Romans 5:5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
A Poem: The Broken Heart Healed
Lord, Broken and dead you found my heart
God's Law could not save and we were apart
I was dead in sin, undesiring to come
Blinded were my eyes and my ears were dumb
My desires were my gods and the world my friend
Rebellion inherited from Adam and hell my end
Darkened was the sky of my soul overhead
Lest your grace shine in I would remain spiritually dead
But then the ground trembled and the stone rolled away
Your voice had come by your Word that day
You called my name: "come forth you said"
"Forsake yourself and arise from the dead"
In faith I came, faith had arrived
Rescued from wrath, I was now alive
I came forth, "unwrap Him" you said
"For this One is alive and no longer dead"
My broken heart you healed, my life you transformed
Why put on those grave clothes? Why to this world conform?
The Great Physician called me
Prescibed me His Word
Faith did I express, His voice I had heard
Daily I need the pages of His prescriptions for me
To follow the Master whose touch set me free
Your Spirit indwells me and your hope is my sail
In this life for you I walk until I pass through the vale
By grace you called, through faith I did receive
In Grace you will keep me, your will to achieve
When I am gathered at your coming, this body will be changed
Corruption for glory will have been exchanged
The heart you healed, is looking to you
The Master who takes the old and makes all things new
