SHAPED BY THE CROSS

SHAPED BY THE CROSS


"I pushed the window open and climbed through and curled up on the cold basement floor and fell into an uneasy sleep.

Wounded and bruised.

"If the police find you here, they will arrest you."

I woke up to a man tapping on the window.

I took his hand and he led me to a small room and settled me down on a sofa.

A grand piano took up most of the room.

He sat down at the piano.

He started to play.

The man's hands danced across the piano keys and the heavenly sounds

carried me to another world

The music became a part of my body, swirling around my wounds with healing power.

The room was filled with a scent, the fragrance of peace

Healing my mind and healing my soul.

My eyes lids grew heavy and soon they closed.

When the morning came, he was gone."


-excerpt from Outside the Gate.

MERCY COMES WITH MANY FACES


Mercy comes with many faces

In the heavenly realm of graces

The Messiah has come

He is here with us

We are shaped by him

Shaped by the cross


Living waters filling my soul

Cleansing waters making me whole

Restoring to me all that was lost

Shaped by Jesus

Shaped by the cross


The Messiah has come

He is here with us

We are shaped by him

Shaped by the cross

Mercy comes with many faces

In the heavenly realm of graces.

"Anyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again

But those who drink of the water I give will never be thirsty again

It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them,

Giving eternal life." (John 4:13 -NLT)
