Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

White

Isa 1:18 (ASV) - Come now, and let us reason together, saith Jehovah: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

White

My life was speckled by the past,
The ashes of my sins made marks
Which mingled with the crimson dots
Of blood that fell from a broken heart,

And over all, a dismal gray
That fell like fog since hope had died—
All this reminding me each day
The failures that have chained my life.

But in the midst of clouds of gray
Six-pointed crystals fell like rain,
Before my eyes I saw each one
Enveloping the specks of shame—

My heart transformed by a sheet of white,
The gloom was broken by the light—
My failures lost forevermore
As mercy reached me in my plight;

My life was speckled by the past
But now there’s not a mark to show—
Your love has healed my heart and soul
As my life became as white as snow…
