Love Won For Me

love_always_wins_by_mihaisI am a thief!

Stealing time, glances and words.Taking things that don’t belong to me! “I’m only borrowing”, I rationalize. I will give it back but only when I am done.

I am a thief!

Depriving people of the best of me! “I can only give this much”, I say. I can’t give what I don’t have so I hide behind religious clichés and refuse to press into all the treasures buried in me.

I’m a thief!

Touching what I am not supposed to. Releasing love before its time, awakening desires outside prescribed boundaries. “Everyone is doing it”, I bluster on, “stolen bread is sweet!”

I am a thief!

Stealing from myself is the worst. I have lost the man I could have been. Lost my self, dignity and honour. Burdened by guilt, bowed by shame ….


Caught! Accused and rightly so!
Condemned but….

Love believes in me.
Love believes it is not too late.
Shame and grace collide in Him.
He takes my guilt!
He sets me free!


Love wins for a thief such as I.
Every voice is silenced.
Every tongue that rises in judgement is silenced!
Death is defeated!

The blood of Jesus speaks and is still speaking!
