Settling The Score

There are times where my heart doesn't have as much thought as it has "processing" taking place, deeper in.
When this happens, I don't have much to say, but I end up feeling creative.
This week is no exception.  I know I've been counting the cost again...
I've always said that there is no sacrifice too great for my Jesus.  I've already settled the price.  Every time it costs me more, I remember it is already done and it becomes a test of my faithfulness to Jesus, and I'm learning to settle the score.  Pay the price.  Walk with Christ.
But instead of explaining it away, I will let my poem speak for itself.


Settling the Score
by Sarah Faith

"I give my all!"
I've prayed before
just a child
I settled the score.

Then trouble came
and the price was more
a little confused,
I settled the score.

I saw their hate
in the name of love
spat words in my face
and lies from their tongues
an outcast and broken
more angry than before
I shook my fist
but I settled the score.

The desert was cold
I was lonely and torn
I wept and I shook
as I settled the score.

"I wait for you"
in desperate forlorn
I held to the truth
and I settled the score.

Quietly though
His love swept in
He saw my heart
both beauty and sin
my mind was changed
but my heart changed more
and in joyous hope
I settled the score.

Healing time came
in my heart was poured
a warm understanding
in settling the score

"I give my all"
said I to the Lord
for it becomes my delight
to settle the score.



amen.

  1. Thanks Sarah. I know its a journey. A journey that seems so difficult. And we have to keep settling the score...again and again.
