It Has Been Covered

I shared a poem this eveing with my Celebrate Recovery family. I love this group of people so much. CR will forever have a place in my heart and I feel so blessed to be able to be a part of it. I have encountered more love, support, encouragement, mercy, and grace by this one group of people in the last 8 months than I think I have in the reast of my life. Thank God for Celebrate Recovery.

It Has Been Covered
She sheltered her life
In the rags of her shame
And the guilt that she felt
Said she was to blame
She listened to voices
That told her “you’re worthless”
Not knowing, to Him
She’s precious, she’s priceless
So she kept on running
Afraid to face the hurt
All the time, not knowing
This guilt wasn’t hers
She gave up her body
Hoping for love in return
But when love didn’t happen
She was left broken and burned
She’d reached her breaking point
She thought her life was over
But that’s when her Savior
Said, “Your sin is covered,
Child, you’re precious,
Just look at the Father
He doesn’t make junk
And He made you His daughter.”

He left his wife and his kids
Stranded and alone
And after that moment
They never knew a “home”
He regretted his past
Thought they’d be better without him
But his choice caused a wound
That he silenced with gin
Years passed and kids grow
He missed every moment
First steps, first date, first loves and heartbreaks
He just couldn’t take it
He knew he’d messed up
But too much time had passed
Although he knew their hearts were broken
He just couldn’t go back
At the end of a bottle
He decided, “It’s over”
But that’s when his Savior
Said, “Your sin is covered,
Go home to your family,
Your daughters, they need you
Just as you still love them,
So your Father loves too.”

The moral of the story:
Is it’s never too late
To turn from your sin
And let go of the shame
God offers salvation
He forgives every sin
Because of Jesus’ blood
God’s inviting you in
You may think you’re too broken
That you’ve fallen too far
But I guarantee that He’ll save you
Just lift up your eyes and hold out your arms
Hold on tight to the promise
That He won’t let you go
Pray for His truth everyday
And the gift of His hope
When you can’t go on, can’t take another step
And you think it is over
Just remember God’s love, His mercy and grace
Jesus will tell you, “Your sins have been covered.”
