Shame Vacated

Shame Vacated

Shame sought to intrude
in my peace places –
It’s aim was to rattle me

Shame reminded me
with noise in my ears –
Reminders were launched
at me in rapid fire motions

Shame taunted me,
ridiculed and sought
to bully me

I grabbed the escape hatch
from the bible
fully aware that
there are no temptations
that our Lord hasn’t
provided ways of escape

Shame was answered
with confidence
accompanied by
blessed assurances

Oh, how wondrous
to know that
God transcends shame,
pain, sorrow, and uncertainties

Shame wanted in –
Our Lord said, no
Entrance was denied –
Shame pouted and skulked away
despondent and defeated

Score another victory
for the ways of God
that manifest triumphantly.
