I don't participate in every FMF, but when I read the prompt I knew I had to. The prompt today is BARE
I stand in front of Him, the Creator. My sin, my shame, my most intimate regrets are laid between us. Lying bare and seen by all between He and me. In disgust I look away, unable to defend myself. I am naked. I am ashamed. I am hopeless for salvation from the sentence of eternity. I shiver from fear, chill and my own disgust.
Wildly my eyes turn everywhere but to look at IT or to look at Him! I turn away.
A gentle hand stays my flight and I turn to look. A scarred and kind face with twinkling eyes passes His hand over my shame. The blood drips from Him and onto the little hoard I have carried for decades. As the red falls, it spreads.
It spreads until all the parts of my little hoard are covered. They are unseen. They are gone. The way between He and me is now clear. His scarred hand takes mine and leads me across the divide where HE opens HIS arms to enfold me, clothing my bareness in radiant white.
I am no longer bare. His hands cup my face as He kisses my forehead and smiles his welcoming love.
My shame laid bare, is no more. I am redeemed through grace. I am loved immensely.
