By Christine Hare Tate

When my eyes were open
And no longer dim,
I finally realized it
Was all about HIM!

Jesus knew the severity
Of my hopeless plight;
The living word of God
Came to give me sight.

How black was the darkness
Where once I had been…
I was lost in a vacuum
Absorbed with my sin.

When the scales fell off
The Holy Spirit revealed,
My deeply rooted sins
Which before were concealed.

So full of ignorance
By my flesh driven,
How miraculous it is that
I have been forgiven.


During the course of a busy day, I have to stop and reflect upon where I am now compared to where I was when the Lord took the scales off my eyes!   It always goes back to the cross and God’s unconditional love for me. Why He has chosen to forgive me still boggles my puny mind, but I’m thankful that He has, and I never want to forget!!
