The Inside

 

I will cleanse you
on the inside

so that you’re
pure as snow

and on the outside
it will be

a beautiful
overflow.

You establish me inside and out.

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisees, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.” Matthew 23:25,26 NKJV

Inside The Cup

“Blind Pharisees, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.”  Matthew 23:26

One of the first things Jesus addressed in me was my thought life.

Thank You, Lord, for caring more about what is going on inside of me than how I look to others.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

How I look
on the inside

my thoughts
and my beliefs

matters more
than the outside

so come change
and cleanse me please.

God bless you inside and out!

Outside the Camp

“You shall put out both male and female; you shall put them outside the camp, that they may not defile their camps in the midst of which I dwell.” Numbers 5:3

I remember being isolated and defiled by my sin.

Thank You, Jesus, for hanging on a cross outside the camp for me. And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Way In

Shut out, put away
defiled through and through
I didn’t know the way in
to be close to You.

So You met me where I was
there in the dark alone
and brought me into Your light
calling me Your own.
