Repent and be Reconciled

You can’t be reconciled to someone if there’s no repentance.

To repent means to turn, face the one you have offended.

Admit that you’ve done wrong, that your actions were a sin.

Be willing to change course and you will find peace within.

 

There is no other strategy for being reconciled,

Just as you cannot reason with an animal that’s wild.

You must let go your pride and be humble like a child.

Accept the sacrifice of the One who has no guile.

 

“Forgive them for they know not what they do,” our good Lord said,

As on the cross he died. For our sins vilest sins, He bled.

But saying that you have no sin, declaring it’s no vice

Is to partake in vain of Jesus’ holy sacrifice.

 

His blood shed on the cross won’t help if you say you don’t need it,

Just as His Word to you will do no good unless you heed it.

So, turn from arrogance and from your stubborn ways be parted,

For God resists the stiff-necked but he heals broken-hearted.

C.R. Flamingbush grew up in Wheaton, Illinois and graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in German and linguistics. After working seven years for the Department of Defense (an easy job), she took on the most difficult challenge in the world: a lifetime career of raising four children. Along the way she developed a passion for writing Christian superhero fantasy. She enjoys humor because it's Biblical (see the second psalm) and she loves to make people laugh - whether through her writings, her art, or just by being herself. Writing fantasy is her way of poking fun at human foibles and all the ridiculous ideas that so easily beset the human race, while at the same time honoring God in every way she can. Flamingbush has been a member of Faithwriters since 2010, and several of her winning contest entries have been published by Fresh Air Press. She likes Fan Story and has been a Narnia fan since the age of ten. In terms of influence, she aspires to be the next C.S. Lewis but has quite a ways to go in that regard. Speed of Sight, a Superhero Adventure, is her first novel. A sequel is in the works.
