A twisting of blame hamstrings being able to live, to be alive. A weight and burden that no longer need to carry. It is Good Friday, the day we celebrate Jesus bearing the weight of our suffering, pain, sin, being scapegoated, being victimized. Isaiah 53:3 (KJV) -- "He is despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrow, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised and we esteemed him not."
Jesus is familiar with our suffering, he experienced it all on our behalf so we would never be alone or forsaken. Bring your burdens to the foot of the cross today and place it at his feet, for him to judge and interpret; no longer needing to pick it up and carry it anymore. BE FREE from it TODAY.
When attribute someone's over reaction or lack of control,
To who I am or what I've done -- BLAME -- reality stole.
A black eye of blame,
In enters shame.
Carry a burden not mine,
Blind to hook, wallow as swine.
Pulled back to the past,
Happens so incredibly fast.
Hook so deep and pain is numb,
Such an internal scrum.
Freeing the barb,
Set will to be free finally start,
Awakening, pain of frostbite in heart.
Intentional and resolute,
Courage and voice no longer mute.
