Moist with one …

Moist with one drop of Thy blood, my dry soul
Shall—though she now be in extreme degree
Too stony hard, and yet too fleshly—be
Freed by that drop, from being starved, hard or foul,
And life by this death abled shall control
Death, whom Thy death slew ; nor shall to me
Fear of first or last death bring misery,
If in thy life-book my name thou enroll.
Flesh in that long sleep is not putrified,
But made that there, of which, and for which it was ;
Nor can by other means be glorified.
May then sin’s sleep and death soon from me pass,
That waked from both, I again risen may
Salute the last and everlasting day.

Resurrection
by John Donne

Sometimes, a man needs to put the pen down, step behind, and let a master speak.

John Donne’s encapsulation of the incredible redemption from eternal damnation that Jesus’ sacrifice did for each one of us is beyond my ability to describe; so I won’t.

Please read the above passage and remember what our incredible Lord did to redeem you from hell and pay the debt for your sin.

  1. We had some snow yesterday and it reminded me of your picture. I am ashamed to even say how much snow, certainly not what you see regularly, but it’s a big deal in the south.
    The snow brings a freshness to all things; I can’t wait for the day when we will all live in a place of eternal beauty.

    1. Yes, I love to remember what that eternal view might look like as well; especially if times are rough. It seems to give a fresh perspective and remember that this place we now reside in is not our home. I can’t wait to be face to face as we both stroll through heaven with nothing to do but be each other’s friend. Oh, what a day that will be!!

      Thanks for the wonderful comment and the reminder that Jesus is preparing that beautiful place right now as we speak.
      God bless you !
