Shame Meets Justice

Posted on

Truthfully, Justice expects his warrior-like ways will win the day,

When in fact his prize retreats with all that fierce bluster and fray.

One shrouded in Shame knows only the shadows and fear.

Unexpectedly Justice kneels and whispers in her ear.

“No longer shall you be bought and sold. I’ll pay your way.”

Slowly she lifts her head and dons garments of Grace and Peace. It’s a new day.

A warrior she shall be.

And she’ll adopt freedom as her cry. You’ll see.

Like the Glory of God, are these great waves of mercy.

Courageous acts of love will cover the earth … as the waters cover the sea.
