This Cross, This Sinner

This Cross, This Sinner



 



“Love so amazing, so divine demands my soul, my life, my all.” 



Isaac Watts - “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”



 



This moment, Lord, so tragically beautiful 



is also one of the loneliest in history



My sins nailed you to this Cross



As you bore the full weight of my imperfections



 



How my heart breaks knowing 



how much you loved me



How my heart breaks that I barely



understand the pain of the nails



in Your hands and feet



How my heart breaks realizing



that you struggled for breath 



in your last moments



How my heart breaks as I fall



short of you in my devotion.



 



Lord, accept this sinner as Your Child



Cover me with gentle wings



knowing I will never be without sin



yet, Christ loves me without reservation.



 



It is because I could not have done what Christ did



that He bore the pain and loneliness of This Cross



It is because of a love so infinitely perfect 



that I confess my sins to my Savior



It is because Christ Jesus accepts this broken 



me and makes me whole with His Love



It is because of all of this that This Sinner



wants to be Christ’s Child.



 



You are my God and my Savior



My praise is brought to You each day



Even in the darkest night, You are with me



And my Friend is with me through the saddest days.



 



Christ Jesus owns my heart and soul wonderfully and truly



Lord, I am Yours.

About the Poet
Michelle Angelini, aka Chelle, has been writing poetry for over 40 years. She has been published in many Southern California chapbooks and calendars. I am retired and dealing with my health issues. My Saviour, Jesus is always with me. God holds me within His wings. I am working slowly on a second book poetry and possibly my photography. And, I'm over 65 now and still loving it, even though my social life is not what it once was because of the painful fibromyalgia. It's quite frustrating, but I know Jesus still has "work" for me to do to show how much He blesses me.
