Washed-Up Feelings Washed Away

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“You hurled me into the depths,
into the very heart of the seas,
and the currents swirled about me;
all your waves and breakers
swept over me.”
Jonah 2:3 NIV
 
 
Are you feeling washed-out ,
Like all the world is gray?
Or maybe even washed-up,
Just used and thrown away?
 
I have a message for you:
God says He isn’t through!
You’re not washed-up or washed-out.
There’s work for you to do.
 
So lift your face toward Heaven;
Let His grace wash away
That emptiness you’re feeling,
Your gloom and your dismay.
 
Don’t worry if you’ve made mistakes;
Your life is far from through,
Cuz God gives second chances, and
He has big plans for you…
 
 
“’For I know the plans I have for you,’declares the LORD,
‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.’”
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
