What if you were already “right with the Lord,”
And didn’t have to live by the sword,
And battle every single day
With what you do or what you say?
What if you embraced your human-ness,
And didn’t have to strive and stress,
And earn your way into His good graces,
Would you then lean into wide open spaces
Of redemption and love, unconditionally given.
Would you then be so afraid of living?
If we believe what we claim to believe
Could our weary hearts gain a reprieve?
What if His love is totally free.
What, then, would would you open up to be?
What if you could truly rest,
Would you be less exhausted and less of a mess?
Does “it is finished” ring true to you,
Or are you still giving the devil his due?
We try so hard to earn His grace
When really if we seek his face,
We are already there
It is finished and done,
We are one with the Father
And one with the Son,
And Holy Spirit will guide us through;
If you trusted completion,
Tell me, what would you do?
