A New Day

The morning was still,
I was wrapped in grief and
draped in a worn shawl.
Not a single song bird could
cheer this dismal morn. 

I pondered the last several
days; some brought victory 
others defeat yet, 
both mingled together 
like vinegar and water. 

I washed my face with cool
spring-water remembering
He said, “You shall never thirst.”
Still tears streaked my cheeks
and I left home feeling defeat.

Confusion filled my mind, I
thought He was One; that
He had come to save mankind.
He would rescue us from sin. 
It did not play out that way!

I walked the dusty trail to visit
His tomb. To my surprise when 
I arrived, the great stone,
had been moved away. My grief
turned to confusion, then anger. 

Two stood there; I wept!
“Where have you taken Him?”
“Whom are you seeking?”
My eyes then were opened,
“I have seen the Lord!”

Repent, receive, and rejoice for Jesus’s death brought eternal life for those who believe!
