I Was Homeless

I was homeless, living on the street, dirty and sinful, messed up and full on shame. Deserving this pain and hurt and feelings telling me death is my destiny because of the choices of my forefathers. But there was a man, completely God but completely flesh, he took the cross, he took my sin, my shame and my brokenness, he took my pain. I am no longer in captivity, no longer empty inside, but full of Him who bore my sorrow. No longer do I belong to the one who calls me worthless, but in Christ I am whole. My destiny no longer death but now life. No longer homeless, for through the gift of salvation I have been takin in by the one who loves, the one who cherishes.
