Let Loose

“As for the living bird, he shall take it, the cedar wood and the scarlet and the hyssop, and dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water. And he shall sprinkle it seven times on him who is to be cleansed from the leprosy, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the living bird loose in the open field.” Leviticus 14:7

I wonder if the living bird’s feathers continued to carry the stains of the sacrificial bird’s blood as it flew off.

Thank You Lord, for being the sacrifice for me, whose blood I was dipped in and set free. And here’s a simple poem . . .

He’s Why I Fly

Dipped in the blood
that should have been mine

set free to fly
while my heart remains tied

to the One who would die
so I can live

I’ll humbly bear the stains
that say I’m His.

Raw Places

“But when raw flesh appears on him, he shall be unclean.” Leviticus 13:14

I consider my own raw places. They can go deeper than the skin – a festering leprosy – and oh how unclean I feel.

Lord, thank You for coming near and touching those places in me that no one else could. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Diseased

I come before You crying
“unclean, unclean”

You see the emotional damage
and know just what I need.

So instead of sending me to dwell
alone outside the camp

You come too, and hold my disease
until I’m healed and well.

(note: I’m not really happy with this poem! ha! Struggling to get it to say what I am feeling. So it’s subject to change! And maybe you can come up with a better ending for it?)
