirit

One Way to salvation thru Jesus Christ the Lord


In Christ we are freed from sin

That so easily entangles us

God forgives us completely and we are restored


He gives us a new nature

We are dead to sin

Alive to Christ


He walks with us through every trial

Equips us for every battle, every day

One day He will lead us home victoriously

It’s another Saturday morn and I wanted to participate in Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday writing challenge.  Head over to her website “Lisa Jo Baker Tales from a Gypsy Mama”.  Be sure to read some of the entries from other writers.  I can promise you that you will be blessed.
