ATTITUDE RE-ARRANGED

When father died, my Father in Heaven

Declared, “You are not alone!

For I will protect and supply every need!”

I declared, “Rather have my own!”

.

.

Bad!  True!  At just 8 years of age!

Year of nineteen-twenty-six,

Back to boarding school and Billy Nelson’s

Stories!  Really needed that fix.

.

.

And I needed that awe inspiring sight!

Of the eternal snows

From East to Far West, that dazzling sight!

That when you first see it grows!

.

.

Despite attitude, God still loved me!

Proof?  Submitted  crucified!

Gave His life!  Forget agony!

Easy to accept He died!

.

.

Deliberate sacrifice that we might live!

For my father’s demise, I still cried.

Sure, did not mean much to me then, that time!

The Son of God crucified!

.

.

And now, only real meaning remains

Christ and Him crucified!

Of course, miraculous birth celebrated!

Reason, once more applied!

.

.

But since long ago, a gradual ploy on my

Thoughts, my mind making change,

Result of the suffering Savior, His cross,

Like, attitude re-arranged.

.

.

Real love for the suffering dying Lord

As though for my sins alone

His blood shed, bore my sins and shame

For me, my sins, did atone!

.

.

Atonement made at one-ment with Father God

Through His sin, for my sin,

Personal not just a wholesome deal

I knew then cleansing within!

.

.

A look at that cross now I weep, realize

As though just my sins He died,

As though His Heart broken, just for me.

My gracious LORD CRUCIFIED!

.

.

Yes, me my sins.  Sam Cox  12.16.10
