Repent and be Reconciled

You can’t be reconciled to someone if there’s no repentance.

To repent means to turn, face the one you have offended.

Admit that you’ve done wrong, that your actions were a sin.

Be willing to change course and you will find peace within.

 

There is no other strategy for being reconciled,

Just as you cannot reason with an animal that’s wild.

You must let go your pride and be humble like a child.

Accept the sacrifice of the One who has no guile.

 

“Forgive them for they know not what they do,” our good Lord said,

As on the cross he died. For our sins vilest sins, He bled.

But saying that you have no sin, declaring it’s no vice

Is to partake in vain of Jesus’ holy sacrifice.

 

His blood shed on the cross won’t help if you say you don’t need it,

Just as His Word to you will do no good unless you heed it.

So, turn from arrogance and from your stubborn ways be parted,

For God resists the stiff-necked but he heals broken-hearted.

I am a writer of Biblically-based and other sorts of humor because I want to see the spirit of heaviness lifted off of people and replaced with the garment of praise as it says in Isaiah 61:3.

Throughout the years, God has inspired me with a number of ideas for fun stories based on the Bible and on Biblical characters. You can find one of my articles, “A Queen’s Eye View of Insecurity,” in the Faithwriters’ book “Mixed Blessings, Classically Inspired,” published by Breath of Fresh Air Press. Several other articles of mine, winning entries in Faithwriters contests, have been accepted for publication. Now my first super hero book is on its last leg of revisions. I look forward to sharing it with my fellow fantasy enthusiasts once it is published.

I also write healing tracts for missions and evangelism and have illustrated several books, including “How do You Hide a Dinosaur?”, “The Nail,” “The Tree,” and “The Vine,” by Peg Stormy Bradley.
