Decay: Listen: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: Romans 8:21

“That the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.”

“In hope.”

In nature decay is considered a life generating essential process. A natural recycle system that decomposes in order to release enzymes that allows nutrients to be absorbed.

For us personally, decay of body, or heart, or relationships seems to us as disease, or brokenness, or rejection. Yet when brought openly into the light as medical diagnosis or honest communication healing can begin. In hope.

When we are willing to bring our darkness into God’s light, decay is recognized and we are also set free from the bondage we are engulfed in, whether caused by our own actions or by others. In hope.

In life and in death Jesus went into battle for us to obtain that freedom—that glory which is still often beyond our understanding. Yet the promise gives us His hope. Real hope.

Strength for the battle, healing for our souls, new beginnings. New nourishment. Every day. Sometimes every minute. Released from bondage.

Set free from the hidden debris we carry. New hope.

Lord, please bring Your light into each of us, so that Your glory may reside in our hearts turning our decay into Your new seeds of life.


Psalm of Worship: Proverbs 8:20

“I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice.”
