Please read this beautiful God-breathed poem bearing testimony of a precious friend – a mighty woman of God who has been transformed and set free through the love and the precious blood of Jesus. God is good!:
She watches from a distance and wonders what they’d say,
If she walked right in and took a seat, would they quickly draw away?
And if she hung around a while just so that she might hear.
About this man named Jesus, would they even let her near,
Just close enough to touch Him and maybe see His face.
She’s sure no one could love her, but she’s heard about His grace.
They say He’s a friend of sinners and she knew she’d played that game.
And deep inside she feels too bad to even speak His name.
But maybe if His people could see behind her mask,
She’d tell them of her brokenness and the secrets of her past.
But afraid they may reject her like all the times before.
She watches from a distance but stays outside the door.
She knows that she’s a sinner and somewhere deep within her heart,
She’s sure those ‘holy’ people and herself are miles apart.
They’ve never been where she’s been, the lowest of the low.
And if they knew her secrets they just wouldn’t want to know.
But maybe if she found Him, He’d see the tears she’s cried.
And maybe He would give her all the love she’s been denied
If only they would show her it’s ok to come inside.
That this Jesus really loves her and she doesn’t have to hide.
He’d heal her broken heart and take away her shame.
Just like He did for them when they called upon His Name.
So if you really love Him then open those doors wide.
And tell her Jesus loves her and it’s ok to come inside.
And maybe when she realises how much you love her too,
She’ll come and meet this Jesus who means so much to you.
He’ll win her heart and heal her and take away her shame.
In turn she’ll learn to love Him and call upon His Name.
And as she does He’ll bring some other lost soul to her side.
And show them that it’s ok to let Him come inside.
