We were therefore buried with him
through baptism into death in order that,
just as Christ was raised from the dead
through the glory of the Father,
we too may live a new life.
Walking in White
Have I not walked that dark valley
the death of all I once had been
the washing away of past sinful deeds
the robe I wear now white and clean?
If I’ve not died to my old life
and been raised set apart for Him
perhaps my faith is only theoretical
and I’m still buried within my sin?
Yet I delight in my remembrance
of the valley walk in scarlet attire
when Christ’s crimson blood washed over
and robed me in white – his heart’s desire.
I wrote this poem in response to an
Oswald Chambers January 15th devotional in:
My Utmost for His Highest
This is my favorite, so far, of all the poems I’ve written in response
to the writings of Oswald Chambers.
I felt reaffirmed in Christ while reading the devotional
and responding with my own words.
(I’ve borrowed this post from a previous one of mine, as I’m busy editing another manuscript.)
Are you familiar with Oswald Chambers?
What’s your all-time favorite devotional book?
I love devotionals and hope to publish one.
Devotionals, like kindred-spirit-friends, are good for the soul.
Blessings on your weekend.
