I SOLD MY HEART FOR A PENNY

Posted on May 7, 2011. Filed under: devotional | Tags: , , , , , |

Revised from earlier.

Based on Isaiah 52:3, “For thus says the Lord: ‘You were sold for nothing, and you shall be redeemed without money.’”

I sold my heart for a penny,
For my next meal, next rent payment.
I sold my heart for a penny,
A pittance, a paltry sum,
To fulfill my immediate need,
While my long-term needs
Went unmet, my desires unfulfilled.

I sold my heart for a penny,
But You redeemed it with blood.
With You own precious lifeblood,
You redeemed my heart.
It had been battered,
Severely wounded, and ripped apart
Until it wasn’t even recognizable
As a human heart.

You redeemed this worthless, battered thing
And turned it into something precious,
Just because You redeemed it.
But You didn’t stop with redeeming my heart.
You healed and restored it.
You replaced the missing flesh of my heart
With flesh from Your heart,
And You knit them so perfectly together
That there are no empty places.

I can’t even tell my original flesh from Yours,
So great is Your craftsmanship.
There are no scars or discoloration.
The flesh of my heart is pink and healthy.

But that still wasn’t good enough for You.
You infused my blood with Yours.
Your blood flows through my heart and veins,
And we are now blood-kin,
Because I sold my heart for a penny,
But you redeemed it with Your blood.
