But He Was A Leper

“Now Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, was a great and honorable man in the eyes of his master, because by him the Lord had given victory to Syria.  He was also a mighty man of valor,but he was a leper.”  2 Kings 5:1

Naaman was considered a great man, but none of it took away the fact he was a leper.

Thank You, Lord, for giving me the best thing I could ever be – a forgiven sinner covered by Your blood and Your Great Name.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

At My Best

The greatest thing
I could ever be
is a sinner
forgiven, set free
a life changed
so drastically
that it proclaims
Your Majesty.


  1. To God be the glory, for the things He has done. What a privilege, and what a blessing to be “a sinner forgiven, set free–a life changed so drastically that it proclaims Your Majesty!” Beautiful, encouraging Debbie! Thank you! God bless you!


  2. I have been thinking about you today, Paulette! 🙂 I love the Wednesday worship time you welcome us to. I’m asking Him if He could help me write little worship poems for Wed. to share when I come. I can ask, can’t I? haha!
    God bless you, sweet lady of His, as your life proclaims Him Lord today! love and prayers!

  3. Encouraging Debbie, worship literally pours out of you! I truly believe the worship poems will flow out of you so beautifully! (as they already do! :-)) I’m already looking forward to reading them! 🙂 I’m smiling widely now! God bless you, child of the King!

  4. OK, now go get some Sunshine (Award) OK doll? at iamnotshe … 🙂 xoxox m

  5. “…a life changed
    so drastically…”

    This should be our goal each and every day.

    Awesome analogy. God bless you.

  6. Awsome, Debbie!

  7. Haha! Oh my sweet Melis . . I love you! I just don’t know how to “get” awards! I know that is pathetic . . .I should learn, but when I’ve tried, I can’t figure it out. 😦 So I am blessed to get them, but it just doesn’t show! Please forgive me? Or come to my house and teach me? teehee!

  8. Debbie,

    You certainly said a mouthful when you said “Thank You, Lord, for giving me the best thing I could ever be – a forgiven sinner covered by Your blood and Your Great Name”. I really cant add anything to that!

  9. Thanks for a wonderful poem,Moskowitz

  10. Nothing can be added to that Debbie. You put it so simply and yet so completely.

    What a blessing to be forgiven, set free, changed and used to reflect His majesty!

    What an amazing God!

  11. There you go again, Larry, seeing something more! Thank you for helping me see how important that is . . .the evidence of Jesus in us. 🙂 God bless you as you live that changed life for Him.

  12. God bless you, Ted, and all the wonderful things He has made you to be, because you are His!

  13. Thanks so much, Rob, for understanding where I was coming from with that! 🙂 God bless you as you live covered by Him today!

  14. God bless you, poet friend, and all the great things you are yet to do with Him!

  15. “What a blessing to be forgiven, set free, changed and used to reflect His majesty!” It’s just the bestest, isn’t it? 😀 God bless you and all that you are in Him, the greatest that you can be!
    love and prayers, Mentor Angela!

  16. Deb Sis: Paulette is SO right–worship does pour out of you! Thank you for the Good Word everyday, always! Forgiven, set free, blessed-it just doesn’t get any better than this!! Love to you, and everyone at church today–God bless y’all, Caddo

  17. God bless you, Sis Caddo, as you dance in delight at your forgiveness and joy of being His! Thank you for making it church here, for the love you bring and your big welcoming heart! love you!

  18. Beautiful, my friend.
    Whether we’re held in esteem or disdain, nothing takes away from the fact that we are 1. sinners 2.set free 😀
    love and grace to you,

  19. Love it Debbie – as I read how Naaman was described as both a man of valor and a leper,I see that the leprosy could not take away who he was. It encourages me that we are His saints and I am grateful that even though there are the areas that to continue the description, feel like leprosy, they do not, and cannot change my position in Him, that I am now one of His children, one of His ‘saints’ and that I am being sanctified, made more and more like Him each and every day.

    Bless you as you live a life that proclaims His majesty xx

  20. Oh thank you for this, gracious one . . .that nothing takes away from those facts. 🙂 You make me smile and transfer comfort and peace to me each time you come by! Must be all that grace you have! God bless you, dear Debbie, as nothing takes you away from Him today! love and prayers!

  21. Thank you Aimee!!!! I like that way of seeing it better than the approach I went for! 🙂 Yes, yes, yes. Our leprosy doesn’t change our position in Him. Yay! God bless you and all you are in Him, which is wonderful!!! love and prayers!
